Hot New Products for Hospitality
8th March 2021 5th Team

Some hot new products for the hospitality sector have recently hit the shelves and we thought this would be a good moment to highlight them. There’s no doubt that hospitality has been one of the industries most seriously affected by the pandemic. It’s good to see better days on the horizon. No one is expecting things to be exactly the same. How we go about life may be different for quite a while, but it looks like it’s time to gear up for the great reopening!

The products we’ve featured are made by Premier. Based in Chester, this company is a leading British supplier of blank work wear. It’s a natural choice for those of us involved in UK printing and embroidery. Premier Workwear design and supply staff uniforms for a variety of workplaces such as hospitality, corporate, beauty and health. These new ranges include a number of organic and sustainably sourced options. As you would expect, they hold a lot of appeal for us at here at Fifth Column. There are also several items that incorporate antimicrobial technology to protect against contamination, something which has become an everyday consideration for most folk. Sad as that last fact is, these products are one of the ways that we can carry on and regain a semblance of normality.

So, take a look at some hot new products for hospitality and get ready. Fingers crossed, it won’t be too long before sizzling steaks (vegan and otherwise) are being served and pints (preferably craft ale) pulled in earnest.
