Climate change has been at the top of the news agenda lately, largely due to the Extinction Rebellion movement. Ten days of marches, arrests and disruption brought London to a standstill in April, with the protest causing further chaos in Paris more recently.

Once again we’ll be exhibiting at one of the industry’s must-attend events this year so do please come and say hello – we’ll be on stand G01 at The Cleaning Show 2019, which is taking place from 19-21 March at ExCeL in London.

Just in time for the seasonal parties, we have launched the new Catering Catalogue which features many additions including more sustainable options than ever before, helping customers to make environmentally friendly choices, at affordable prices.

Plastic waste has never been in the headlines more since being highlighted on the BBC’s Blue Planet 2 and PM Theresa May’s subsequent unveiling of her government’s 25-year environmental plan. The plan focussed heavily on plastic waste, which she called “one of the great environmental scourges of our time”.
