Nestlé Professional has announced that it will deploy self-disinfecting anti-viral and anti-bacterial screen protectors on its out of home coffee machines.
The company has partnered with technology firm Nanoveu to customise the Nanoshield screen protector for Nestlé Professional’s Nescafé and We Proudly Serve Starbucks coffee machines, in order to ensure hygienic operation in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The self-disinfecting Nanoshield film is composed of a PET foil with a special resin layer, containing an active copper component.
According to Nestlé Professional, the self-disinfecting properties of the Nanoshield film remain active even with high-frequency use and daily cleaning.
Reinhold Jakobi, head of Nestlé Professional’s Strategic Business Unit, said: “We want to be able to support our customers in any possible way, to assist them to serve their consumers in a safe and reliable manner.
“Offering tools to help our customers to be able to continue serving coffee to their consumers in challenging times is of the utmost importance.”
Zenon Mandralis, head of research and development for Nestlé Professional, added: “We continue to explore a wide range of novel solutions such as ordering through apps, touchless machines, and screen protectors to support our customers.
“The screen protections are a great solution because they can be easily used on current beverage machines and complement existing enhanced hygiene measures we already have in place for our coffee solutions.”
