Before launching the improved dispenser, Essity staged a “kitchen flow experiment” to pinpoint areas where logjams were likely and highlight the efficiencies that can be made by installing dispensers in the right places.
“Establishing a good kitchen flow is vital for chefs if they are to produce high quality dishes swiftly and efficiently,” said Essity’s Jeremy Bennett. “Being ‘in the flow’ allows them to work effectively to serve up food. It enables chefs to glide through the kitchen with ease, encountering the equipment they need where they need it.”
The kitchen flow experiment involved teaming up with a kitchen consultant to provide a makeover. The Essity team identified a kitchen that was experiencing poor “flow”, resulting in staff wasting valuable time hunting for equipment they. The kitchen was deep cleaned and fully equipped with cleaning, wiping and hand hygiene products including Tork Reflex in the new dispensers.
The experiment was a success with kitchen managers claiming to have saved several valuable hours of chefs’ time after it was implemented.
