With the nation slowly returning to the workplace, companies will be looking for the right solutions to keep staff safe and happy. Coffee breaks have been proven to improve staff wellness and loyalty, so it is important that workplaces can safely facilitate them.
Research shows that almost 90% of UK employees see small perks in the office as important to staff retention; 82% feel that a coffee break helps them relieve stress; and 67% feel more productive after taking a coffee break.
With many workplaces putting guidelines in place on usage of shared kitchen facilities, NESCAFÉ catering tins can still be used with confidence. Nestlé has signed the C-19 business pledge, and from production through to consumption, the Nation’s Favourite* coffee can still be enjoyed safely. NESCAFÉ tins are made from plastic and tin, meaning that not only are they recyclable, they are also wipeable, so coffee can be made with confidence. NESCAFÉ also offers a wide range of individually portioned coffee sachets and pods, providing a variety of formats to consumers to enjoy the brand they know.
In line with government guidance, Nestlé factories have adopted control measures such as increased hand washing, strict social distancing and use of screens where needed. Made and packed in the UK under strict hygiene conditions, manufacturing of NESCAFÉ tins and sticks conform to robust quality systems and standards which are also accredited to external ISO standards.
While the risk of COVID-19 being transmitted by food and packaging is low, Nestlé Professional® has released tips on best hygiene practices for workplaces preparing and consuming NESCAFÉ coffee from catering tins.
Simple Five Step Guide:
1. Thoroughly wash your hands for at least 20 seconds before and after preparation
2. Use a freshly cleaned mug and spoon
