Diageo donates 55,000 bottles of free hand sanitiser

Other 3rd Party
Diageo employees across Scotland have been distributing more than 55,000 bottles of free hand sanitiser to communities where the company has distilleries and operations.

Working in partnership with local authorities and community organisations, Diageo’s people across its network of sites around the country have been distributing the Diageo-produced hand sanitiser to where it is most needed in local communities, targeting care homes, care in the community staff and people volunteering to help.

The areas to benefit from the distribution include the rural areas where Diageo has distilleries. Across central Scotland, where the company’s packaging and production plants are based, communities in Clackmannanshire, Fife and Renfrewshire have benefitted from the donation.

The 500ml bottles of hand sanitiser are being made to World Health Organisation formulation, with the liquid developed by a team at the company’s technical laboratories in Menstrie, and production and packaging undertaken by staff at the Leven packaging plant.

The direct local production of the batch of hand sanitiser for communities in Scotland is in addition to an earlier initiative by Diageo which has seen 500,000 litres of alcohol donated to be manufactured into hand sanitiser for the NHS across the UK and Ireland.
