How PVC Sheet Can Help Struggling Food Businesses

20 Mar 2019

Food businesses are feeling the strain, yet PVC sheet can help them operate more efficiently. In breaking news today, High Street giant M&S has come under pressure to slash its food prices. It is another sign of how retailers are struggling to grow food businesses in an era dominated by the web. M&S will embrace home deliveries from next year, being a relatively late-comer to the ecommerce grocery market.


Away from retail, in the restaurant trade, the statistics are depressing. At least 59 per cent of new food businesses currently fail in the first 3 years. In the first year, failure rates can be as high as 90 per cent. So what is going wrong?

CleanClad says keeping a lid on costs is pivotal, particularly for new restaurant businesses. It is the UK’s top supplier of PVC sheet to food enterprises. Its hygiene solution is designed to make commercial kitchens more efficient while remaining compliant.


A spokesperson for CleanClad said: “Food businesses are struggling to grow because profit margins are low. The best way to move a restaurant forward is to reduce costs to improve profit margins. Extra cash in the bank can allow a new enterprise to invest in its future and grow. Our products aid efficiency but they can also boost branding. We stock PVC sheet in a range of colours. This can be useful, particularly if a new restaurant has aspirations to franchise its concept or wants to connect with customers on a more emotive level.”


How PVC sheet can help restaurants


One of the biggest ways to grow a restaurant business is through excellent hygiene. A top rating from food safety inspectors gives customers confidence to try something new. If they like their experience, they will return and even tell their friends.


CleanClad delivers hygienic PVC sheet to restaurants across the UK. It also operates a nationwide cladding installation service for those who want to ensure a professional finish. While PVC sheet is most commonly used in kitchens, its aesthetic appeal is encouraging more businesses to use pastel and high gloss cladding in public-facing areas.
