ORANGEBURG, N.Y., June 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Sani Professional was awarded the top honor at the 2012 World of Wipes (WOW) International Conference for its new Table Turners No-Rinse Sanitizing Wipes. The WOW International Conference, held June 5-7 in Chicago, IL, is sponsored by the INDA, a trade association representing the nonwoven fabrics industry since 1968. The WOW Innovation Award recognizes the most innovative advances within the nonwoven wipes marketplace.
Table Turners clean and sanitize hard, non-porous food contact surfaces in one easy step. The pre-moistened, no-rinse sanitizing wipes effectively kill 99.999 percent of bacteria such as e.coli, staphyloccus aureus and shigella boydii in 60 seconds and also kill 99.9 percent of salmonella and kledsiella pnuemonae in five minutes. Each wipe is pre-measured to deliver approximately 175 ppm of quaternary ammonium chlorides, taking the human error out of hand mixing disinfectants. The wipes come in advanced Eco-Pak packaging for convenient use and save foodservice operators an average of 24 percent when compared with the use of towels and detergents.
"We are proud to be recognized for our innovation and industry leadership. We are committed to reducing foodborne illness and cross-contamination by developing intuitive solutions for operators and working with them to support proper training and implementation," said Matt Schiering, vice president and general manager, Sani Professional.
According to The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one out of six Americans gets sick from eating contaminated food and 93 percent of these food contamination/foodborne illnesses result from ill foodservice workers. The CDC estimates that even a 10 percent reduction in foodborne illness would keep five million Americans from getting sick each year.
