Meiko has launched its own warewashing chemical range called Active, in partnership with water, hygiene and infection prevention specialist, Ecolab.
The introduction is being supported by Meiko UK with training and a new line of dosing equipment.
Meiko UK MD Paul Anderson said: “This is a unique partnership that brings together two global experts in their fields.
“The Meiko Active range has been designed by Meiko, using Ecolab’s expertise, to provide our customers with the sparkling dishwashing results they expect, but using the most sustainable formulations possible.”
He underlined: “Hygiene – especially inactivating Covid and the other food poisoning bugs – is top priority. Our goal is to offer the complete package of machine, chemicals and service to consistently achieve this, providing the customer with absolute peace of mind.
“With modern innovations such as integral reverse osmosis – invented by Meiko Germany and which minimises the use of detergents especially – dishwash chemicals must work harder than ever. Our partnership with Ecolab also ensures that they can also work more sustainably than ever.
“With the launch of our ecologically aware range of chemicals, now we and our customers both know that we’re doing our bit to help the environment.”
The Meiko Active range is said to minimise the use of chlorine and phosphates as far as possible and it also does not use EDTA or NTA acids.
Meiko has also designed the Meiko Active Eco range of detergents and rinse aid to satisfy the demand for the most sustainable products. Meiko Active Eco does not use chlorine, phosphates or other harsh contaminants such as NTA and EDTA. It has also achieved the Nordic Swan accreditation for ecologically sensitive warewashing.
