When they came across the Granuldisk ware washing solutions from Nor:disk and heard about all the sustainability benefits they didn’t hesitate to invest.

Prior to the installation, a case study was agreed to be done, and the water consumption in the wash area was measured before and after the Granule Smart was installed.

Nor:disk’s high-performing granule cleaning solutions have significantly reduced downtime by 50% spent on washing, which allows us to focus on preparing delicious dishes for our happy customers.
