Remco Products competed as a finalist in two of seven categories at the 2017 Process Expo’s Innovation Showcase with the new Lobby Dustpan Set, which was developed by a strategic partner. The set won top honor in the Pet Foods category.
Each category had three finalists that were chosen in advance of the Expo by members of each industry’s trade press. At the Expo, each finalist gave a 3-minute product presentation to a panel of food processor judges.
Products were evaluated based on:
- Innovative distinction from other products currently on the market
- Benefit to the industry, processor or consumer
- Disruption to the market status quo
- Practicality of implementation
- Value for the cost
The Lobby Dustpan Set was deemed best in its category for Pet Foods and competed as one of three finalists in the Confectionary/Candy/Sweets category.
“Processors need color-coded tools that are durable, hygienically designed and FDA-compliant,” Remco Products President Mike Garrison said. “The Lobby Dustpan Set has seen a high demand since its debut thanks to its ability to fill these challenging customer needs.”
Remco has been working with the food industry for over 30 years and their long-standing strategic partnerships uniquely position them to provide products that meet the industry’s changing needs. It’s this knowledge that led to past innovations like their hygienic polypropylene shovels, stainless steel scrapers and condensation squeegees.
Remco’s Lobby Dustpan Set is a durable, ergonomically friendly and FDA-compliant solution to standard broom sets. The dustpan has no hard edges or witness lines that could trap food residue or bacteria and can be easily disassembled and reassembled for regular washing and sanitizing. The large, 7×14 inch bin allows for big and small cleanup jobs, while the tall, 37-inch handle alleviates back pain that stems for leaning over shorter dustpans. The lobby dustpan was created with food processors and food service workers in mind.
