Everrich®: Creating a Brighter Tomorrow With Cleaner Kitchenware Products
In a 2015 study funded by the Food and Drug Administration, researchers found that food produce harbouring bacteria would contaminate other produce through the reuse of knives or graters. The bacteria essentially latched on to the utensils and quickly spread to surrounding surfaces upon contact. Whilst frequent cleaning helped to reduce the number of bacteria on the products, it was not enough to tackle the problem in isolation. As such, consumers began to seek out utensils that featured a secondary line of defence against invisible enemies.
Konoll acknowledged this growing consumer demand through a partnership with Microban International. The company now works with Microban® to incorporate SilverShield® antibacterial technology into its popular Everrich® kitchenware range.* Treated products currently include knives, finger guards, scissors, peelers and utensil sets.**
