Commercial Dishwashing

Helping Food Service Industries Choose the Best Tableware Through Accelerated Testing

Commercial Dishwashing: The Business Challenge

Decisions on which line of tableware to purchase for an establishment should be based not only on appearance and safety, but on performance as well. When multiple supplier choices abound, how do you determine the best choice? It becomes critical to discover how well the tableware will withstand the rigors of multiple wash cycles per day prior to actual repeated use by guests. It is also economical for hoteliers, restaurateurs and suppliers to select products that meet global regulatory and government standards and provide diners with quality products that create a good brand image.

Commercial Dishwashing: Frequently Asked Questions

  • How long can I expect my tableware to last? Will they retain their appearance after years of use?

    With our cycling process, Bureau Veritas can simulate years of dishwashing wear within a course of weeks. This will allow you to view the condition of your dishes over a length of time and determine their appearance and durability. Our process will demonstrate the aging condition of the tableware after a period of one year, five years, or however many years you choose.

  • How do I know which vendor is likely to provide the best value?

    Through a commercial dishwashing comparison study, Bureau Veritas can evaluate performance of competing vendors, and rank their products based on your most important criteria. We work with you in determining what that criteria should be, and develop a test plan that best meets your needs.
