The new Biomaster Antimicrobial Pouch 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 such as 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 pouch bag helps to inhibit the growth of these bacteria by up to 99.9% and as it can be packed away, you'll never forget to take your bags to the supermarket again.

Where to buy

You can buy the Biomaster protected pouch bags through Marks & Spencer, remember to look for the Biomaster protected logo.

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