Four Ecolab Announcements from the 2018 National Restaurant Association Show

May 22, 2018

Ecolab had a lot to talk about at this year’s National Restaurant Association Show, an annual event for restaurateurs to learn new ways to grow their business.

During the show, Ecolab introduced new research and several digital innovations that use advanced data and analytics to help restauranteurs operate more efficiently:

  1. Restaurateurs can more easily deliver a great customer experience while reducing labor, water and energy costs thanks to Ecolab’s new SMARTPOWER Program. SMARTPOWER is a complete warewashing program that combines patented chemistry, digital monitoring of warewashing performance and expert service to reduce daily dish rack counts by an average of 10 percent.
  2. Ecolab’s new Health Department Intelligence (HDI) platform helps foodservice operators better understand their health inspection results, improve health inspection performance and manage food safety risks. The Ecolab HDI platform automatically collects local health department inspections –which can often vary in form and content from department to department – and uses an advanced algorithm to produce helpful insights such as potential health department violations that can be avoided.
  3. Fruit flies are more than annoyances – they’re also guilty of spreading foodborne illnesses like E. coli, Salmonella and Listeria. This finding was a result of a recent study by scientists at Ecolab and underscores the need for food handling facilities to work with a reputable pest management partner, like Ecolab, to minimize this risk.
  4. The company also hosted the 16th annual Ecolab Chairman’s Reception during the show, which brought together more than 750 industry leaders to raise more than $200,000 for the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation’s (NRAEF) ProStart® program, a nationwide, two-year high school program that unites the classroom and industry to develop the best and brightest talent into tomorrow’s restaurant and foodservice leaders. The Ecolab Chairman’s Reception has raised more than $1.9 million for the NRAEF and ProStart program since 2003.
