F.B.M. Active Shield: The Unique Cookware Handle with Antibacterial Formula

by La Termoplastic F.B.M. on 12 Jul 2021

The market for hygienically safe products is growing quickly due to social awareness of the risk of microorganisms. Consumers are quite interested in new products with antibacterial features; they raise the bar for the quality and hygiene features of all of these types of products.

The worldwide COVID-19 pandemic has also increased awareness of safety and sanitation in the kitchen. As items that are used multiple times each day, kitchen products are often exposed to moisture and/or humid environments. This exposure creates the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and can generate cross-contamination by moving from surface to surface.

We handle pots and pans daily in our homes when we touch fresh food for cooking and others kitchen utensils. The cookware handle is the only part of the pot that the user interacts with during cooking. For this reason, it must remain clean and sanitized. It is on the wave of this new need that F.B.M. has decided to innovate offering the market a unique product with antibacterial properties.

Looking for cookware handles with Antibacterial Agent?  Take a look at our latest e-book and discover our new line F.B.M. Active  Shield.
