Essentials ensuring hygiene and personal protection

WK Thomas (WKT) is well known for its wide range of travel and foodservice products, but as we come out of coronavirus lockdown and businesses reopen, customers will be pleased to discover its ‘Essentials’ collection which covers a core range of PPE, disposable food packaging and hygiene products.

“Covid-19 has introduced a new dimension to both foodservice and facilities management”, says WK Thomas Head of Travel David Simpson. “Hygiene and personal protection are now more important than ever and will remain so for the foreseeable future. Alongside our popular packaging ranges from hot food boxes and containers, to plates, single wrapped cutlery and sealed cutlery packs – as well as our new Quick Serve meal boxes – offering our Essentials Range provides timely and practical support for businesses now operating under different rules.”

Alongside hygienic food packaging and wrapped cutlery, the WK Thomas Essentials Range now features personal protection equipment (PPE) as well as convenient and flexible janitorial solutions from cleaning chemicals to paper hygiene products and cloths and wipes.

WKT Essentials Range PPE products include face masks, powder-free vinyl gloves, aprons and hairnets. WKT also stocks anti-bacterial soap, hand sanitisers, a touchless hand sanitiser dispenser station, and a range of signage illustrating social distancing guidelines.

“We have always offered janitorial and cleaning products alongside our core packaging ranges, but these are now more in focus than ever. For example, our Cleanline® range – already becoming popular in the casual dining sector – provides solutions for routine daily use on floors, glass and surfaces as well as specialist heavy duty products such as descaler and oven cleaner. The range includes the fast acting Cleanline® Ultra Disinfectant, a high performance disinfectant with broad spectrum activity against bacteria and yeast, which is virucidal and effective against enveloped viruses including Coronavirus (BCoV). As foodservice businesses reopen, wipes, sanitisers, soaps and gloves will be core day to day essentials alongside our food and delivery packaging ranges.”

“WK Thomas has 90 years’ experience in servicing the travel, catering and FM sectors,” says David Simpson. “We not only have the product range but are actively working alongside businesses and establishments to ensure a safe return to normal with the appropriate practices and procedures in place.

“Our customers expect WK Thomas to deliver tried and tested packaging solutions,” says David Simpson. “The Essentials Range completes the offering, while putting the accent onto health and safety as this difficult time.”
