It’s an unprecedented time of change, and businesses are doing amazing things.
Examples we’ve spotted* in the food and drink sector are breweries and spirits manufacturers switching production to make hand sanitiser, including many UK-based companies. These businesses are going above and beyond to respond to this urgent need, often donating their sanitiser free to local groups and charities.
Aberdeenshire brewery BrewDog has used their brand and named their hand sanitiser BrewGel. We love the BrewDog branding, and their hand sanitiser packaging is equally as eye-catching with its vivid blue label and uppercase, confident typography.
Conker’s hand sanitiser from Dorset looks like it’s straight from a laboratory. The clean and simplistic label layout and cream and black colour palette also reflects Conker’s signature branding.
Psychopomp and Verdant Spirits are two more of our favourites. Bristol-based Psychopomp is offering a small bottle of sanitiser with every gin order, and encouraging donations to a local children’s hospital charity. Verdant Spirits, a father and daughter team in Dundee, have decided to use their facilities to make hand sanitiser for their local health and care workers.
HMRC approves all applications to use denatured alcohol which is integral to the manufacture of sanitised hand gels. Under measures announced last week, applications are being fast-tracked so that manufacturers wanting to produce hand sanitising products can be authorised quickly.
