Tork launches new biodegradable kitchen cleaning cloths
Tork has launched new reusable and disposable cleaning cloths to UK foodservice.
The workplace hygiene brand’s new biodegradable cloths are heat resistant up to 250 degrees centigrade and made from natural fibres.
Rachel Thompson, product and segment manager at SCA Hygiene Products UK, said: “As a business, we’re always in search of innovative solution which will help operators and catering teams deliver impeccable hygiene standards for their customers in order to keep them safe.
“The launch of our multi-purpose cloths will see an end to the grubby kitchen cloth, traditionally seen hanging from a chef or catering teams’ apron.”
The cloths, which have a folded length of 38.5cm and an unfolded length of 42.8cm, are available in packs of 85 and can be used individually or with a dispenser.
Thompson added: “What we have designed and manufactured is a safe, disposable solution which can be used to handle hot pans, plates and to wipe down surfaces to eliminate any concerns around cross contamination.”
Moy Park takes pulled chicken to the streets

Aimed at caterers who want to cash in on current trends, Moy Park’s pulled chicken comes frozen in Original and Smoky BBQ flavours.
Frannie Santos-Mawdsley, senior customer marketing manager for European foodservice at Moy Park, said: “With its heartland in simple, strong flavours, the street food influence is one of the biggest developments to hit foodservice.
“In creating our delicious new Street-Style Pulled Chicken lines, we’re giving caterers all the tools they need to profit from this burgeoning trend, keep menus fresh and reap the labour and cost-saving benefits of using quality frozen food.”
The products can be cooked in a microwave and are supplied in customer-size portions.
