The sanitiser will be packaged in 500ml, 1-litre, and 2-litre bottles, as well as in 50ml tubes. All packaging will be manufactured by Pact Group.

Production will take place at one of our Sydney facilities and filling will take place at three other factories in Sydney. Three of the four sites will operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week, while one will operate 24 hours a day, six days a week. To achieve the production goal Pact will increase hours for permanent staff and casual workers.

Pact Group Executive General Manager – Contract Manufacturing, Greg Beilby was quoted in the Sydney Morning Herald as saying the company would run production “as hard as we can to meet the need”.

“What I’m really happy about is that we’re able to meet a community need in what is a pretty dire time,” he said.

In response to recent media reports of retailers setting excessively high prices for this products, we call on all retailers to act conscionably and reasonably in setting prices to ensure as many consumers as possible can access in demand hygiene products during this unprecedent period of time.

Approximately 95 per cent of the new product is expected to be sold in Australia.
