NEW YORK - In an effort to support grocers during the pandemic, Syfel Inc., a producer of reusable bags, has created an extra measure to keep staff and customers safe with antimicrobial reusable shopping bags and boxes. 

Syfel is the first North American supplier of reusable shopping bags that have an integrated antimicrobial technology, according to the company. The technology inhibits the growth of bacteria, molds and fungi and can be used on any fabric. This new material has been tested to ISO standards and is recognized as FDA-compliant.  

Because the new bags and boxes inhibit the growth of microbes by 99.99%, users can be assured that in the event of food leakage, the antimicrobial properties protect them from foodborne illnesses.
