As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, supermarkets are still open to facilitate consumers who need to purchase items of necessity for their everyday lives. Supermarkets have to ensure their customers of safety, and Central Food Hall, Thailand’s leading food store, recognizes the importance of this. Therefore, it has implemented a new innovation to ensure its employees and customers of safety, with the launch of UV-C Disinfection Robots.
Central Food Hall is the first supermarket to implement disinfection robots, researched and certified by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC). The robots will help disinfect the store and reduce the spread of COVID-19. The robots, operated by staff, are now used at Central Food Hall Central Chidlom as the first location, during non-opening hours. There are plans to introduce the UV-C Disinfection Robots at other Tops Market and Central Food Hall branches to ensure another level of safety for its employees and customers.
