‘Beware of low-cost solutions’ warns CHSA

The rising cost of raw materials and energy is creating the perfect opportunity for unscrupulous providers of cleaning and hygiene products warns the CHSA, which is encouraging purchasers to look for the CHSA Accreditation Mark to guarantee quality.

“Buyers of cleaning and hygiene products need to beware providers offering low-cost solutions,” said Lorcan Mekitarian, chair of the Cleaning & Hygiene Suppliers Association (CHSA). “Against the backdrop of the escalating cost of raw materials and energy, those reducing prices are likely to be cutting corners. The only way buyers can guarantee what they pay for is to look for the CHSA Accreditation Scheme mark.”

The CHSA now has six Accreditation Schemes: for manufacturers of paper-based products, plastic-based products, cotton-based products, and cleaning chemicals, for general manufacturers, and for distributors. These, combined with the association’s rigorous code of practice signed by every member, guarantees CHSA members trade ethically and sustainably; provide quality, fit for purpose products; and make sure that ‘what’s on the box is what’s in the box’.
