Kasapreko Company Limited, an indigenous manufacturing giant has responded positively to the request of President Nana Addo Danquah Akufo Addo’s appeal for local industries to produce hand sanitisers to curb the spread of Coronavirus disease in Ghana.

At a ground breaking production and media briefing, the Chief Executive Officer of Kasapreko Company Limited, Mr Richard Adjei said “the spread of Coronavirus  is a national concern and as a result we have put on hold the production of drinks and focused on the production of  quality, affordable hand sanitisers and hand rubbing alcohol amid shortage of these products and price hikes”.

Mr Adjei reiterated President’s quote: “These are not ordinary times in which we need to do everything possible to support the government’s efforts in smart ways to help prevent the viral outbreak.”

Commenting further on the new product, Mr Adjei commended the Research and Development Unit of Kasapreko and the Food and Drugs Authority for responding quickly to the challenge and hence the approval of the production of Kasapreko hand sanitisers and hand rubbing alcohol.  

He said the company has the capacity to produce over 200,000 bottles a day.

Kasapreko Hand Sanitiser and Rubbing Alcohol contain active ingredients such as Ethanol, Hydrogen Peroxide, Glycerin and Purified Water. This type is without gelling agent, fragrance or colour as recommended by World Health Organisation.

The Hand Sanitizer and Hand Rubbing Alcohol comes in various sizes, 750ml and 200ml bottle. It is made in a way that you can easily dispense into any container with the spray pump.

He assured the government and the general public of the product’s availability across the country and pledge to donate free quantities to various health and governmental agencies.
