SC Johnson Professional, a total solutions provider for industrial, institutional and healthcare users, last week announced that it will be the sole cleaning sponsor for the ninth annual World Food Championships (WFC) taking place Nov. 5-9, in Dallas. As the official “clean team” for the event, SC Johnson Professional will lead the turnover of 40 chef stations between cooking rounds in the event’s kitchen arena. 

“We are thrilled to partner with the WFC to keep the cooking areas clean and degreased throughout this exciting event,” says Mike Flagg, CEO of SC Johnson Professional North America. “Beyond providing our products, we are providing on-site support during the event to help ensure kitchen areas are cleaned and sanitized thoroughly. Use of our trusted products will help provide contestants and judges peace of mind that all stations are cleaned effectively.”

The chef stations will be cleaned by SC Johnson Professional trained team members using fantastik MAX Oven & Grill Cleaner. SC Johnson Professional will also provide AgroBac PURE FOAM Wash, which is formulated specifically for food handling environments, to promote good hand hygiene throughout the event. Additionally, SC Johnson Professional’s Instant FOAM Complete hand sanitizer will be available for attendees throughout the conference center.

“With numerous trusted brands and products, we are excited to welcome SC Johnson Professional to the WFC this year,” says Mike McCloud, President and CEO of WFC. “Having them on our team to assist with making sure our event is operating efficiently and effectively during the world’s largest ‘food fight’ is a fantastic addition to our Food Sport roster.”

The WFC, known as the “Ultimate Food Fight,” hosts hundreds of amateur and professional cook teams to compete for a chance at winning the ultimate food crown.
