Cascades Tissue partners with Global Food Safety Resource Centre

February 14, 2012

CANADIAC, QUEBEC — Cascades Tissue Group is proud to announce the beginning of a partnership with the Global Food Safety Resource Centre (GFSR) to promote the Cascades Antibacterial Hand Towel, according to a press release.

Food companies employ standard best practices for hand hygiene, but human behavior is subject to variability that can impact results, the release stated.

According to the release, a U.S. study shows that only 32 percent of agri-food industry workers wash their hands properly, and that nearly 80 percent of common infectious diseases, such as the flu or cold, are spread through hand contact.

Through their partnership, GFSR and Cascades share a common mandate of informing the global food community of new ways to minimize food safety risks, sharing innovation through safety and communication, the release noted.
