San Miguel to Produce Rubbing Alcohol, Will Distribute for Free

Amid the shortage in alcohol sanitizers, the country’s largest conglomerate is looking to produce 70 percent ethyl alcohol at one of its facilities and distribute the product for free to communities through local government units.

Aside from ethyl alcohol, San Miguel Corporation head honcho Ramon Ang said the company is also donating disinfectant powder to local government units, which is safe for humans and can easily be deployed as extra protection against the virus.

Ang said the company has “the means and capability to produce this, and make it available for free to LGUs and public hospitals.” They are “working on getting the necessary clearances from the relevant government agencies to produce this for public use,” and asked for help to “expedite clearances.”

Ang added that subsidiary Ginebra San Miguel has already begun production of the alcohol over the weekend, for initial use in its facilities and for thousands of its employees.
