10 breweries and distilleries around the world making hand sanitiser

Altia, Helsinki, Finland

A state-owned alcoholic beverage company in Finland, Helsinki-based Altia, has also pledged to help produce up to 200,000 bottles of hand sanitiser per day.

Altia will not be responsible for producing the finished hand sanitiser itself, but will instead produce large volumes of ethanol for use by other companies. In a statement sent on Tuesday (17 March), the company said it had delivered over 70,000kg of denatured alcohol.

Altia’s CEO Pekka Tennilä said: “For a long time, we have served several companies that produce hand sanitisers. In this critical situation, our focus is on ensuring the sufficiency of raw materials and continuing deliveries to our current customers, in addition to serving new customers as quickly as possible.”
