INEOS, one of the largest manufacturing companies in the world, has today announced that it has started delivering millions of bottles of hand sanitiser each month to hospitals across France.
INEOS has started production at new plants at Lavéra and Etain in France in under ten days. It has repeated this in Herne Germany and Newton Aycliffe in the UK.
Working closely with hospitals, as of today, INEOS hand sanitisers are being delivered to Metz and Verdun as well as 29 hospitals across Southern France. Wider distribution will follow as both French plants reach full capacity.
Hand to mouth contamination is one of the main ways that the Corona virus infects people and there is a critical shortage of hand sanitisers across France and Europe.
