Metro Inc. is the latest grocer to adopt grocery cart cleaning technology and has introduced it at one of its Ontario stores in Burlington. Last year, B.C.’s Quality Foods introduced similar technology at all of its stores on Vancouver Island.
Metro Inc is using Pure Portal technology from TCM, which fully sanitizes carts automatically after being pushed into the unit.
Quality Foods is using similar technology with UV light that it introduced in its stores last November. Both technologies disinfect for many viruses, including COVID-19.
“With a focus on creating the safest environment for our employees and customers - we introduced The Clean Cart, with FAR-UV Technology to offer customers a self-service sanitization system in every Quality Foods store,” says Noel Hayward, president, Quality Foods.
