SERVING THE INDUSTRY

W

Tania Walters Publisher

ith the year upon year of growth in the retirement village sector, there has been an awakening amongst the service industry to the fresh opportunities offered – from construction down through equipment and even food. While others deal with activities such as health and welfare – critical areas of course - “agedplus” magazine and particularly this Buyers’ Guide concerns itself with the operational and management side of the business. We continue to gather the best of the suppliers giving fresh choices to management and shareholders on just what is available and targeted specifically at this industry. The growing numbers entering villages and care facilities is

continuing at a strong rate so providing a record of services and products available to management is becoming increasingly important. This guide along with our regular magazine are important cogs in the service wheel which we trust are helpful in day to day product sourcing and bring interesting ideas to the market. In these challenging times of COVID-19 we have added a special section into the Guide covering safety protocols and PPE. As 2020 is a year of turmoil with change being an almost daily occurrence we are this year, keeping our digital e-zine of this Guide open to new content to allow for the shifts in the industry as we all deal with the “next normal”. So do come back frequently to see online updates.

cost-conscious and satisfyingly delicious to various caring companies such as Compass, Metlifecare, Uniting Care and Blue Care to name a few. Through improvements in software, processes, plant machinery and engaging with market specialists in Elder Care have enabled us to look at the New Zealand industry in a more planned and less reactive way. We aim to supply the best solutions picked by the client for their sites to improve the living of people in care. We have invested heavily in the establishment of talented food professionals and a technical team; locally and off-shore, to increase our ability to produce the peak of baked solutions in New Zealand.

It was the summer of ’99, when our friend Jimmy who owned a local kebab shop commented he couldn’t find a tortilla wrap that wouldn’t crack or split when rolled. This sparked an idea… We found an old Fish ’n Chip shop that we renovated to become our first bakery. We tried loads of things, but in the end, traditional methods were the way to go! We rolled dough balls and hand-stretched each wrap and tortilla, cooking them on a hot plate over an open flame. In the beginning not everyone believed in us, but with pioneering spirit we packed our bags and headed to Mexico, the home of tortillas to refine our craft! Many tortillas later, we journeyed through the USA to discover the exciting evolution of the wrap. Fast forward a few years, a new, world-class Tortilla Factory in Upper Hutt meant it was time to upgrade to the very best of equipment, while still making sure our wraps were baked the traditional way, over an open flame. Our dedicated range of wraps and tortillas come with our trusted “won’t crack, won’t split when rolled” guarantee. Yeast and dairy free, they come in an assortment of unique and innovative flavours that incorporate the use of real herbs and vegetables. The variety of sizes helps to inspire a variety of usage occasions.

MOCCONA The heritage behind Moccona was born half a world away in the quaint Netherlands village of Joure. In a little grocery store, Egbert Douwes sold Java grown coffee to the locals. With quiet passion, his small enterprise flourished and soon became a tea and coffee emporium. As the instant coffee craze spread across Europe, Douwe Egberts launched the now legendary Moccona brand. New Zealand then took its first shipment of Moccona in its iconic cylindrical glass jar and gold label. Originally sold in delicatessens and small specialty stores, it symbolised the little indulgence from Europe that added to the pleasures of daily existence. Moccona’s reputation for world-class quality saw it become a household name, a favourite among coffee drinkers everywhere and the most indulgent freeze-dried coffee. It’s known for its premium taste and elegant glass jar, making Moccona a much-loved classic all over New Zealand. Loved for its premium taste, Moccona’s special quest is to always ensure we bring you the very best coffee, full in flavour, smooth and rich in aroma. To enjoy a cup of Moccona coffee, please reach out to your distributor or contact JDE NZ customer services for more information on where you can purchase any Moccona product.

WHITELEY MEDICAL Whiteley Medical has the infection control and cleaning solutions required to create a safe and hygienic environment in Aged Care facilities. As we get older, our skin tends to require extra special attention. Both aged care residents and their carers can keep skin soft and hygienic by using a combination of products in Whiteley Medical’s skin care range. Bactol® Antibacterial hand rub contains natural emollients to replenish the skin’s natural lipids which are removed by alcohol, leaving the hands hygienic, soft and replenished. A health problem such as incontinence is a common occurrence amongst older people. Whitley Medical can provide carers with products necessary to clean up after an accident has occurred. Odacon® is a highly efficient deodoriser for incontinence that eliminates a common cause of urine smell by neutralising odour at the source. Used in combination with the Florogen concentrated air freshener range which kills 99.9% of odour causing bacteria, aged care facilities can easily manage odour control. Aged care facilities are often susceptible to outbreaks of dangerous bacteria and viruses. Whiteley Medical has the cleaning and disinfection products required to ensure the health of aged care residents is protected. Viraclean® will clean and disinfect all hard surfaces and kills a broad range of

pathogenic organisms. Recent ground-breaking research conducted by Whiteley Corporation as part of an Australian Research Council Linkage grant with Macquarie University identified that bacteria and other microbes often live in tiny biofilms, on surfaces and objects that are frequently touched within healthcare settings. They ‘hide’ under dry surface biofilms, making current cleaning and disinfecting protocols ineffective. Whiteley Medical launched Surfex® in 2017, which is the world’s first Dry Surface Biofilm Remover and Disinfectant.

NZYME, New Zealand’s leading manufacturer of eco-friendly cleaners, use world leading technology to produce highly effective products that are completely safe for people and the planet. With the world at a tipping point, NZYME have recognised the detrimental effect that harmful chemical run-offs are having on the environment, and aim to disrupt this process by introducing biodegradable cleaning alternatives for domestic and industrial use.

HOW DO ENZYMES WORK? “Enzymes activate and energise ‘good’ bacteria that consume bad bacteria and/ or contaminants at the microbial level,” said head of sales and marketing Guy Burt. “They eat protein and organic matter by feeding and turning the contaminants into water, salts, and CO2. Enzymes cut the bonds that attach atoms together which make up molecules. If the tubes

that attach the atoms are cut, the molecule will no longer exist in its initial state.” Whenever there is a concern with bacterial residue, chemical cleaners – especially disinfectants – do not perform as advertised. All chemical claims are based on a controlled laboratory environment, rather than real-life situations. Environmental conditions can change in an instant, while the testing laboratory maintains waiting for weeks, leading to results which typically do not Bu reflect the reality of day to day y u G applications. “NZYME products are 100 percent effective at biodegrading and emulsifying proteins,” said Burt. “Examples of proteins that we need to be concerned about include mould, bacteria, viruses and insects. All these contaminants are made up of proteins. NZYME does a superior job at breaking their components apart and biodegrading them into carbon and water. It takes only minutes for this biological process to occur.” When used correctly for the appropriate application, NZYME’s family of products has

rt

Procured by nature, NZYME products contain plant-based enzymes combined with natural surfactants and scents. Enzymatic cleaners are powerful and scientifically proven to enhance the cleaning process, resolving problematic issues that harsh chemical cleaners can’t budge, like biofilm that protects harmful bacteria and is the leading cause of strong odours. NZYME are passionate about saving the environment and proud to represent a range of products that are truly nature’s own.

been shown to be just as effective in dealing with cleaning and sanitising challenges from floods and natural disasters, as well as standard day-today industrial and commercial cleaning activities. For optimal results, NZYME suggest a waiting time of less than five minutes of product surface contact for lighter cleaning demands, while a wait time of five to ten minutes is recommended for heavy cleaning. This allows the enzymes the time to biodegrade bacteria and other surface contamination. “Sickness is often attributable to careless cleaning, food processing, and many shortcuts,” Burt advised. “We’ve all been brought up believing that chemical cleaners are necessary and complete.” Historically, this was true, but bacteria and viruses have developed immune resistance to common household cleaners, such as disinfectants and sanitisers. “Read the caution labels – chemical cleaners are harmful to our respiratory systems. NZYME enzymes are food grade and do not damage surfaces nor endanger health. Simply spray, wait a few minutes, and then rinse with a clean damp sponge or, preferably, a microfibre cleaning cloth. The result is a hygienically clean surface that is safe, healthy, and the correct choice in today’s high bacteria environments!” For more information visit www.nzyme.co.nz.

PROPRESS

Propress Fabric Steamers are incredibly effective when it comes to presenting, refreshing and revitalising virtually any fabric. They generate a constant flow of hotter, denser steam, and this is a great advantage when it comes to heavy fabrics, tough folds and creases. The centrally heated boiler provides steam that is fully effective and leaves fabrics hanging perfectly, without a sheen – breathing life back into the fabric. Its non-spit nozzle provides peace of mind for use with lighter-coloured fabrics, and worries over expensive stains. Steam will un-crease and refresh curtains, is suitable to use on thermal backs and fabric blinds, it will sanitise your mattress and sofa, kill bedbugs and their eggs, viruses, bacteria, allergens, mould and mildew plus remove dents and creases in carpets. It's an ideal tool to assist with a quick refresh of rest home rooms between occupancies. Steam is especially good for clothing and apparel. Their versatile Fabric Steamers are used everywhere from rest homes and hospitals, to laundries and hotels, antique and contemporary furniture makers, apparel manufacturers, retailers to luxury yachts, caravans and motor cars, and by curtainmakers, photography studios, carpet fitters, upholsterers, auto trimmers and wig makers. The machine’s stability and its hoses flexibility and performance allows it to be used in the workroom, the drying room, the showroom, and insitu at specific locations,

taking care of the inevitable problems arising with handling fabrics. Steam vapor penetrates surfaces, destroys mould spores, germs, viruses, dust mites, and bacteria (no chemicals needed). Prevent mould and mildew from building up on shower curtains or shower doors. Just pass the steam over the surface of the curtain or door, then wipe any loosened mildew or soap scum. Propress Garment Steamers are suitable for all types of clothing, from fashion and bridal through to vintage, and are safe for use on velvets, silk, linen, wool, cashmere, appliqués, embroidery and even lingerie. Propress steamers are recommended for use by the UK National Trust to treat centuries old fragile vintage fabrics. The steamer’s speed of performance gets garments where they are needed right away – on display or back in the residents’ wardrobes. Many costumiers, theatre and film studio wardrobe departments, as well as celebrities constantly in the public eye, have the perfect solution – a Propress Steamer.
