In response to the evolving needs for cleanliness in the foodservice industry, HoffmasterGroup, Inc®, a leader in foodservice disposables, launches its new Bio-Shield™ antimicrobial product line: an applied technology that stops the growth of bacteria and fungi on contact.

Bio-Shield utilizes silver ion technology to create permeant product protection. If bacteria were to land on a Bio-Shield product, antimicrobial technology binds to the bacteria, stopping it from growing or replicating.

Disposable hand towels are great replacements for dispenser towels or hand dryers in restrooms, while traymats can be used in healthcare, hospitality room service, and the school classroom.  

The new products will be available for purchase through traditional distribution channels or on
