NICHE OFFER LAB SERVICES THAT YOU CAN TRUST

NicheSolutions are working with two of the best labs in the UK for our Gluten testing and full chemical beer testing. Our lab services are 100 per cent reliable, competitively priced, and fast growing in popularity among breweries of all sizes.

Five Point Plan and Microbiological Analysis

Quality assurance is vital to the success of any brewery. Brewlab and Niche Solutions can assist small and large breweries to brew to specification more accurately and demonstrate they comply to essential regulatory declarations.

Brewlab’s analysis services provide assurance and development for breweries seeking to manage consistency and evaluate prospects for future products. Quality assurance is provided by our routine analyses of standard brewing parameters – alcohol by volume, specific gravities, colour, pH and bitterness – each of which provides critical data on brewing performance. This data can also flag any microbiological issues before they take full effect. Brewlab’s expert lab team can use the results to provide feedback and make recommendations.

Gluten Testing in Beer

Breweries are increasingly adding gluten-free options to their range so that everyone who requires a gluten free diet can consume their products.

Both SYNLAB and Niche Solutions can assist small and large breweries in meeting your free-from gluten claim. SYNLAB’s aim is to protect your process, secure your supply chain and safeguard your brand. SYNLAB is a unique, market-leading consultancy and analytical laboratory testing service that provides reassurance and security to the food and drink industry. SYNLAB’s dedicated technical team offer the recommended method for gluten analysis in beer to demonstrate that your product is gluten-free. SYNLAB’s UKAS accredited method is unique as it can quantify
peptide fragments from wheat, rye and barley.

SANITISER STATIONS’ SUCCESS HAILED BY NORTHAMPTONSHIRE MEDIA

First came the success of Niche’s high-capacity non-touch sanitiser gel units at Silverstone, at West Ham United’s London Stadium and Kings Lynn Town FC, helping fans return to sporting events nationwide.

And now the units’ installation at Northampton Town FC this weekend has been met with unanimous enthusiasm by fans, by the club and local media alike – making news in the Chronicle & Echo and on BBC Radio Northampton.

Speaking as the guest of John Griff on BBC Radio Northampton’s ever-popular Saturday Breakfast Show, Niche MD Paul Calcott said:

“A thousand fans will be attending the big match this afternoon. They’ll see the flags inviting them to ‘sanitise your hands’ at our stations which have been produced with full Cobblers branding.

“The 20-litre units provide over 7,000 shots of alcohol or non-alcohol-based sanitiser gel. This makes them perfect for keeping fans safe on their return to large-scale events and attractions.

“That’s where this unit comes into its own, providing sanitiser where there’s high footfall. As well as sporting stadia and amateur sports clubs, we’re also talking to London Underground, to shopping malls, leisure facilities and other possible users.”

NICHE PLAYING A PART IN FANS’ SAFE RETURN TO FOOTBALL

NicheSolutions are playing an important part in enabling fans’ safe return to sporting events after their prolonged absence during the worst of the COVID crisis.

So far, West Ham United and Kings Lynn Town have made use of the invaluable units, with our local club Northampton Town set to follow this weekend – Northamptonshire’s own Silverstone circuit having used our sanitiser stands earlier this year at the British Grand Prix

Our 20-litre non-touch sanitation stations are made from food-grade stainless steel can be filled with alcohol or non-alcohol hand gel – with each station supplying over 7,000 shots of sanitising gel.

We supplied two custom-branded 20-litre sanitation stations to West Ham United FC, which helped the Premier League club welcome 2,000 fans to its recent game against Manchester United.

Last weekend, NicheSolutions’ sanitation stations were at the Kings Lynn Town ground, enabling the Conference Premier outfit to play Torquay United before a crowd of 625.

And earlier this year, the company’s sanitation stations were installed at Silverstone to serve the press room, pit teams, on-site medics and other staff present at the British Grand Prix.

As fans slowly return to sport, NicheSolutions MD Paul Calcott is hoping more clubs will now be attracted by the sanitiser stands’ track record of efficiency, safety and eco-friendliness.

“Hand cleaning and sanitisation is more important than ever right now,” Mr Calcott said. “Having the sanitiser stations at sporting events means that returning fans can keep themselves safe.

“One alternative is individual sanitisation bottles, which are often not recyclable. Here, we remove the need for small individual packaging, keeping everyone safe and sanitised in an environmentally friendly manner.

“Smaller sanitisation stands often utilise a 750ml tank, only really viable for use by between 20-30 people before running out of sanitising gel. But here we have a station that can produce over 7,000 shots of alcohol gel, eliminating the need for regular product replacement within the unit itself.”

NEW HIGH-CAPACITY SANITISER STATION INSTALLED BY WEST HAM WOMEN

A new non-touch sanitation station donated by sponsors NicheSolutions has been installed at the training ground of West Ham United Women. Please click here to visit the NS Solutions website for more information.

The unit, which eliminates the need for individual sanitisation bottles, is built of food-grade stainless steel and can hold up to 8,000 shots of alcohol sanitising gel, which is supplied from a 20-litre KeyKeg. The front has been engraved with the Hammers’ crest, which celebrates the Club’s 125 years.

WHUW Managing Director Jack Sullivan has thanked NicheSolutions Managing Director Paul Calcott for his donation. He said: “The most important thing is that we want to make sure everyone feels safe when they come to our training ground or our matches. That goes for players, staff, coaches, and supporters alike.”

Having provided West Ham United with smaller sanitisation units for use across the Club’s training ground and stadiums earlier this year, Paul Calcott was delighted to launch the new stand with the women’s team at Chadwell Heath.

He said: “Previously, we had an alcohol sanitisation stand that we launched at the beginning of the global coronavirus pandemic, which utilised a 750ml tank, but was only really viable for use by between 20-30 people before running out of sanitisation gel.”

With the sanitisation station holding the equivalent of 10,000 mini-bottles, OneCircle’s (the producer of KeyKeg and UniKeg) Natalie Maestri believes the environmentally friendly aspect of the unit is an added incentive.

She said: “Replacing with circular bulk packaging is so crucially important because, with more and more people rightly conscious of their hygiene, we’re seeing this packaging disposed of in the wrong manner.”

THE HYDROFOAMER – YOUR BEST OPTION FOR CLEANING, RINSING & SANITISING

For the vital job of cleaning, rinsing and sanitising your brewery and kit, the HydroFoamer gun can help you achieve maximum performance from your cleaning products – saving you time, effort and money.

The HydroFoamer’s unique injection system automatically mixes the proper amount of concentrate with both air and water to produce a thick, rich foam for longer soak time. It’s far safer than other cleaning methods.

And coupled with our special-offer 30-metre hose, the HydroFoamer is completely portable, easy to use in every area of the brewery.

Here’s just one example of our positive customer feedback – this from Attic Brew Co.: “The HydroFoamer has made cleaning the outside of the vessels incredibly quick and easy, which is especially important for our taproom. The tanks come out spotless and it’s even good at lifting stubborn material from hard-to-clean areas such as around the feet.”

The HydroFoamer offers convenient control of where and how the solution is applied. On and off functions are at your fingertips, trigger-controlled on the spray nozzle. To rinse, the concentrate container is disconnected using an easy-to-operate quick coupler, designed to allow either a full-width spray or powerful jet stream while rinsing.

– The foamer is built with Hydro’s proven, reliable components; years of use in the field provide proof of durability
– It’s compact and easy to store
– Offers increased productivity
– Reduced exposure to concentrates enhances safety
– Non-electric, no installation required; simply fill the concentrate container and connect the dispenser to a water source
