Social distancing requirements: How technology can help manage your business in unprecedented times?
At this point, nobody can say with any degree of certainty what social distancing regulations will be put in place by the Government, or indeed demanded by consumers. We do know however, that in order to reopen restaurants, bars and pubs, there will be a substantial need to review operational practices.
The impact of this should not be underestimated, as it will affect every element of the business from managing covers, staff training, health and safety compliance through to critical cash flow and whether businesses can open and continue to be viable. For a sector that works to tight margins, reducing cover capacity is going to have a huge impact.
Access Hospitality has put together a social distancing guide, which showcases the technology available to you that will assist in taking some of the angst out of planning and allow you to operate at maximum capacity within the social distancing regulations.

BACK IN BUSINESS
According to recent research conducted by Easy Food Magazine, 84% of 8,000 people surveyed in Ireland say they now plan to eat out as often, if not more often than they did before COVID-19 restrictions were put in place.
95% agree that it is extremely important to support Irish restaurants, bars and food suppliers and 40% have missed going out for food and drink far more than they thought they would.
With that in mind, you’ll want to stock your kitchen with all of the essentials needed to bring your A-game once your doors reopen.

Air-Reviver is introducing a range of air purification and disinfection systems that benefits from state of the art virus, bacteria and parasite eradicating technology. Our products clean and disinfect the air, creating a much healthier environment for enclosed spaces while also providing peace of mind due to its ability to neutralise harmful particles. It is one of the only available products of its type in the UK.
The Air-Reviver Technology
The Air-Reviver technology is a unique system based on patented BIpolar Ionization technology. The Air-Reviver generates positive and negative ions, just like those found in nature. When it’s released in the air and mixes with existing H20 this causes a chemical reaction that neutralises harmful parasites, bacteria and viruses - we are awaiting tests on how this relates to the Covid-19, however, it is highly likely it can remove this virus as well.

Hoshizaki UK is helping foodservice operators to minimise touchpoints and improve hygiene within their operation through its range of self-serve DCM ice and water dispensers.
Perfect for the hospitality environment, Hoshizaki DCM dispensers eradicate the need for hands-on contact with ice or water.
In addition to this, Hoshizaki has taken hygiene precautions further by developing a unique lever design which prevents the lip of the cup or glass touching the machine, therefore minimising the risk of bacterial transfer.
“Each Hoshizaki DCM ice/water dispenser features a clever LED system which allows the user to refill their cup or glass with ease,” says Roz Scourfield, national sales manager at Hoshizaki. “This is done by resting your cup or glass against the lever and pressing the ice/water button to start.
Dispensers play a crucial role when providing ice and/or water for self-service. The three steps of quality ice production, protected ice storage and the quick service of ice are all combined in one device. Most commonly, Hoshizaki dispensers are used, where a quick, efficient, and food-safe serving of ice-water combinations is needed.
The DCM dispenser portfolio accommodates suitable appliances for different requirements from serving amounts, storage capacity and space limitations. The range features models with various production capacities, starting at 60kg and reaching up to 230kg of ice per day.
For more information on the Hoshizaki-Gram or further hygiene guidance, please see www.hoshizaki-europe.com or call 01322 616 900.

Marco FRIIA Hands-Free
Following the successful launch of the FRIIA in October 2019, demand grew for an extension to the FRIIA range to include cold or cold/sparkling only variants. In addition to this, the growing use of personal water bottles meant that a higher font was required to meet consumer demand. As COVID-19 hit during development of the new FRIIA range, and businesses began to adapt to new safety/hygiene requirements, the need for a hands-free variant also became apparent.

PEL Waste Reduction Equipment
Antimicrobial ElectroPak Internal Litter Bin for General & Recycling Wastes
The Electropak Bin from PEL Waste Reduction Equipment allows hospitality businesses to reduce the costs of managing recycling or general waste bins in the service area or at the back-of-house. ElectroPak is available in 120 litre, 240 Litre and 360 Litre capacities and uses a standard wheelie bin to hold litter. It incorporates an on-board compactor that increases the capacity by up to 10 times, which, in turn dramatically reduces the frequency of service required for the bin. An integrated bin-fill sensor monitors waste levels and triggers the compaction mechanism when waste levels reach a pre-determined height in the bin. ElectroPak automatically issues a notification when the bin requires service so no more over-flowing bins or staff checking half-empty bins rather than attending to customer service.
ElectroPak, requires a 220V/60Hz mains electricity connection, comes in a range of RAL colours and is operated by means of a foot pedal operated so the public do not have to touch the bin when using it. A special Cu+ antimicrobial finish is also available which offers additional safety for the public. The ElectroPak bin is leak proof, the sealed design eliminates the possibility of odours, and its small footprint makes it unobtrusive and ideal for positioning in the service area. Call Tommy on 087 205 4300 / 094 936 6923 or email email@example.com today for more details on the ElectroPak and the other PEL Waste Reduction Equipment products for reducing waste disposal costs.
