The Accommodation Department of the D Y Patil School of Hospitality and Tourism studies organised a workshop on 27 February 2018, for their students who are undergoing a specialization in the housekeeping department in association with the Mblem Hygiene Solutions – a leading Manufacturer & Supplier for cleaning solutions from Pune, Maharashtra, India.
The two hour workshop demonstrated the importance of using green and organic chemicals along with the importance of Workplace hygiene and Kitchen Sanitation. Since the students would shortly join the industry and get exposed to the ever growing and demanding health and sanitation requirements of the demanding hospitality organizations, being a part of this workshop helped them to get one step closer to their aspirations.
The students learned the reasons why the industry is inclining towards the usage of eco friendly products in cleaning solutions. The advantages of going green and the extent of damage to the surfaces caused by toxic chemicals was positively explained by Mr. Shekhar Lokahnde who is a chemical engineer by profession but with his passion to become a leading entrepreneur handles the sales and marketing division of the Mblem Chemicals brand. He also explained the students his journey of becoming an entrepreneur and stating a business of chemical production which faced rejection at the initial stages and was not openly welcomed by the industry. But with its passion in innovation is going to be amongst the top in the business brands and giving a tough competitions to the monopolies in the market.
This session was also attended by the housekeeping and kitchen support staff of the college and they also benefited immensely and also learned a lot from the workshop.
