The new Biomaster antimicrobial cool bag

Since the introduction of the 5p bag tax in England in October 2015 reusable bags have become more and more a part of our shopping trips.

Whilst the move has made a huge difference to the number of single use bags being used – reportedly down by 5 billion – there is an increased risk of cross-contamination of foodborne illnesses from reusing your bags.

Bacteria like Campylobacter and E. coli can transfer from contaminated packaging and loose vegetables to ready to eat food and the rest of your shopping which can pose a risk of food poisoning to you and your family.

The Biomaster protected cool bag helps to inhibit the growth of these bacteria by up to 99.9% and the multilayer inner film helps to keep warm products at a good temperature whilst keeping chilled or frozen goods cold.

Where to buy

You can buy Biomaster protected cool bags in leading supermarkets, remember to look for the Biomaster protected logo.

You can also buy a Biomaster branded cool bag from The Hygiene Doctor webstore.
