Rasmus Munk Chef, Restaurant Alchemist, Copenhagen I had the chance to take part in creating our uniforms together with the designer form Kentaur, and I’m very happy with the results. Apart from looking smart the material is breathable with a lovely light feel to it which makes it very pleasant to work in. The apron solution that eliminates the need for straps feels very liberating. Performing at the front line. undefined Have your logo or name embroidered onto your workwear Made for people. At work.

Healthcare & Service

Vivi Møller Madsen The mobility in the clothes is optimal because they are stretchy, allowing for better movement. They fit comfortably. Great pants, both the summer and winter ones. It is important that there are pockets for the things we need to carry. The residents have commented a lot on how the colors are nice and calm, which somehow also soothes them. They think it looks good on us. Have your logo or name embroidered onto your workwear Made for people. At work. Responsibility is more than a 14-letter word. It's action.

Snap-On

With our Snap-On collection, we have redefined workwear for chefs by creating unique chef shirts, jackets, and aprons with ergonomic benefits. The collection was developed in collaboration with a renowned Michelin-starred chef. The goal was to develop a collection that had not been seen on the market before. It should reflect the concept of the restaurant, creating a common thread all the way around. Ergonomics were crucial. Therefore, solutions were sought to make the chef wear more comfortable. The main focus was on the neck area, which can often be uncomfortable when wearing a regular apron. The solution was to develop a completely new apron that does not need to be tied around the neck. Instead, the apron is fastened to the chef's jacket with snap buttons. By relieving pressure from the neck, discomforts such as headaches, neck pain, and numbness in arms and hands can be avoided. The snap button fastening also makes it easy to change the apron if it gets dirty. Thus, you can easily maintain a flawless appearance and focus on what's important - your craftsmanship. Our Snap-On collection offers a variety of colors, designs, and materials that you can use to underline your style. Whether you prefer a classic aesthetic or a modern style, there is a solution for everyone.

Rebranding

Throughout the years, we, at Kentaur, have worked towards building a good and solid reputation so that our customers and end users know who we are, what we stand for, and that our workwear is innovative, functional, comfortable, and of good quality. At the same time, you can be assured that the products deliver what they promise – and that we, as a company, do the same. With our own production, a well-functioning supply chain, and skilled employees in all key positions, all the components are in place to continue this journey. We want to remain your preferred choice, and to ensure this position, we made the decision in 2023 to refine our narrative.   Made for people.At work. Kentaur is still the same company! Created by people at work, for people at work. We are the same, so you do not need to worry about not recognizing us tomorrow. You can still make the same demands of us and our products – in other words, we are giving our ‘packaging’ a lift so that it better reflects the content. Our new brand promise ‘Made for people.

Made for people. At work.

Workwear matters. To the celebrated Chef de Cuisine and the busy waiter. To the dedicated clinic employee and the compassionate healthcare assistant. And to most other people at work. Therefore, since 1990, Kentaur has focused on creating workwear that, in addition to looking good, is also comfortable and functional, down to the smallest detail – giving you workwear you actually enjoy wearing. At the same time, it is our ambition that each and every piece of clothing is created to add value for professional laundries within the textile service sector. Specifically adapted to their business models and requirements. We strive always to maintain a responsible supply chain and act proper in everything we do. We are Danish – in our essence, our business ethics, our organizational culture, and in our relaxed and straightforward dealings. With each other. And with our customers and partners. Bottom line, what we do, we do for people. At work.   Thinking about responsibility.At work. For us, responsibility is more than just a word or a concept. It is our unwavering commitment. You should, therefore, see our Our Choice strategy as a testament to our dedication to crafting workwear that goes beyond mere functionality - it is about responsibility, accessibility, and making a positive impact on our world. When you choose Kentaur workwear, you choose more than just a garment; you choose: High Durability & Long Lifetime: We create products that stand the test of time, wash after wash. Timeless Styles with a Long Product Life Cycle: Our designs are not just for today; they are for the future, ensuring your workwear remains relevant and enduring. Social and Environmentally Responsible Production: We are on a continuous journey to reduce our social and environmental footprints, making every step count towards a better world. Circular Take-Back Solutions: We believe in second chances. Therefore, we are working on finding solutions to give old garments a new life, reducing the impact on landfills. Our Choice strategy is not just about us. It is about contributing to The 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development. Focused on goals 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth), 12 (Responsible Consumption and Production), and 13 (Climate Action), we are making strides toward a better future. Join us in making every workday not just about what you wear – but about the positive impact you create. To put it simply, we continuously think about our responsibilities. At work.

Our Choice

At Kentaur, we are conscious of how we communicate about our sustainable initiatives and guide you towards products that contain more sustainable materials and/or are produced in a more responsible manner. We admit that it's not easy. The downfalls of greenwashing are numerous, the documentation requirements are high, and the risk of providing misleading information is significant. We strive to be ethical, sincere, and transparent throughout the entire supply chain and towards our customers and the end users of our workwear. We aim to avoid the common clichés when describing our work, as they tend to confuse and mislead. We actively support the collective sustainable development by implementing and embedding the wave of new legislation well in advance. We aim to go beyond what is legally required of us, thereby driving the industry towards a more sustainable direction. It has been, and continues to be, an enlightening journey for us to communicate our work with responsible production and materials. How do we guide you without misleading? On this journey, we receive advice from companies like The Textile Revolution, which provide us with the necessary support and help to act ethically in our communication and guidance.   Beyond Responsible Choice Years ago, we labeled all products containing more responsible materials and/or relevant certifications with a green Sustainable Kentaur-logo. We realized this could be perceived as misleading, so we decided to remove the logo and change the wording to Responsible Choice on the respective products. All in an effort to better guide you in your selection of workwear. However, today even the term Responsible Choice is considered misleading if we are not very specific about what makes the product a more responsible choice compared to products made from conventional materials. We want to be specific, but we also want to make it easy for you to quickly identify the product that is a more responsible choice.   Our Choice Therefore, we introduce Our Choice. Our Choice is the umbrella concept for our work with CSR and sustainability. It replaces both our Work Wear and Care-concept and the Responsible Choice-label on products. Our Choice encompasses our work within: Circularity EU legislation Responsible product development   Our Choice Materials Our Choice Materials encompasses materials we have hand selected due to their characteristics. Whether it be innovation, circularity, social and/or environmental impact.  In other words, it is materials that go beyond the conventional. And they are our recommendation to you. Our Choice Materials replaces the previous classifications but evolves as new and innovative alternatives to conventional textile materials enter the market. Currently, the materials classified as Our Choice Materials include: TENCEL™ Lyocell TENCEL™ Lyocell x REFIBRA™ Recycled polyester and recycled cotton from post-consumer textiles Certified recycled polyester from post-consumer PET bottles, GRS certified or Unifi REPREVE® Fairtrade® cotton Mass-balance sourced Better Cotton Our Choice Materials does not secure a lower impact of the finished product itself as there are other parameters that need to be addressed as well. Therefore, these materials are not a miracle cure and inherently have a negative impact. The current Our Choice Materials are thus only a step in our journey. And we are more than happy to share our knowledge on product impact based on life cycle assessments. Want to find products with Our Choice Materials?

Pull-Up cuff

Our Pull-Up cuffs are designed for chefs and service personnel.  In the hospitality industry, it is often necessary to roll up your sleeves. Also, it often needs to be done quickly, as you are in the middle of a task. We have developed our Pull-Up cuffs so that you do not have to roll up your sleeves only to have them fall down shortly afterward. Our Pull-Up cuffs consist of a button and an elastic band at the wrist. When you pull up the sleeve, the elastic tightens, ensuring that the sleeve stays in place and doesn't fall down. With the Pull-Up Cuffs function, you can avoid irritations while working. The function can be found in several of our chef jackets and shirts.   Pull-Up The Pull-Up function is designed to make it easy to keep the sleeve up. This function is copyrighted and, therefore, only available at Kentaur.  With the help of an elastic band placed inside the sleeve and some buttons, you can easily and quickly roll up the sleeve and keep it up. So you can avoid getting your chef jacket dirty, even when carrying boxes.

Design

We have never believed in standing still as a state of being. Instead, we continuously challenge the conventional and the common. Always looking at the needs of professional laundries and users with fresh eyes. From new angles. And into new details. When we talk about innovation and progress, we mean serious business. Because we believe in staying at the forefront. Always being steps ahead. Unceasingly attentive to the factors driving the workwear market, now and looking ahead. We want to offer unique designs. Designs that show the effort we put in – all the way through. With us, nothing is left to chance. Every little detail contributes to the whole. Our designs reflect our Scandinavian heritage, where clean lines and simple, timeless cuts form the foundation of our entire range. We need to know the user. To understand the needs of each industry. That’s why we work with focus groups. With people from the industries, we develop clothing for. For them to give us insight into their daily life. And what features their workwear requires to ensure a fulfilling day on the job. Ergonomics and fit are two crucial factors. The clothes must fit – on all kinds of shapes. Therefore, we use our colleagues in the development process. And adjust the clothes according to them. To ensure that everyone wearing Kentaur is wearing it with pride. To ensure comfort, we choose materials that are comfortable against the skin. That lets the skin breathe and regulate body temperature. That are lightweight and thus do not weigh the user down throughout the day. We place pockets where they are easy to reach – without obstructing tasks during the workday. We design cuts in the back and neck areas to enhance flexibility and alleviate pressure. To avoid discomfort and tension and to make the workday more enjoyable. We develop features that make it easy and effortless to work in all kinds of temperatures. That easily can be taken on and off. That do not shift despite workdays with a lot of movement. We think about the environment. And choose new materials based on their impact. To ensure a positive development in our company. And to offer you better alternatives to conventional materials. In short, we are constantly exploring new and smarter ways to create utmost joy and foster growing success. For people at work. Masaaki Minamishima Designer For me, the design process is about creating a fresh and new design that sparks the user's curiosity. A desire to see more. To try the design. It's about creating the perfect balance in the combination of a new detail, a new quality, or a different cut, so the user can still see themselves in the clothes.

Ergonomic neck design

In the hustle and bustle of everyday life, comfort is key. Especially when it comes to the comfort of your workwear. Our ergonomic neck design was developed with this aspect in mind. Tested by the Hohenstein Laboratories and approved by a focus group, our design alleviates the daily discomfort often caused by workwear. By relieving the C7 cervical vertebra, our design can reduce discomfort such as headaches, neck, and shoulder pain, as well as numbness in arms and hands. This is particularly advantageous in healthcare- or other industries where tools need to be accessed quickly but can cause discomfort due to pressure on the neck when wearing them in the pockets of your top.  Our ergonomic neck design is a solution that evenly distributes weight across the entire upper body, thus reducing neck strain. And since it's a patented design exclusively developed by Kentaur, you can be sure you're getting a unique and reliable solution for your needs.

The Wing Jacket

Our Wing-Jacket is a very popular jacket among chefs and service personnel from various parts of the world, as it merges the simple chef jacket with the classic double-breasted chef jacket. We call it our chef and service jacket because it is also often requested as an element for clothing concepts aimed at retail, catering, and bakeries. The light fabric weight (175 - 180 g/m²) makes the jacket comfortable to wear in often warm environments. It comes with many different details, which overall give it a more relaxed, down-to-earth appearance. The jacket has a single visible snap button at the neck, which helps to make this design truly unique. The Wing-Jacket is available in different qualities and five different colors: white, black, green, sand, and blue.

Responsible product development

For us, it is essential to choose just the right materials for our workwear. Our demands go beyond color and pattern. We also place a high value on the material's environmental footprint, its quality, and its suitability for handling by industrial laundries.  We aim to create workwear that brings joy to the user for a long time. Workwear that is put on with a smile and worn frequently in various work situations. That supports the natural workflow with smart, innovative cuts and features. Thus, the choice of material plays a crucial role.  We ensure the best qualities by testing the materials we select. In our tests, we assess aspects such as abrasion resistance, color fastness, and durability. Our workwear must maintain its shape and color – for as long as possible.  To ensure a quality that can be handled by laundries, we also send our materials to be tested by them. This way, together, we can determine whether the material can be included in regular washing procedures.  We only choose to use materials in our production that have passed all our tests. Thus, you can feel confident that choosing Kentaur means choosing an enduring quality. At work.   At Kentaur, you can find workwear in various materials. Get an overview of them below.    Our Choice Materials Our Choice Materials encompasses materials we have hand selected due to their characteristics. Whether it be innovation, circularity, social and/or environmental impact. In other words, it is materials that go beyond the conventional. And they are our recommendation to you.   TENCEL™ Lyocell   TENCEL™ Lyocell is known for its innovative closed-loop production process. Wood pulp is transformed into cellulosic fibers, while more than 99.8% of the solvents are recovered and fed back into the loop, resulting in close-to-zero wastage. According to the Higg Materials Sustainability Index (Higg MSI), TENCEL™ Lyocell has a significantly lower environmental impact than generic lyocell in the categories of abiotic depletion of fossil fuels (up to 39%), global warming (up to 53%), water consumption (up to 69%) and eutrophication (up to 60%).    TENCEL™ Lyocell x REFIBRA™ Technology   To produce TENCEL™ Lyocell with REFRIBA™ Technology, wood and cotton textile waste are used as raw materials. The fibers contain a minimum of 30% recycled materials. TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers with REFRIBA™ Technology offer the same benefits as standard TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers. Like TENCEL™, REFIBRA™ is also a trademark of Lenzing AG.    Better Cotton  Kentaur is a proud member of the Better Cotton Initiative. With our membership, we have committed ourselves to improving global cotton cultivation. Better Cotton operates as a mass-balance system. Hence, purchasing a product with the Better Cotton logo is not a guarantee that the product itself contains cotton from Better Cotton-certified farming. However, by buying a product with sourced Better Cotton, you contribute to a more sustainable production ofcotton.  Many of our cotton-containing products are made with cotton obtained via the Better Cotton initiative. However, we only mark products with the Better Cotton logo when cotton is the dominant material in the product.  If you want to learn more about Better Cotton, visit bettercotton.org/ massbalance. We are committed to sourcing 50% of our cotton as Better Cotton by 2025.   REPREVE® recycled polyester (rPES)  REPREVE® is polyester made from used PET bottles. REPREVE® works to create a cycle where waste is recycled.  We are looking for alternatives to recycled polyester from PET bottles as these bottles should be recycled in a closed loop, becoming new PET bottles and not turned into textile fibers. Nevertheless, recycled polyester from PET bottles has a lower environmental impact than virgin polyester. Therefore, Kentaur will continue to use recycled polyester from PET bottles until there is a better solution for us on the market. Finding a suitable alternative to recycled polyester from PET bottles is an ongoing development project.   Materials with recycled textiles  Our materials with recycled textiles contain recycled textile fibers from pre- and/or post-consumer textiles. Pre-consumer textiles are textile waste from production, while post-consumer textiles are textiles that have been worn out in their current form. The material quality is developed for industrial laundries, ensuring good durability and colorfastness. The percentage of recycled material in the fabrics can vary from style to style. If you want to know the precise percentage of recycled material, you can always find this information on the individual product.    Conventional materials Cotton (CO)  Cotton is a soft natural fiber, and absorbs moisture well, giving it a high comfort level. In addition, cotton is very hard wearing, only superseded by synthetic fibers, and thus it is ideal in blends with polyester when a durable, hard-wearing material is required.    Polyester (PES)  Polyester is the most widely used synthetic fiber. When it is blended with cotton, the optimal mix is 65% PES / 35% CO regarding durability and suitability for washing. Polyester enhances the PES/CO blend with qualities such as strength, minimal shrinkage, crease resistance and short drying time. This makes PES/CO blends highly suitable for workwear.    EOL, EME, elastane & mechanical stretch  Many of our qualities are stretch fabrics, as elasticity increases comfort. It is important to ensure high recovery, so that elasticity and comfort are maintained throughout the product’s lifetime. As a rule, Kentaur uses stretch fabrics in which elasticity is achieved through firmly spun yarns and the weaving technique (mechanical stretch/natural stretch) or elastic fibers which can withstand washing in industrial laundries without losing elasticity.    Types of weaving Twill  Twill is a weave characterized by the distinctive slanting stripes, known from the denim fabric used for jeans. The twill construction produces a structured surface and a supple fabric. Many of Kentaur’s fabrics are twill, because this fabric is good for pants, upper parts, and aprons.    Plain & panama  Plain weave is the simplest weave. It is the same on the right side and the reverse side, firm and stable, and produces a strong fabric. Plain weave is normally used for the lighter products such as shirts and functional shirts. Panama is derived from the plain weave, but there are fewer binding points, which produces a softer and more supple fabric. Panama is normally woven in thicker yarns, which combines with the weave to produce a smart structured surface. Panama is used for aprons in Kentaur’s collection.    Pique  Pique is a knitted construction that is known from polo shirts. At Kentaur pique is used in garments in our HoReCa & Retail and Healthcare & Service segments. Knitted fabrics generally increase the comfort for the wearer since they have greater elasticity and allow greater freedom of movement than woven fabrics.  We collaborate with different producers to ensure that pique fabrics can be washed in accordance with ISO 15797 and meet requirements for stability of shape and color fastness.    Dyeing  For Textile Service, good color fastness is important, and the greater part of Kentaur’s collection is therefore vat dyed. Vat dyes give the best achievable color fastness to light, weather and washing, and furthermore, they withstand bleaches better than other dyes, ensuring that Kentaur products can be handled according to ISO 15797 and a variety of hygiene standards.

Whistleblower scheme

Whistleblower scheme We have set up a whistleblower scheme, which you can read more about on this page. We encourage you to read this before reporting your suspicion or concern. Who can submit a report? You can submit a report if you are a current or former employee in Kentaur or one of our subsidiaries (“Kentaur”), a business partner, supplier, customer or another external party with a connection to Kentaur. What can be reported? You can make a report through the whistleblower scheme if you have knowledge or suspicion of breaches of applicable laws and regulations and other serious matters, including breaches of EU law as set forth in the Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council on the protection of persons who report breaches of Union law, including (but not limited to) the following: Criminal offences, including fraud, embezzlement, misuse of assets, forgery of documents, accounting manipulation, bribery, corruption, money laundering and terrorist financing Competition law breaches and public procurement law breaches Breaches of occupational health and safety legislation Breaches of environmental regulations and laws on the prevention of the environment pollution Breach of professional secrecy Breach of protection of privacy and personal data Serious and/or repeated breaches of internal rules and guidelines in Kentaur Discrimination, severe bullying, severe harassment, physical violence, threats and sexual abuse The above are only examples. If you are in doubt as to whether or not your report falls within the scope of the whistleblower scheme, we encourage you to use our whistleblower scheme. The report will then be assessed, and you will receive feedback on whether your report is covered by the whistleblower scheme. Other matters, minor breaches of internal guidelines, complaints about other employees’ behavior or incompetencies, including information on less serious workplace conflicts and disagreements are not covered by the scope of whistleblower scheme. These types of matters must be raised in a dialogue with an immediate manager. You are encouraged to report any real or suspected breaches of the law through this internal whistleblower scheme. However, you may also decide to report your suspicion or concern to the external whistleblower schemes set up by the authorities. PWC If you decide to use Kentaur’s whistleblower scheme to report your concern, your report is received by an external third party, PwC (PwC Statsautoriseret Revisionspartnerselskab "PwC"). PwC is an independent audit, tax and advisory firm, which receives reports on behalf of Kentaur to ensure an independent and anonymous channel for you to report your concerns. After a preliminary review, the reports will be forwarded for further processing in Kentaur. PwC initially assesses whether the whistleblower report falls within the scope of the whistleblower scheme. If the whistleblower report does not have a sufficient level of information, PwC will try to obtain more relevant information from the whistleblower, if possible. PwC forwards all whistleblower reports to Kentaur after having evaluated who can handle the whistleblower report to ensure that the whistleblower report can be handled by an impartial and competent person and is not forwarded to a person whom the whistleblower report relates to either directly or indirectly, or where there may be another risk of conflict of interest. The HR-Manager of Kentaur The HR-manager is the overall responsible for the whistleblower scheme. The HR-manager is responsible for proper management of the whistleblower scheme and diligent follow-up on whistleblower reports. The HR-manager is responsible for deciding whether investigations of whistleblower reports shall be conducted and for ensuring that whistleblower reports are handled in compliance with applicable rules and Kentaur’s whistleblower policy. Confidentiality and objectivity A special duty of confidentiality applies to those who handle and investigate reports. All investigations of whistleblower reports are carried out with due respect for maintaining and ensuring independence, confidentiality, data protection and data security. Kentaur and PwC will keep information about the identity of the whistleblower and any persons mentioned in the whistleblower reports confidential to the greatest possible extent. Whistleblower protection Kentaur does not tolerate harassment and retaliation against whistleblowers. No whistleblower will be victimised for raising a matter through the whistleblower scheme as long as the whistleblower has raised a legitimate concern in good faith. Employees who in good faith make a report will not be subject to negative consequences, including consequences of an employment law nature, even if the report proves to be unfounded. Submit a report You can submit a report through this link: https://whistleblowersoftware.com/secure/kentaur

Value for Textile Service

At Kentaur, we strive to understand and make a difference for our customers. This is especially true for the Textile Service- and Industrial Laundering industry.  This cornerstone of our business guides every dedicated employee at Kentaur.   Through our standard program and by winning prestigious projects with our Textile Service customers, we have become a strong brand within Europe.   In all our efforts, we strive to be a reliable partner that delivers quality workwear with unique design. Which is why we from the first point of contact to initial design proposal all the way to the end of contract, want to support your business model through:    Product design & development  We design and develop workwear based on our more than 30 years of experience. This experience does not only support the business model of Textile Service companies but also adhere to the wants and needs of the end users.  We source and develop fabrics and accessories to meet the requirements of durability, functionality, look and feel. Ensuring that the workwear last throughout the contract period and the end users continued satisfaction with their workwear and supplier.  Through design and development, we want to not only meet the current requirements of the Textile Service industry but also make workwear for tomorrow. This is for example how we started creating unisex models in double sizes as we understood the economic considerations many of our customers face.    We have successfully incorporated focus groups of end users into our product development. We invite professionals from the segments we develop workwear for. This approach has led to numerous functionalities and details that lighten the wearers’ workday. This is a key step in remaining relevant and innovative.    Testing  Testing is our assurance that the finished product not only meets the requirement of durability but the look and feel as well. Which is why we rigorously test fabrics as well as products before releasing the finished article of workwear. Among the key aspects we evaluate are durability, shrinkage, and color fastness.  Durability is crucial. We conduct thorough abrasion tests to ensure our fabrics can withstand extensive use without compromising their integrity. This involves simulating everyday wash and wear to see how well the material holds up over time.  Shrinkage testing is another vital component of our quality assurance process. We subject our fabrics to various washing and drying cycles to measure how much they shrink. By understanding the shrinkage behavior, we can also provide accurate care instructions and ensure that our products maintain their shape and size throughout their lifespan.  Colorfastness testing ensures that our fabrics retain their vibrant colors even after repeated washing and exposure to sunlight. We perform rigorous tests to check for color bleeding, fading, and resistance to washing agents. This helps us guarantee that our fabrics remain looking fresh and new for as long as possible.  By conducting these comprehensive tests, we can confidently offer high-quality fabrics that meet the demanding needs of our customers. Our commitment to excellence ensures that you receive products that are not only beautiful but also built to last.  Our test efforts would, however, not be possible without our partner laundries. The knowledge and insight we gain throughout the tests and dialog is a vital part of our product development.   Production facilities  With our own production facilities in Serbia and Poland, we can offer the agility and flexibility our Textile Service customers need. Here, we can react quickly, produce smaller quantities and have the capability to finish stock items in our service center in Poland.     Responsible business model  In all our actions, we strive to maintain a responsible supply chain and conduct ourselves responsibly in close collaboration with partners in the industry and, of course, our customers.  We aim to do more than just comply; we strive to do better.  Kentaur is working on creating circular workwear solutions by developing a take-back solution that keeps products as high up in the waste hierarchy as possible and provides customers with accurate ESG data documentation.   A team of dedicated colleagues focuses exclusively on this important issue ensuring that we actively support collective sustainable development by timely implementing and anchoring the wave of new regulations. We will do more than is legally required of us, becoming the driving force to steer the industry towards a more responsible direction.

HACCP

Workwear is more than just clothes. It is a work tool that is faced with various criteria that must be met before it can be used in a demanding work environment. This is the case for our HACCP collection. A collection of workwear, approved for three different risk groups.   Risk Group 1 – low hygiene risk When the hygiene risk is low (when handling non-perishable food or ingredients) the protective function of workwear in relation to food is minimal. This applies to food that is adequately protected by the packaging or if it is to be further processed later by the producer or consumer. Workwear in this category has generally to be changed weekly; if soiled, it may be necessary to change sooner.   Risk Group 2 – high hygiene risk When the hygiene risk is high (when handling unpackaged perishable foods or ingredients), the protective function must be high, especially if the food is not to be processed further, and microorganisms can multiply in or on the food (for example, for foods that are sold unpackaged). This category also includes processes where the food is processed either mechanically or manually, and where the natural bacterial flora is specifically targeted (for example, by heating, salting, preservation using chemicals, or drying). Workwear in category RC2 is generally to be changed daily; if soiled, it may be necessary to change sooner.   Risk Group 3 – maximum hygiene risk Where there is the highest hygiene risk (handling unpackaged, extremely perishable foods for immediate consumption), an extremely high protective function must be guaranteed, since the foods have not been stabilized by processing, and microorganisms, including viruses, can possibly multiply. As appropriate for the highest hygiene risk, clothing in category RC3 must be changed daily, or more frequently if soiled.

Kentaur visits supply chain in China

For us, it is important to know our supply chain. All the way down to the raw material producers. Not just from afar, but also in person. That's why our Sustainability and Compliance Specialist, Katja Dam Kristensen, and our Textile and Sustainability Specialist, Line Nygaard Jensen, visited our suppliers in China autumn of 2023. The goal was clear. To gain a better understanding of our supply chain, strengthen collaborations, and, most importantly, ensure our supply chain due diligence work. Katja and Line visited dye houses, weaving mills, spinning mills, and material manufacturers of recycled polyester, elastane, and cotton. Katja Dam Kristensen Sustainability & Compliance Specialist It's great for us to meet our suppliers in their world and everyday lives. By meeting in person, we get to know each other better, which makes communication much easier afterward. Seeing the production process gives us a better understanding of how it works in practice. It's also reassuring to see that the documentation and certificates match reality, so we can confidently say that we have our supply chain under control. Katja and Line also visited several potential dye houses to find new partners. In this process, supplier visits are indispensable as they help us assess whether they meet our standards and expectations. This way, we can find the right match for us.

Circularity

At Kentaur, our primary objective is to produce workwear that lasts. Our garments are designed to withstand numerous wears and washes before reaching the end of their lifecycle. This commitment to longevity is not just about delivering high-quality products; it is also about minimizing our environmental footprint. By creating items that are resilient and long-lasting, we reduce the consumption of raw materials and the production of textile waste.  However, like all textile products, our garments eventually reach the end of their lifecycle. Rather than discarding them, we believe in giving them a second chance through circularity.  That's why we have partnered up with recycling experts who specialize in transforming textile waste into new fabrics.     CIBUTEX  Founded in 2022 by companies like Blycolin, Dibella, Edelweiss, Lamme, and Nedlin, CIBUTEX is dedicated to promoting circularity in business textiles.  CIBUTEX collaborates closely with upcyclers who require significant quantities of B2B post-consumer waste/resource textiles for their upcycling processes. These textiles must be white and composed of 100% cotton or blends with a maximum of 50% polyester.     Renaissance  Like CIBUTEX, Renaissance also reuses our white cotton and polyester textile waste. In 2024, we sent the first cutting waste from production in Poland to Renaissance and are planning to send more in the future.   While not all our garments can be reused through CIBUTEX and Renaissance, we are proud to contribute to the circular economy in every way we can. Moreover, we will continue to work on finding solutions for our colored textiles.     Fabric Cutting waste   Although we aim to use as much of our fabrics as possible when creating new products, we still produce pre-consumer waste in the production process. To make sure that our cutting waste is used in new ways, we collaborate with:    Rester  Rester recycles both post- and pre-consumer waste. The company recovers fibers and turns them into new fibers or various non-woven materials, such as insulation, acoustic panels, and filter fabrics, as well as composite.   In addition to our collaboration with recycling specialists, we are continuously seeking other alternatives to help minimize waste. For instance, we have created bags and other merchandise from discarded fabrics, and aprons and outdoor jackets from cutting scraps. We have passed on discarded fabrics to companies like Vær and Amolia, who have utilized these materials in their production to create shoes and toiletry bags. Moreover, we have donated products, including fabrics, to nonprofit organizations like the Red Cross.    There is still a long road ahead, but our drive to minimize waste and push the industry forward never wavers. At Kentaur, we are sewing the seeds of a more sustainable future, one stitch at a time.

Washing guide - Garments with TENCEL™ Lyocell

There are some things to consider when washing garments containing TENCEL™ Lyocell compared to polyester/cotton blends. In consultation with your detergent supplier, a wash process should be developed to remove the soiling and staining considering the special requirements for fabrics containing TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers. A) WHITE GARMENTS Consult your detergent supplier: In consultation with your detergent supplier, a wash process should be developed to remove the soiling and staining considering the special requirements for fabrics containing TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers. This should involve the use of a blend of anionic and non-ionic detergents. Soap-based products should not be used, to avoid the formation of scums which cause greying of the Brightening and stain removal: Optical brightening agents can be used to enhance the whiteness if required. Either chlorine or oxygen-type bleaching agents can be used to remove stains; these must be completely removed from the garments (especially chlorine) before the garments are tunnel-finished, to avoid yellowing. Rinsing: There must be sufficient rinsing to remove all chemical residues from the fabric before tunnel finishing. The pH and alkalinity of the garments after rinsing should be checked, not only the rinse water. Softeners: If softeners are used, it must be remembered that excessive softener build-up can contribute to premature damage, like pilling formation or fiber hairiness on fabric surfaces, as well as in some cases causing a yellowing effect. This may affect propensity for soil catching. B) COLORED GARMENTS Brightening agents: When washing colored garments, the use of optical brightening agents is not necessary. If used, they can give the impression of color loss because of their masking effect. Bleaching agents: The use of bleaching agents should be avoided except in exceptional cases as they can affect the colour and have the potential to damage the fabric if not fully removed during rinsing. Bordeaux (401) and dark colors: Bordeaux and dark colors are more susceptible to color bleeding. It is important to allow enough water in pre-washing and main wash to make sure that excess dyestuffs from the dyeing process are dissolved and washed out of the garments before wearing. If excess dyestuffs are still attached to the garment after laundering, it can increase the risk of color bleeding during wear. It is recommended to pre-wash bordeaux and dark colors 2-3 times according to specified temperature in a single washing machine where loading capacity and liquor ratio can be adjusted. Loading capacity: maximum 40% Liqour ratio main wash: minimum 1:6 Liqour ratio rinsing: minimum 1:7 C) GENERAL Lower loading capacity (appr. -20%) and corresponding higher liquor ratio compared to loading capacity of garments made in polyester/cotton blends. Washing: The washing process can be split into the following stages depending on the level of soiling: pre-treatment of the garment pre-wash – to remove solid matter so that detergents act on the soiling and staining effectively main wash –at a temperature maximum 75°C and a high liquor ratio / lower detergent concentration. pH after neutralization should be set between 6.4 and 7.6, please add adequate fresh water during the neutralization process. bleaching for white garments, should be done on low concentration (use other bleaching agents than hypochlorite to avoid cellulose degeneration) rinsing – Use of softeners is not recommended  Caution: To avoid setting creases (thermal shock) when the wash load is being cooled down from temperatures of 50-60°C, the rate of cool-down should not exceed 2-3°C per minute. It is recommended to have a sufficient rinsing process, when using bleaching and disinfection chemicals in the washing process, to avoid corrosion on metal trims e.g., buttons and zippers. The hydro extraction of TENCEL™/polyester garments should not be excessive, otherwise creases can set in. The extraction should be set to allow 30-40% water by weight to be left in the garments for optimum appearance after drying. Drying: The tumble-drying cycle (one dot) should include a cool down-period so that creasing is avoided. The residual moisture after drying should be 10-12%. If the garments are tunnel-finished, they should be fed into the tunnel finisher separately from other blends and finishes so that efficient drying and finishing takes place. A fabric surface temperature of 120-130°C is adequate for good appearance. Bone-dry garments (garments where no water is left after washing) must not be tunnel-finished as this can cause problems such as shrinkage and scorching (change of surface color and texture due to heat).

Circular Touch aprons

Circular Touch aprons We aim to close the loop. To extend the life of textiles by reusing them for the production of new items. This way, we can limit the use of new raw materials and minimize our impact.  The first step towards a circular economy has now been taken with our Circular Touch aprons. Aprons made from mechanically recycled cotton and polyester from textiles that have reached the end of their first life cycle. The recycled material constitutes 15 % of the fabric. The aprons come in designs you are already familiar with. Thus, only the fabric is new. In addition, we have attached a small label at the bottom of the aprons so you can clearly see that the aprons contain recycled materials. For us, it has always been crucial to use materials that are suitable for industrial laundering. So that users can enjoy our items for a long time – even after several washes. Therefore, we are very pleased that after a long search, we have now found a material that meets our requirements for high durability, colorfastness, and longevity. And that contains recycled materials. When you choose our Circular Touch aprons, you are choosing a better alternative compared to aprons made exclusively from new fiber materials.

Gosch x DBL Wulff Kiel x Kentaur

Gosch x DBL Wulff Kiel x Kentaur The right workwear is much more than just a protective layer against dirt. It is an expression of identity, professionalism, and a strong team spirit. Jürgen Gosch, the founder of the German GOSCH restaurants, understood this all too well when he set out in search of the perfect workwear. That's where he saw Kentaur and Wulff Textilservice as the ideal partners for this important task. Armed with his vision, GOSCH approached Wulff Textilservice, and subsequently, we were also introduced to their visions. With their thoughts and ideas in mind, our designer Masaaki immediately began sketching various ideas and sourcing the right materials. Recognizability was crucial, as GOSCH wanted to connect the many restaurants in Germany with the same workwear. Hence, it was crucial that the workwear was both functional and also embodied the essence of GOSCH. Red was a key color that best represented the identity because of GOSCH's well-known red logo. The red button was, therefore, chosen as the perfect complement. However, the project did not end with the design decisions. The perfect workwear also requires the best care. That's where Wulff Textilservice, a renowned textile service company, came into the picture, working closely with our team at Kentaur to find the perfect solution for GOSCH. Our joint efforts led to the creation of a collection of workwear that is not only functional but also stylish. Moreover, it fosters a sense of unity. The standardized design visually united GOSCH employees into one team in no time. Thanks to Wulff Textilservice and GOSCH for their trust and excellent collaboration.

Washing guide

Washing guide Kentaur designs and manufactures work wear that conforms to the user’s requirements as well as the requirements of industrial laundries. We only produce work wear with high quality materials and accessories, and we only supply good, proven and consistent quality that meets the demands of Textile Service. Kentaur does not own its own production facilities, so it is important for us to build strong and trusting relationships with our suppliers and thereby ensure that we are familiar with the entire production chain. We use relatively few and well-known fabric suppliers, as we are confident they can meet our customers' requirements. Kentaur tests all newly sourced fabrics in our own laboratory for e.g. durability, pilling and colour fastness, and it is important for us that our carefully selected materials also function well in the finished product. The industrial laundries are therefore an essential part of our entire approval process in relation to the final selection. For us, it is important that appearance and fit are preserved for as long as possible. We therefore recommend that you follow our laundry instruction.   Please see our washing guides: Garments in 65% polyester/35% cotton Garments in 50-70% cotton/30-50% polyester (cotton rich) Garments with TENCEL™ Lyocell/polyester Garments in polyester Garments in quality 4300

Due diligence

At Kentaur, we take our commitment to corporate due diligence seriously. This critical process helps us identify, prevent, mitigate, and be accountable for potential and actual social and environmental impacts throughout our supply chain.  Our approach to due diligence is shaped by internationally recognized guidelines, including the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains in the Garment and Footwear Sector, the Partnership for Sustainable Textiles, and the SME Compass by Agency for Business and Economic Development. We have crafted a systematic and structured approach that enables us to thoroughly analyze and manage risks in our supply chain.  This work is vital as it covers both our internal operations and our broader supply chain. Since the landscape of risks can shift with the evolution of our business practices and operational context, our due diligence efforts are continuously active and adapting.  In everything we do, we consider the social and environmental risks associated with our products, our business model, our sourcing practices, and the regions in which we operate. Adhering to our Responsible Sourcing Policy and guided by our Code of Ethics ensures that our actions are grounded in responsibility and transparency.  Our risk management framework is dynamic and based on the severity and likelihood of potential harms reviewed and updated at least annually. This comprehensive evaluation covers a spectrum of concerns from human rights to labor rights, environmental impact, and anti-corruption, assessing 18 different parameters. We strategically prioritize our actions based on these risk assessments, and the scale of our purchasing decisions influences how we prioritize risks in our supply chain.  This structured vigilance ensures we not only meet but exceed standards, demonstrating our unwavering commitment to ethical practices and the well-being of our global community.    Risk Management    Living wage  The issue of living wages is a subject of ongoing debate within Kentaur, reflecting a persistent challenge in the textile sector.  We risk contributing to socially negative impacts in our supply chain if the remuneration of the production employees is not equal to the wage needed for decent living in their specific region.  At our own production sites, we have a wage system. It contains three wage levels that ensure that all employees’ competencies and efficiency get rewarded and that their remuneration reflects the value of their work.   We use dialogue, third-party amfori BSCI audits, and OEKO-TEX® STeP audits for external monitoring of fair remuneration at our own- and suppliers' production sites.   In case of deviations, the supplier must make a corrective action plan (CAP) to remediate the deviation. We follow up on the CAP through dialogue with the suppliers.  In 2023, we made a corporate strategy to achieve living wages at production sites. We attended the 8th UN Global Compact European Business and Human Rights meeting. The main topic was living wages. We also applied to be part of the UN Global Compact Business and Human Rights Accelerator program that started in 2024.    Environmental impact of input materials  Our LCA studies and climate accounting display that the production of textile materials has a tremendous negative environmental impact.  We do not know the specific environmental impact measured on materials and products in the development phase. This means that we cannot state for sure that we make the least impactful decisions when developing new products.  Today, we have a tool that estimates global warming potential, water consumption, and land use on our materials and products. To enhance our efforts in preparing for the EU Product Environmental Footprint (PEF), we have found a partner who enables us to continuously measure the impact of all our products in a transparent, trustworthy, and straightforward manner.    Supply chain grievance mechanism & remediation  Our due diligence efforts intend to identify, prevent, and mitigate potential harm before turning into adverse impacts.  Potentially, the risk of harm can become an actual impact.  Via our business and purchasing mechanisms, we take responsibility for potential and actual social and environmental adverse impacts we might have caused or contributed to.   We encourage our supply chain to notify us about eventual grievances through our supply chain grievance mechanism.   A description of our grievance mechanism and remediation process can be found in our Supply Chain Grievance Mechanism and Remediation Process description. See our Code of Ethics.  In 2023, we added a whistleblower scheme managed and operated by an independent third party, PWC. Read more on about the whistleblower scheme.  With all our initiatives and projects, we strive to ensure that we always adhere to our due diligence. This way, both we as a company and you as a customer can always maintain a clear conscience. At work.
