RTE had a good news article today as Irish distillers stepping up by switching production from booze to hand sanitiser.
Every business is facing challenges at this time and Irish Distillers – the makers of Jameson Whiskey said it will use its expertise to help the national response to Covid-19 by branching out their production to hand sanitiser.
Irish Distillers said the move to gel production will not impact the company’s production of whiskey.
The company is going to supply the gel for free to the Health Service Executive, in partnership with Cork firm Mervue Laboratories. Mervue Laboratories in Watergrasshill employs 90 people and usually manufactures nutraceuticals. It exports its products to over 60 countries worldwide.
Rosemary Garth of Irish Distillers said the supply of hand sanitisers is scarce during this coronavirus pandemic including “crucially for those who need it most.”
In a time of national crisis where there is a lot of fear about the pandemic, it is fantastic to see these companies stepping up, and should be applauded. Well done all.
