CINCINNATI, March 09, 2022 – Understanding the bar for cleaning has been raised, and more and more patrons are reentering their favorite restaurants with higher expectations on cleaning from brands they know and trust, P&G Professional, the away-from-home division of the Procter & Gamble Company, relaunched its Dawn® Professional portfolio, featuring new and improved formulas of well-known and trusted brands.

With over one million vacant roles in the hospitality industry as of December 2021,1 restaurant owners and staff need cleaning solutions that get more done in less time. That’s why Dawn Professional worked to innovate its best-in-class degreasing solutions: introducing Multi-Surface Heavy Duty Degreaser.
