deSter donates cutlery to hospital

Specialist packaging and serviceware business, deSter has donated over 12,000 packs of disposable cutlery to the Fiera Milano Hospital in the Covid-19 stricken Milan area.

The donation will allow the hospital’s volunteers and employees to consume their meals in complete safety as all are hygienically packaged and disposed of afterwards. Each pack contains a knife, fork, spoon, condiments and a napkin.

“We received this request through one of our customers and immediately decided to participate and provide the hospital with some much-needed aid. Given the horrid nature of the COVID-19 virus, the safest way by far for hospital workers and patients to consume a meal is to dispose of all food service equipment after use. Every little bit counts in beating this” explains Gary Hickman, VP Foodservice deSter.
