Support services company ISS has launched a new food brand that particularly focuses on dining in a post-Covid-19 world.
‘Simply Made’ is a new take on its established ‘Made’ brand and particularly focuses on dining in a post-Covid-19 world. The brand will focus on reassuring workers that safety measures and being met as people return to work.
Mark Davies, managing director of ISS Food Services UK, said: “Simply Made’ has been created to help us and our customers overcome the challenges brought about by Covid-19 and to give all our stakeholders confidence in our service. It will help us to show that our restaurants continue to champion quality British produce, served by passionate chefs, whilst highlighting that we also have a renewed focus on safety and value.”
Separately, new research has shown that seven out of 10 UK adults would avoid visiting eateries if their first impression did not make them feel safe.
In research commissioned by specialist hygiene services provider Citron Hygiene, 67 per cent of UK adults said they are more afraid of germs and conscious of hygiene now than before the coronavirus pandemic, and more than seven in 10 (73 per cent) now wash their hands more frequently than before.
Unsurprisingly, the public is demanding more visible hygiene solutions at cafés, bars and restaurants since the outbreak. Almost half (46 per cent) of respondents want to see readily available hand sanitiser before they would even consider revisiting post-lockdown, while 43 per cent of people would like clear and visible signs of washroom cleaning.
The survey also found that almost a quarter (23 per cent) of UK adults would not return to their favourite café, bar or restaurant until coronavirus is defeated.
