As lockdown continues to loosen, the same cannot be said for the demand for cleaning and hygiene products. In fact, as more organisations get ‘back to business’, the surge for these essential items will remain exceptionally high.
Unfortunately, this huge demand for hand sanitiser, PPE, disinfectants, and other essential items, has led to opportunistic new companies entering the industry and taking advantage. Charging desperate buyers extortionate prices for products, which have no guarantee of meeting industry standards, is wrong. Quite simply, it is unscrupulous profiteering.
Such unethical behaviour recently prompted the UK Cleaning & Hygiene Suppliers Association (CHSA) to issue a warning, advising buyers against purchasing from these immoral and exploitative companies. They advised purchasing from a CHSA Accredited Distributor, like Jangro. This is the only way that customers can be sure that they are buying products, which are fit-for-purpose, meet industry standards, and are reliable both in terms of their high quality and the exact quantity promised on the packaging.
We are committed to quality, reliability, and prices, and are proud to be one of the first ever distributors to be accredited by the CHSA’s Accredited Distributors Scheme. This means that we only stock and sell CHSA Accredited products, or products that conform to the same Standards as required by the relevant CHSA Manufacturing Standards Accreditation Scheme. Compliance is guaranteed by a random, rigorous independent auditing process, and in our last inspection, were delighted to score 99.7%.
So in these challenging times, I’d like to echo the CHSA’s advice: please don’t turn to these unscrupulous new dealers. Look for a supplier which has the CHSA stamp of approval; that’s the only way you can guarantee that you won’t be paying over the odds, or risk purchasing sub-standard and unsafe items.
In the meantime, I’d like to say thank you once again to team here at Jangro, who are making every effort to meet demand, and keep our customers stocked up on essential items. For more information about Jangro, please visit www.jangro.net
