The batch of hand gel has been produced as a one off project at the family-run company, Beaphar-Sinclair’s, manufacturing site in Raalte, Netherlands, which has already manufactured 22,500 bottles of hand sanitiser.

These have been distributed to the company’s four manufacturing sites in the Netherlands and the UK, as well as Beaphar offices around the world to donate to organisations in their local community.

Two pet retailers, Trim Pets and The Dog House, five primary schools, St Barnabas Hospice and several care homes in the Gainsborough area will be receiving bottles of the new hand gel.

Some bottles will also be sent to West Lindsey District Council for use in their offices and by their frontline workers, such as the refuse collection team, as well as to Tesco for customers to use as they do their shopping.

Dr Sue Huggett, business manager at Beaphar UK, said: “Disinfectant manufacture is something we already do and, as a family-run company, we are using this knowledge to produce hand sanitiser gel to support our working family, as well as families within local communities. The hand gel is already being used by our production staff at Gainsborough, and being distributed locally.

“We’re living in unusual times, but everyone within the company is thrilled that we can not only help keep pets happy and healthy, but that we can do our bit in helping people keep safe.”
