There’s been a machinery revolution in recent times, with a focus on energy costs, sustainability…
Biovate Hygienics have scooped three highly coveted awards and have also been listed as one of Europe’s most sustainable companies in a competition.
Co-Founders Nick Winstone, an experienced biological cleaning entrepreneur and Tom Burkill, a serial entrepreneur, set up the company with a vision of sustainable innovation and positive disruption.
Winstone says: “As Biovate Hygienics only launched last year these achievements are wonderful for team morale and assisting us in our drive to become the country’s ‘go to’ brand for sustainable and carbon neutral cleaning products”.
Its ‘Zero Compromise’ range represents a ‘world first’ for the commercial cleaning sector by being a nature powered product packaged in plastic-free paper bottles. The products are multi-tasking, taking care of 99 per cent of cleaning tasks and use naturally derived bacteria, enzymes and plant-based actives for their primary cleaning power.
The UK-made plastic-free bottle uses sustainably sourced vegetable waste fibre paper pulp with an interior bio liner made from plant sap latex preventing contact with Biovate’s products. The bottle’s screw neck and cap are made of Moso Bamboo, that can also be recycled.
Biovate Hygienics was thrilled to see the groundbreaking range named as ‘Innovative Product of the Year’ at the Cleaning Excellence Awards at Coventry Building Society Arena, organised by Western Business Media. The event was co-located with the British Institute of Cleaning Science.
In October the company achieved the accolade of ‘Start-up Business of Year’ at the European Cleaning and Hygiene Awards held in Dublin.
Last month the founders were at the House of Commons to receive a Gold Winner Green Apple Environment Award in the Sustainable Development sector (Service Industries: Carbon Reduction category). The Green Apple Awards are run by The Green Organisation – an independent, international, non-political, non-profit environment group dedicated to recognising, rewarding and promoting environmental best practice around the world.
Now the company – based near Towcester, Northamptonshire – is hoping the winning streak runs into 2024 as its Zero Compromise range is a shortlisted finalist at both the Tomorrow’s Cleaning Awards and Tomorrow’s FM Awards in March.
