If your goal is to provide a world-class service, one of the things you must pay attention to achieve that goal is hygiene! It is very important for us that the enterprises in Beşiktaş serve within the rules of hygiene. We conduct regular inspections on this issue. We have cooperated with Eczacıbaşı Professional, the leader in the industry, in order to improve the conditions of our enterprises further. As a result of our works, Çırağan Palace Kempinski Istanbul was awarded the Certificate of “Excellence in Hygiene” by passing all trainings and inspections.

Çırağan Palace Kempinski Istanbul is selected ‘‘Excellent in Hygiene”
Stating that the top factor for consumers when choosing a certain enterprise is hygiene, Eczacıbaşı Profesyonel General Manager Melike Koçoğlu said, “According to the results of the researches we have done, ‘hygiene’ is the first criteria that 68 percent of the consumers look for when they choose a restaurant. Inspection of the hygiene standards of a hotel at regular intervals and sharing the results of this inspection with the customers staying at the hotel is quite effective on hotel choices of 70 percent of the customers. To ensure customer loyalty and continuity, hygiene must be a priority for businesses. Based on our research, we planned the “Excellence in Hygiene” project a year ago in order to benefit the enterprises and increase the end-user satisfaction. As Eczacıbaşı Profesyonel, we aim to increase the satisfaction of consumers by keeping the hygiene levels of enterprises at the highest standards. Stating that Çırağan Palace Kempinski Istanbul carried out the “Excellence in Hygiene” program with the cooperation of Beşiktaş Municipality, Koçoğlu said, “Today, we are happy to present the first certificate of our project in Beşiktaş.
