Beko’s first-of-its kind household product line eliminates more than 99% of bacteria and viruses

Today saw Beko launch its new HygieneShield™ range at a global virtual press conference. A ground-breaking portfolio of household products created in response to emerging needs in the post-lockdown era.

The new portfolio includes seven appliances with in-built disinfection programmes and functions to disinfect packaged food and belongings to help people adjust to the ‘new normal’ at home. Developed as a result of in-depth global consumer research and with innovative new technology, the HygieneShield™ product line has the power to kill more than 99% of bacteria and viruses (including coronavirus), providing a level of reassurance unrivalled in the market place.

Beko research, across 31 countries revealed that one of the primary concerns is hygiene. Many of us are disinfecting supermarket purchases when we get home, worrying about handling mobile phones and keys, or not bringing coats into the house. People have increased the amount of cleaning and laundry in their homes, with some disinfecting bedding for the first time. 75% of people are cleaning the house more often, 64% are doing more laundry and 68% are paying more attention to the cleanliness of the packaging on purchased products.

The new HygieneShield™ range takes inspiration from nature and uses methods such as steam and heat to enable you to achieve excellent hygiene results at home. It will be available to buy from December 2020.
