Pink Helps to Protect People and Children

Detectamet’s new pink coloured detectable products will now be used to help a charity helping children diagnosed with cancer and their families. With the pink Detectamet now has a choice of 9 colours for incorporation in HACCP management systems.

York, United Kingdom, September 13, 2014 --( Customers of Detectamet have for a number of years been able to pick many metal detectable products from a range of eight colours. They are a very effective aid to the reduction of cross contamination when colours are used to signify a special purpose or provide a recognisable departmental demarcation.

“We have worked for some time on a ninth colour” said CEO Sean Smith “There are parts of the world where some colours are traditionally not popular and other areas where a different set is preferred.”

Detectamet didn’t just think pink. “It selected itself” Sean explained. “We already have eight strong primary colours so we needed a shade that would be different enough when compared to the others and pink worked well.”

Pink is also synonymous with cancer charities.

“It was an easy step to make our pink also work for them,” said MD Angela Musson. “We decided that we would give a tenth of total earnings of Pink Products to a special cancer charity in our area.”

The company will support the charity Candlelighters. This charity is based in Yorkshire and run by parents of children who have been diagnosed with cancer. As they explain on their website: Candlelighters dot org dot uk.

When a child is diagnosed with cancer, lives are turned upside down in an instant. Not just for the child but for their parents, siblings, family and friends. Priorities change and everyday concerns suddenly seem trivial. Getting well again can be a long and challenging journey, physically, emotionally and financially. Helping and supporting those children and their families is why Candlelighters was formed more than 40 years ago and it is why we are still here today.

“Our customers will know when they order ‘something-in-pink’ that they are not only protecting their business from contamination they will also be assisting families worthy of help,” Angela concluded.
