About London Catering & Hygiene Solutions
Founded in 1977 as Malsar Kest, London Catering & Hygiene Solutions Ltd are one of London and the South East’s premier non-food catering supply and packaging distributors.
For over forty years, London Catering & Hygiene Solutions has offered an extensive range of catering and hygiene solutions to customers ranging from restaurants and bars to sports stadia, hospitals, schools and colleges.
We work with a specially selected list of brand manufacturers to supply a wide product range including disposable food packaging, china and glassware, kitchen and cookware, barware and tableware, catering equipment and hygiene supplies.
London Catering & Hygiene Solutions are a founding member of the Foodservice Packaging Association, which aims to promote the interests of manufacturers, distributors and buyers of disposable food packaging. The FPA works to encourage the use of catering disposables and takeaway packaging by actively promoting the development of new products with respect to reducing food waste, improving safety and hygiene, convenience, economy and environmental and sustainability issues.
The company is a long standing member of the CHSA - The Cleaning and Hygiene Suppliers Association - bringing together and representing more than 200 manufacturers and distributors from the cleaning and hygiene supply sector throughout the UK. The CHSA works towards raising standards in the industry through a code of practice which all members adhere to, with fully audited Manufacturing Standards Accreditation Schemes for soft tissue products and plastic refuse sacks.
In 2008, London Catering & Hygiene Solutions (then known as Malsar Kest) co-founded The Socius Network - a nationwide suppliers association formed to represent twenty of the most well respected and established independent distributors across the UK supplying non-food consumables such as catering disposables, food packaging, paper hygiene products, cleaning chemicals, glassware, crockery, chef supplies, janitorial products and catering equipment to the UK food service industry.
