The East Midlands branch of distributor Alliance has sourced Winterhalter’s cleaning chemicals for Milton Keynes Hospital’s kitchen and restaurant areas.
The hospital’s catering manager, Denise Clifford, reported: “We considered several brands before making our choice. There were two prime reasons for going with Winterhalter – we got better chemicals, at a better price. In fact, we’ve reduced our chemical costs by about £2,000 per month. And although the new chemicals are cheaper per litre, they actually last longer.”
The hospital is also using Winterhalter’s enzyme drain maintainer, A81 BLUe, which uses natural microbes to clear drains of FOG and other accumulated organic matter.
“It works really well, it’s eliminated the smell we used to get, and the dispensing system is dead simple to run – it feeds directly into the drain and you just replace the bottle of chemicals when it runs out,” said catering supervisor Jenny McHugh.
Winterhalter is best known for warewashers and Milton Keynes Hospital utilises the manufacturer’s warewash detergents at ward level and for the main kitchen dishwash system. It is now also replacing its old warewashers with Winterhalters.
