Dishing the dirt on dirty dishes

Raising productivity with centralised processes

The new service can handle all manner of tableware, ranging from plates and utensils, to bento boxes and claypots. Operated by GreatSolutions, the 900 sq.ft facility is located in Basement 3 of Terminal 3.  The service currently comprises four semi-automated dishwashing lines and includes a separate line for crockery from halal-certified outlets. Each line is manned by four workers who ensure the soiled crockery goes through a meticulous cleaning process in an industrial scale automated dishwashing machine. The clean crockery will then be quality checked, tagged and stacked before being sent to the restaurant’s doorstep. At the same time, the delivery team will pick up soiled crockery and head straight back to the facility, ensuring a quick 90-minute turnaround time frame.
