Are you using the right glove for the right task?
Handgards® wants to help you choose the right glove for the right task. With the recent labor shortages, supply chain delays, and the high cost of raw materials, choosing the right glove for your operation is a critical decision that can impact your bottom line.

We managed to position ourselves as the leader in food safety innovations by providing a variety of disposable gloves that give our customers the satisfaction and reassurance they deserve. Our unparalleled knowledge has made us a valued resource that our customers turn to for food safety products and guidance. Handgards mission is to deliver the right glove, for the right task, at the right price and to give the end-user the extra protection needed to prevent food contamination. We work closely with restaurant operators, chefs, and servers to continue learning firsthand what our customers need.
