AAHAR ’2013 SHOW SUPPLEMENT Contd. from page no. 1 Association of India (HOTREMAI), and All India Food Processors’ Association (AIFPA) will be the associates for the event. Held since 1981, Aahar has emerged as one of the most important annual trade shows for the food & beverage and the hospitality industry, in India. In the last year’s edition, Aahar attracted 565 exhibitors, including 72 from 19 overseas countries, and in this year the number of exhibitors and visitors are expected to increase even further. 22,264 business visitors, which included 226 overseas business visitors from countries such as Australia, Bangladesh, Belgium, China, Canada, Finalnd, Ghana, Hong Kong, Italy, Kuwait, Pakistan, Malaysia, Nigeria, Nepal, New Zealand, Oman, the Philippines, Spain, Sri Lanka, Sweden, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom and United States of America visited Aahar 2012, which was an appreciable enhancement as compared to a figure of 13,853 business visitors for Aahar 2011.

The annual show, like its previous versions, will be comprehensively represented by the food & beverage, and as well as by the hospitality industry. The exhaustive product range on display will include fruits and vegetables, dairy products, bakery & confectionary products, bakery and confectionery equipments, organic and health products, meat and poultry products, processed food products, wines and beverages, food ingredients, food preservatives, kitchen equipment, kitchenware equipment, food & beverage equipment, food processing, packaging equipment and machinery, farm equipment and supplies, laundry products, guest room products, air & water pollution control equipment and accessories, furniture and interior decoration products, sports and fitness equipment among others. In Aahar 2012, 90 percent of the participants indicated that their objectives were achieved. This points to high level satisfaction at the last year’s exhibition. At this year’s edition, the satisfaction levels of the visitors and

exhibitors are expected to be even higher. However, Aahar 2013, like its previous editions, will be much more than a mega business platform for the buyers and sellers in the food & beverage and the hospitality industry. Aahar is not only about closing the deals but also about opening the eyes to new realties and

evolutions. The event can act as a great platform for the visitors and exhibitors to refresh their information and knowledge base and keep themselves abreast of the evolving trends in various facets of the F&B and hospitality industry. With both these sectors showing promising potential, not only the present, but also the future of Aahar seem to be bright.

The Changing Face of the Bakery Industry


ike all other facets of life, the Indian bakery industry is passing through several changes. Many of these changes have graduated as happening trends, with the further potential of coalescing into norms in the Indian bakery industry of the near future. There is no denying the fact that bakeries and cake shops of metropolitan India are increasingly assuming a sleek look. Though the unorganised segment of the Indian bakery industry still accounts for 65 percent of the market share of the Indian bakery industry, the visions of sweaty bakers kneading dough and taking out trays of breads and biscuits are slowly getting blurred, particularly for an upwardly mobile consumer of bakery products residing in a metropolitan city of India. In their place, visions of sleek bakery outlets or a chain of retail bakery outlets selling new-age healthy bakery products are gaining prominence. Also most hotels, especially the five and four-star properties, are giving due importance to bakery


business. They are busy creating unique bakery products to cater to the interests of their discerning consumers. Nowadays, almost all top-notch hotels have a patisserie or a cake shop within their premises, which shows the popularity of bakery products with the swish set. Like the look and feel of the bakeries, the bakery products are also going through changes. While a decade earlier, many bakeries in the hospitality properties used frozen products and premixes such as croissant laminates, cookie dough, bread dough, etc. But the baking trend in hotels is now going back towards the good old days of baking without moulds, in open ovens. Health has become one of the important factors for the Indian bakery industry, as with the rising incidences of cholesterol and cardiac problems our society at large is becoming more health conscious. This is necessitating the bakery industry in India to reinvent itself. In fact, this shift in preference towards healthy bakery

products has induced many bakeries to change their offerings. One of the trends is the growing influence of the rising wave of health consciousness in the society on the assorted bakery products. This is being manifested not only by a slew of healthy breads but also by a range of healthy snacks in the Indian bakeries that could keep the cholesterol in check and the diabetes at bay. Healthy whole wheat breads and sugar free desserts are gaining currency in the Indian market. Then there is the growing popularity of chocolates as gift items, especially in the metros and other big cities of India. At the same time, some sections of people in the metropolitan India are not content with run-of-the-mill or standardised cakes and chocolates for their festive and special occasions. They want their cakes and chocolates to be customised, and also embodying certain specific themes. This growing demand for designer cakes and

chocolates in turn is leading to the emergence of an increasing number of talented chocolatiers and creators of designer desserts in the metropolitan India. Overall, the market for the desserts is evolving fast. The popularity of branded ice-creams is also on the rise, as is the consumption of fast food products like pizza and burger, which have influences on the bakery industry. Over the years, the Indian ice-cream industry is making a shift towards the organised from the disorganised, though the disorganised sector of the Indian icecream industry is still much larger than the organised segment. We have been witness to the trend where the ice-cream hawkers selling their home made products are fast dwindling from the metropolitan landscape, and in their place we are seeing the mushrooming of mobile pushcarts selling branded ice-creams of Mother Dairy, Amul, Kwality Wall’s, etc. These branded ice-cream products are also abundant in any good retail grocery store in a big city, and they are also retailed from malls and supermarkets. With the increasing demand for ice-creams, several international brands are eyeing the potential of ice-cream industry in India with great interest. Some of these players have already entered the Indian market, while the Indian icecream brands are on an expansion mode. Overall, the concept of bakeries is undergoing a change. Many bakery joints in metros are now becoming popular hangout zones, and many coffee cafes serving bakery products, and as well as bakeries in five-star properties are seen offering breakfast, lunch and dinner options. Not so long ago, biscuits and cakes were used to be packed in wax papers. Now no branded biscuit or cake manufacturer of India probably could afford to do this, and still hope to survive the forces of competition. These days, most of the organised players in the biscuit industry do pack their biscuits in flexible laminates of composite structures, where every component fulfils a specific function. These laminates have desirable properties such as moisture barrier, gas barrier, and give protection against heat. Biscuits are also being packed in plain cardboard boxes. Its main aim is perhaps to differentiate the product from its competitors, and stand out in the crowd. At the same time, bakery industry, especially the unorganised segment of the bakery industry is facing the challenges of sourcing quality ingredients and equipment, in order to reach international standards. The growing breed of discerning clientele with global exposure and disposable incomes are inducing Indian bakeries and also the big and small companies engaged in the manufacture of bakery products to adopt international standards. However, towards their goal to meet the international standards, perhaps the greatest challenge faced by the bakery industry is to maintain the quality of its basic ingredients. Flour, yeast, butter, sugar, and fruits should undergo stringent quality control in order to attain international quality bakery products, embodying great health and taste. It is not feasible to import all of them, but use of standardised ingredients can facilitate a solution. Presently, one of the major challenges for the small bakeries lies in the procurement of quality bakery ingredients domestically, as imports of ingredients is not always cost-effective. If all the possible ingredients for the bakery industry were made available locally, and at par with international quality, it would benefit many small unorganised players more than the huge bakery retail chains. However, standardisation of quality ingredients is a necessary but not sufficient condition for ensuring international quality products in the Indian bakeries. The health and hygiene of the bakers or dough mixing personnel are equally important, as is the temperature controlled working environments. Source: Bakery Review


Towards Green Hospitality Green hospitality may seem to be a fashion statement, but actually it is a necessity of our times. The growing eco-friendly attitude among people was bound to reflect in greater spread of the culture of eco-tourism and eventually more green hospitality options, as tourism and hospitality, at the end of the day, is essentially about people. And that is what is becoming evident these days, both globally and domestically. Today, business and leisure tourists travelling to or within India can find a host of eco-friendly hospitality options to suit their needs and lifestyle. From five-star properties to luxury tented accommodations, to eco villages and idyllic resorts, now one has lots of options to explore sustainable luxury, in picturesque locales. Not only do these places offer a refreshing approach to tourism, but many of them are also located in some of the most beautiful and scenic parts of India. Lemon Tree Hotels, a prominent chain of upscale business and leisure hotels with domestic presence is also a prominent name in the realm of India’s eco-friendly hospitality industry. Lemon Tree Hotels, which operates 14 upscale hotels across 12 destinations in the country, with presence in Ahmedabad, Chennai, Hyderabad, Aurangabad, East Delhi, Indore, Bangalore, Goa, Muhamma — located in west of Kumarakom— Chandigarh, Pune and Gurgaon, has over the years implemented many eco-friendly processes for energy and water preservation, responsible waste management practices as well as measures to control water, noise and environmental pollution. The energy conservation measures implemented by Lemon Tree Hotels include using Variable Refrigerant Volume (VRV) technology for air-conditioning, which gives 30 percent more efficiency and superior comfort than conventional technologies in airconditioning. The hotel chain has also introduced CFL lighting, which provides as much light as a conventional bulb, while consuming far less energy. The hotels of the chain have been designed for maximum exploitation of natural light; leading to conservation of electricity. Apeejay Surrendra Park Hotels is another hospitality group that is quite serious about its green visions. Take the case of The Park Hyderabad, a seven-star luxury boutique hotel with a stunning façade. Designed by Chicagobased architectural and engineering firm, Skidmore Owings and Merrill, the property reflects Hyderabad’s local craftsmanship, and rich cultural legacy. The hotel’s contemporary design derives inspiration from Hyderabad’s traditional lineage as a historical nerve centre and a modern day capital of design and production of precious stones and rich textiles. However, what makes this modern Indian palace really singular is that it is India’s first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certified green hotel. Wrapped by over 6200 aluminum panels that endows a shading effect and facilitates in energy conservation, the hotel represents the best of responsible luxury. The façade of perforated metal helps to protect the building’s high performance windows from the natural wraths of sun and rain. The firm entrusted to design the hotel, in collaboration with the Stevens Institute of Technology’s Product Architecture Lab in Hoboken, New Jersey, had worked on energy conservation system of the hotel, which has contributed to 20 percent decrease of energy usage in the hotel. Local climate, day lighting, solar gain were only some of the factors which were taken into account during the design of the building, with the

objective of optimising the light and heat gain. The rooms of the property afford wonderful scenery of Hussain Sagar Lake, and also of the fast-paced city of great past and promising present, but at the same time are also shielded from receiving much heat of the Sun. The 270-room hotel has been built by adhering to the construction norms of the US Green Building Council, and it manages to raise the standard of contemporary boutique hotels in India. Succinctly, in this hotel, high-end technology has been creatively used to address the needs of energy conservation. The grandeur of the hotel in no way comprises on its sustainable character. Taj group has also married its century-old legacy of classy opulence with the trendy ecofriendly culture of the times, which in the coming years may lead to the emergence of an unbeatable hospitality combination. Wherever land is available

in hotels coming under this nationally renowned hospitality group, kitchen waste and dry leaves are converted into compost; waste paper from printing is reused as writing pads; pipe steel waste is used as safety railings or in barricades; and old bed sheets are used to make linen bags and cotton napkins. Solar water heating systems at the Taj West End, Bangalore have saved over 51,000 litres of fuel over the last three years, and a biogas plant was set up at Rambagh Palace, Jaipur, which facilitates in cutting energy costs. Battery operated boats connect Taj Lake Palace, Udaipur, to the mainland. They have replaced gasoline-run boats. Here it deserves a mention that the grandiose property stands at the middle of the famous Pichola Lake. In order to increase its energy supply, the Taj Mahal Hotel, New Delhi, has installed solar panels on its rooftop. The Leela Palaces, Hotels and Resorts is also embracing environmental practices in a big

way. The water of the swimming pool of The Leela Palace Bangalore is heated with solar panels, which are installed on the roof of the porch. At The Leela Palace, New Delhi, wastewater is treated through a multi-stage process, by the state-of-the-art sewage treatment plants. Treatment of the wastewater is followed by its reusing or recycling. However, all said and done, despite such noteworthy above mentioned examples in green hospitality, an opinion floats in some select sections of the Indian hospitality industry that eco-friendly hospitality is a costly proposition entailing huge initial investment. Thus many think they take longer time than conventional not so eco-friendly properties to become profitable realities. At the same time, thankfully many in the industry believe that the apparent and latent benefits of green hospitality properties would eventually override the factor of increased initial investments.

Pest Management of Warehouses


he role of warehouses in the global economy is immense. As an entrepreneur, whether you need to store goods for exports or for the domestic market, you need the support of warehouses. Especially, the role of effective warehouse management in the clean & hygiene and food & beverage industry simply cannot be overstated. In the context of these industries, keeping the warehouse free of pests like rodents, insects, birds, etc. is not only essential to avoid the wastage of food products kept in these warehouses, but also to keep those food products clean and safe. It is shocking that approximately 6348 tonnes of food grains stored in various government outlets across the country were damaged during April 2010 to January 2011. In Gujarat, 2595 tonnes of food grains were damaged during that


small time period. Close to 10 lakh tonnes of food grains were damaged in India during 19972007. Pest attack is one of the major reasons behind the damage of food grains. There is hardly any need to say the obvious that India’s food crisis is not a problem of food shortage but of food wastage. According to the World Food Program, more than one quarter of the world’s undernourished people are accounted by India. The country ranks a dismal 66th in the world in terms of battling hunger. Over 20 crore people in India go hungry to sleep, on an average night. In this context, wastage of food by pests is nothing short of criminal. However, because of our inability to control pests in warehouses, these criminal acts of negligence happen on a fairly rampant basis. Though we waste food grains of Rs.60000 crores annually on an average, in real terms the

cost happens to be much higher. Of course, middlemen, transportation lacunae and dearth of cold storage facilities have also contributed to the prevailing food inflation in India, but this monstrous problem can be countered to a great extent if we can significantly lower the incidence of wastage of food products through effective pest control measures. Warehouse pest control is an integral part of routine maintenance procedure. However, commercial storage warehouses present various challenges for pest control programs. There are various types of insects, birds, animals, etc. that can have their infesting influence on the warehouse. If the warehouse is dealing with food and perishable commodities, the challenges of storage become more taxing. But whatever may be the product or the product range stored in the warehouse, it is extremely important for the clientele of commercial pest control that their storage facilities and warehouses are effectively treated.

The products stored in warehouses are often susceptible to irreparable damage, chief among them being through infestation and contamination. Therefore it doesn’t deserve a mention that extreme attention needs to be paid to the sanitation of the warehouse due to the fact that business products, usually food, are stored here after manufacturing and prior to distribution, but sanitation alone, though necessary, is not the sufficient condition for comprehensive maintenance of a warehouse. Though sanitation should be the focus of every integrated pest management program, it is neither the beginning nor the culmination of a maintenance exercise in a warehouse. Assessment, identification of the pests, personalised programmes, sanitation, prevention, environmental controls together create a holistic approach towards protecting and ensuring that a warehouse is kept pest free. For effective pest control in warehouses it is essential to have a regular warehouse audit. Even if there is a single spotting of any pest during a warehouse audit it can be detrimental to the company’s finances and reputation. Of course, for that auditors should be very particular about cleanliness and safety of storage facilities. As per the audit norms, the presence of pests in warehouses is an indication of the company’s negligence or callousness towards adherence to proper sanitation procedures. Therefore, we can say that the prospect of regular audit can be an inducement or a pressure for housekeeping staff to maintain stringent pest control standards in warehouses. Overcoming the accumulation of pests both inside and in the vicinity of the warehouse does directly depend upon the sanitation schedules. They determine what remedies will be needed to address pest management issues germane to the concerned warehouse. Therefore we can say that maintenance of sanitation schedules and adhering to them without fail can help the company prevent many potential health hazards through pest infestation, and its associated legal and financial problems. An ideal integrated pest management programme should commence with a detailed survey of the premises. Characteristic problem areas that most pest management services investigate in warehouses before developing their pest management action plan are usually entrance point for pests, surrounding areas such as garbage stations, gardens, etc., and whether there are any spillages from torn boxes or broken containers of food. Spillages from torn boxes or broken containers attract pests, and storage of pallets or boxes adjacent to walls can provide secured hiding places for pests, thereby making their tracing a challenging task. There should be at least half a meter distance between stored goods and wall-floor junctions. Besides fumigation and applying insecticides, there is a basic method of pest control, which entails simply cleaning to eliminate harborage and food in the warehouse and around the storage area. Using preventive pest control measures like this is better than curative options involving toxic chemicals like fumigation and insecticide, provided they are taken in time. Simple preventive steps like ensuring that there is no crack or gap in or along the windows and doors, there is a mosquito net to cover ventilation and windows, keeping the toilets and locker rooms not within the warehouse, ensuring that there is no presence of garbage and open water disposal system in the warehouse will help to keep the pests at bay. It is common knowledge that pests and animals are always looking for food and water for survival and the availability of food and water will induce them to come to a warehouse or any habitat for that matter. By maintaining cleanliness of the warehouse one can eliminate pests’ and animals’ food sources which are their sources of attraction. Source: Clean & Hygiene Review

Omkar International

Nouvelle‘ Gastronomique Solutions

Omkar International launches in India a classic and guaranteed food safe line of porcelain tableware manufactured by Kutahya Porselen (Europe), the largest porcelain tableware manufacturer in Europe. As lead and cadmium reduces the melting temperature of raw materials, many manufacturers use lead and cadmium in their production in order to reduce production costs considerably. Responsible manufacturers, use raw materials that does not contain lead and cadmium even though this increases the production costs. Kutahya Porselen guarantee that their complete product line is Lead and Cadmium free thus using acidic foods on tableware will not leach cadmium from the plates into the food. Microwaving foods using Kutahya tableware do not cause Lead absorption into the food. It uses Lead and Cadmium free raw materials keeping in mind the international food safety standards. According to US Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, eating food or water with high levels of cadmium, severely irritates to stomach and leads to vomiting and diarrhea. Long-term exposure of cadmium in the food and water can lead to kidney disease, lung damage and fragile bones. Eating foods with an acid base such as: tomato sauce, pickle juice, orange juice, apples, soy sauce and salad dressing, cause lead and cadmium to leach from the plates and into food. Unsafe lead concentrations are found in some chinaware after microwave use and this could result in the igestion of large amounts of lead. Automatic dishwashers can damage glazed surface of chinaware, causing lead to be leached. The heat and intensity of the water hitting the plates can cause the glaze to deteriorate off of chinaware.

Kutahya Porselen products are microwave safe, ovenproof, dishwasher safe, edge chipping resistant, resistant to cuts and scratches. All products manufactured are in conformity with European Standards and US Standards.

Till a few years back, hotels – in the business of selling sleep – paid scant attention to their beds. Executives from the hotel spent a year developing a new bed for their Westin hotel chain. They began the process by filling a hotel ballroom with 50 beds from 35 hotel chains – representing all the major chains plus luxury and boutique hotels around the world. Their mission was to build the best bed in the hotel industry. After months of testing hundreds of mattresses, pillows and bed linens, they created a stylish and plush, all white bed called ‘The Heavenly Bed’. Since then they have spent nearly US $ 30 Million to put 52000 new beds in the

Westin Hotel chain in the USA. Starwood was then among a small but elite group of hoteliers who recognized the value of comfortable bedding and a good nights sleep. Since then Four Seasons, Marriott, Hilton among others has focused on providing their own customized version of a luxurious Bed to their guests. Simmons – the company manufacturing the Heavenly Bed has been a name strongly associated with sleep all over the world. The company was established in 1870 in the USA and by 1920, introduced the world’s first independent Pocketed Coil Mattress and transformed the way the world slept. Today, Simmons is the world’s number one name in

bedding – with over US $1 billion in sales and is known in more than 70 million households across 120 countries and it still continues to grow. Simmons’s invented the Pocket Coil which provides unmatched stability that eliminates the transfer of movement from one sleeping partner to the other- which means undisturbed sleep even if your partner is tossing & turning around. Simmons is currently being used at the Ritz Carlton, Regent, Raffles, Shangri La, Hilton, Westin, Sheraton, Intercontinental, Hyatt and other fine properties around the world. Simmons has joined hands with India’s own high end bedding manufacturer -Snoozer Bedding to supply Simmons Beautyrest beds & mattresses from their plants in South East Asia.

Geared for Comprehensive Laundry Needs


huge commercial laundry plant endowed with tunnel laundry facility is coming up in Bhiwadi, Rajasthan. It is expected to be operational by November 2013. CLPPL is a Private Limited company incorporated on 18 th November 2011 with the primary objective of catering to the linen and garment cleaning requirements of hotels and general public. CLPPL has envisaged to set up this commercial laundry at RIICO Industrial Area, Pathredi, Bhiwadi, Rajasthan. The company has already acquired 1.52 acre land for setting up this commercial laundry plant. Central Linen Park Private Limited

(CLPPL) has tied up with Supershine Laundry Systems Private Limited for successful implementation of the project.Here it deserves a mention that Supershine Laundry Systems Private Limited is a leading turn-key laundry solutions provider in the country with its scope encompassing project planning & assessment, supply of laundry equipments and other allied equipments, installation and commissioning of laundry and other allied equipments, laundry operations and after sales service support. “Supershine Laundry Systems has vast experience in executing similar projects like the above-mentioned one and has executed 400 such laundry projects

in India till date. We are confident that Supershine will be able to effectively execute the supply, installation, commissioning and the after sales service aspect of this project,” informed Karan Goyal, Vice President, Central Linen Park Private Limited. This forthcoming impressive facility at the industrial hub will not only be targeted at meeting the comprehensive laundry needs of the five-star and four-star hospitality properties across Delhi-NCR and Jaipur, but would also holistically address the retail laundry needs. The retail services will be provided by CLPPL’s retail arm named Wonderkleen. From room linen, staff

uniforms of hotels, and F&B linen to shirts, trousers, coats, jackets, sarees, suits, etc. the forthcoming unit will cover a huge range of laundry products under its ambit. The services that would be provided at the laundry will include washing, drying, dry cleaning, and ironing. The laundry operations of this commercial laundry unit will be able to clean all kinds of linen, garments and clothes. “This huge facility is geared to adapt to linen/garment processing demand variations,” pointed out Goyal. The annual capacity of the plant will be 13,870 tonnes, which is amazingly high as compared to the capacity of average laundries in hotels and hospitals or in usual commercial laundries. The daily installed capacity of the laundry unit comes to an astonishing 38 tonnes per day. The facility will be endowed with worldrenowned imported laundry equipment brands like Milnor(USA) and Jensen(Denmark), use best of the laundry detergents, and have impeccable support structure in accordance with international standards. Moreover, the plant spruced with tunnel laundry facility will also be handled by a management and operations team with years of enriching professional experience. Logistics to match expected delivery schedule, and competitive pricing would be other hallmarks of this forthcoming commercial laundry unit. This commercial laundry plant on the anvil is expected to effectively counter the opportunity cost of in-house laundry operations, both in terms of space and human resources. Today, outsourcing of laundry operations by hotels and hospitals is gaining currency as it helps save costs and facilitate to focus the units more effectively on generating revenues. We can easily visualise that outsourcing of laundry operations to a stateof-the-art laundry facility that can easily match and even exceed the expectations of laundry services of five-star properties, can enable the given hotel to better and more creatively focus on critical revenue generating challenges like that of selling rooms or better positioning its F&B options. “Besides, the real estate dedicated to inhouse laundry service can be better utilised by the hotel for revenue generating initiatives such as banqueting options, dining restaurant/s or can be even used for developing more rooms, if a state-of-the-art outsourced laundry operations is available at affordable rates, not very far from the given hospitality property. Moreover, outsourcing of laundry needs can improve linen utilisation rates by reducing the average linen per adjusted guest room,” explained Goyal. Besides outsourcing of the noncritical tasks like laundry operations can reduce the costs of having an FTE on board. On the expansion plans of this laundry unit, Goyal sounded extremely enthusiastic. He informed that CLPPL is planning to expand its presence aggressively, and over the next five years, the company is envisaging to open laundry units in Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai and Hyderabad. “It is aiming to be a 100 crore company in the ensuing five years,” aired Goyal. CLPPL would diversify into linen hiring concept as well in the future.

Anti-Bacterial Mattress Coirfoam India P. Ltd. It feels great when your guests wake up feeling more dynamic, more active and more lively. That’s why Corfom mattresses have been designed and perfected to give your guests a more rejuvenating sleep. CORFOM mattresses keep sleep environment more hygienic because of the collaboration with Amicor. AMICOR is an innovative layer of latest intelligent fibre, which prevents allergens and provides the most hygienic sleep environment. It is not a coating but a permanent layer which w o r k s through the entire life of the mattress. Not only it increases the life of the mattress, but also provides healthier sleep environment for guests, especially for kids, senior citizens, for people with known allergy to bacteria & dust mites. After falling asleep, we shed skin flakes into the bed and pillow. The warmth and humidity inside our beds encourage a micro fungus to turn these flakes into a food source for mites. By preventing the fungus, the mites cannot eat our skin and have to go elsewhere to find food. Amicor layer works as a preventive barrier. It is gentle and does not kill, but mites simply cannot thrive inside Amicor Pure bedding. Top names such as The Leela, Taj, Radisson, Neemrana Hotels in the luxury hospitality industry choose CORFOM for the long and proven experience we have in producing customised mattress.
