Biovate Hygienics launches training academy to champion high standards in cleaning and hygiene


Innovative manufacturer of next generation biological and ecological cleaning products, Biovate Hygienics, has introduced its Biovate Training Academy to encourage industry ‘best practice’ and ensure the correct and safe use of its portfolio of products.

It provides both standard industry COSHH (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health) training and short, sharp videos with the relevant product data in under a minute a product, followed by a short quiz.

Chat support is available for the free courses on an information-packed App linked to the academy with embedded support via WhatsApp and Snapchat.

Learners can brush up on products by studying flashcards and watching training videos hosted by Vimeo. They can also access technical and safety data sheets.

One of the first available courses is in kitchen hygiene and modules include:

– Floor and wall degreaser product training
– Cleaner and sanitiser product training
– How to dispense products safely
– COSHH training

Another course in front of house training is also available with more expected to be rolled out shortly. Training packages also include colour coded wall charts and signage.

Current courses are expertly tailored to the job roles of chefs, back of house and kitchen porters, dishwashers, front of house and waiting staff and housekeepers.

The Biovate Training Academy also features training for the sales team at foodservice wholesale giant Bidfood and Biovate’s other distribution partners with modules in product presentation, sell sheets and product USPs. Biovate Hygienics launched its catering ranges with Bidfood as its national catering distribution partner in July, along with leading regional partners in the South.

Once learners have successfully completed their training – which includes online quizzes – they receive a certificate from Biovate Training Academy.

Biovate Hygienics launched this year with a pledge to become the country’s best sustainable and carbon neutral cleaning product brand. The go-ahead company was co-founded by experienced environmental entrepreneur Nick Winstone with a vision to adopt cutting edge innovation to deliver the next generation of biological cleaning products with the lowest environmental impact packaging.

Based in Towcester, Northants, Biovate Hygienics specialises in providing a service to housekeeping, hospitality, care and general cleaning sectors.

Nick Winstone explained that the training academy has been launched to champion ‘best practice’ in the sector, and with an emphasis on the training being enjoyable.

He said: “The Biovate Training Academy is an ideal platform to develop a real understanding of best practice in cleaning and hygiene.

“We wanted to focus on making the training interactive and user-friendly and, most of all, fun”.
