A seasoned expert in hygiene and food safety, Bana Kalash Kobrosly is general manager of Rentokil Boecker Lebanon. Here, she shares the firm’s latest news and expansion plans.

What exciting news can you share with us?
Firstly, we developed and expanded our food safety systems and training courses. Our experienced food safety consultants help implement proper food safety guidelines and give the right certification to ensure export expansion and compliance in a timely and efficient manner.
Furthermore, our smart and eco-friendly mosquito traps for gardens and indoors are top sellers due to their effectiveness.

With hygiene now integral to hospitality and travel, how is this translating into your line of business?
It may have taken a global pandemic to shed light on the dangers of indoor air pollution and the role it plays in the spread of airborne viruses, but the truth is that the quality of indoor air, even in our homes, has been in a state of crisis for decades. People and businesses are now more aware, so they are more demanding when it comes to what they expect from the hospitality sector.
As we spend approximately 90 percent of our time indoors, we have introduced two new solutions:
VORTEX, our AC ducts cleaning and disinfecting treatment, and VIRUSKILLER™, the world’s leading indoor air-safety technology. This technology uses a unique combination of medical-grade pre-filters and a UV reactor chamber to deliver clean air. VIRUSKILLER™ units are standalone, plug-and-play devices that are perfectly suited to rooms of various size.

Do you have any plans for expansion?
Expansion opportunities are now greater for our company, as product diversification has paved the way for easier market penetration.
