The recent revelations on contaminated ice by BBC Watchdog sparked a renewed focus on the importance of clean hands, sanitized tools and regular ice machine maintenance.
Because Hoshizaki dispensers put the ice directly into a glass or container, there’s no human contact. The units also avoid the problem of airborne bacteria entering the interior of the ice makers as the ice moves directly to the storage hopper the instant it is made, so has no contact with light or air until it is dispensed.
Hoshizaki has extended its naturally refrigerated Emerald Class of icemakers, with 17 models across both IM (cube) and FM (flake) machines now available in the UK.
The hydrocarbon used in Hoshizaki machines is an environmentally sustainable natural compound made up of hydrogen and carbon produced by decomposed organic matter, with zero effect on ozone and negligible GWP.
