Ecolab recently launched the Ecolab Science Certified Program, which combines advanced chemistry with new public health training and audit verification. The campaign to support this launch, delivered by WPP, will demonstrate to consumers that businesses sanitized by Ecolab will be as safe as possible and will ensure that its clients’ brands stand out as holding a higher standard of cleanliness for food safety and public health.
