It has become mandatory that we wear a mask and practise social distancing whenever we go out.
However, when shopping for groceries and necessities we worry about contaminated surfaces and products as well.
To allay customers’ fears, Jaya Grocer has invested over RM2mil in additional precautionary measures which have been applied at all its 37 outlets nationwide.
“Our focus on safety measures for both our shoppers and staff led to our search for additional ways to increase the level of hygiene in our outlets on a continuous basis, ” said Jaya Grocer chief operating officer Molly Loh in a news article.
“We want our shoppers to feel safe when shopping for groceries, and we also want our staff to feel confident that they are working in a safe and protected environment.
“This led us to Medklinn’s Cerafusion technology, which sterilises air and surfaces continuously. We have implemented this sterilisation technology to provide added protection and reduce the risk of harmful transmissions.”
Besides adhering to standard operating procedures, all Jaya Grocer outlets now have Medklinn’s Cerafusion steriliser operating 24/7. As for the cleaning and washing functions at each outlet, the Medklinn’s ozone water system is used.
Known as a pioneer in hygiene and sterilisation technology, Medklinn has produced air and surface steriliser and ozone water systems which eliminate 99.9% of viruses, bacteria, allergens and more since 2005.
Patented by Medklinn, the Cerafusion technology creates active oxygen which consists of ozone and negative ion at controlled levels. The sterilisation process is also environment-friendly and chemical-free.
“We want to be proactive when it comes to the safety of our customers and staff, ” said Loh.
“Therefore, we are using this sterilisation technology. It also allows us to reduce the amount of chemicals used for sanitising and cleaning. While we make every effort to maintain a safe shopping environment, we are also concerned about the increased use of chemicals for sanitisation.
“With Medklinn, we are doing our part by embracing technology to reduce chemical usage and incorporate more sustainable hygiene practices.”
In recent months, there has been an increase in other business sectors apart from the retail industry in the search for additional effective and efficient ways to improve their safety and hygiene levels.
In the same news article, Medklinn International chief executive officer Peter Tham was quoted: “Since the Covid-19 pandemic began, there has been an increase in the number of businesses looking for additional ways to improve their hygiene and safety measures, especially in the retail, F&B, hospitality, recreation and healthcare sectors around the Asean region and in Europe.
“It is good that businesses are taking on greater responsibility to provide safer environments for their customers and staff. The fundamental aspect to increasing safety is by increasing hygiene levels and here is where Medklinn can help as it is our area of expertise.
“With Cerafusion technology, a higher level of hygiene and safety can be achieved with the continuous sterilisation of any indoor space. A sterilised environment will be safer from harmful pathogens and pollutants. It is effective, efficient, safe and a green way to provide added safety, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic.”
