Care professionals are being urged to consider the benefit of investing in management systems which streamline their existing kitchen and laundry provisions, ahead of a one-day workshop aimed at staff from across the care industry.
Leading laundry and food service provider, Electrolux Professional has announced plans to host a Care Excellence Day at its Luton Center of Excellence on Wednesday 14th October.
Held in conjunction with Care England and Sealed Air, a global manufacturer of protective and specialty packaging for food and consumer goods, the day will demonstrate how laundry and kitchen management systems can help to maximise health and nutrition best practice in a variety of different care environments.
Thorough the demonstration of bespoke solutions, the event will show care professionals how a complete laundry cycle management processes which incorporate barrier and traditional laundry concepts, can guarantee complete cleanliness and infection control.
As the first and only HACCP International Certified laundry manufacturer, Electrolux Professional is able to offer equipment that meets the most stringent of food safety standards. This gives attendees the opportunity to interact with a world-leading product range, and visitors are invited to bring garments or linen to put the machines to test.
In light of last year’s government report which recommended a set of food standards that should become routine practice across NHS Hospitals, the event’s attendees will also have the opportunity to engage in food preparation and cooking to find out more about how certain catering equipment can help to safely deliver a consistently nutritious menu that every resident will enjoy.
At Electrolux Professional, all modular cooking solutions are manufactured to fit together as a suite, which offers economies of scale at the point of installation and bespoke kitchen solutions can be created for the care sector based around their capacity, ongoing budget, including energy usage and menu ambitions.
Darren Lockley, Head of Region for UK & Ireland at Electrolux Professional commented:
“With care staff expected to improve standards despite being faced with budget cuts and stretched resources, we feel it is important to promote the ways in which certain processes can be implemented to significantly improve both their residents’ hygiene and their establishment’s efficiency levels.
“Not only will attendees be able to see how our wide range of food service and laundry solutions can make a real difference to their daily duties, but it will also provide opportunities to discuss the concerns facing the care industry and how some of its challenges can be overcome.
“Through demonstrating our products, we hope to change the way staff think about laundering and catering in the care setting, and place an emphasis on health and safety which is a hugely important consideration.”
