Diageo employees make hand sanitiser for local communities in scotland

Diageo employees across Scotland have begun distribution of more than 55,000 bottles of free hand sanitiser - produced at the company’s Leven packaging plant in Fife - to communities where the company has distilleries and operations.

Working in partnership with local authorities and community organisations, Diageo’s people across its network of sites cross the country will distribute the hand sanitiser to where it is most needed in local communities, targeting care homes, care in the community staff and people volunteering to help the vulnerable.

The 500ml bottles of hand sanitiser are being made to World Health Organisation formulation, with the liquid developed by a team at the company’s technical laboratories in Menstrie, Clackmannanshire. Production and packaging was undertaken by staff at the Leven packaging plant.

In Fife, Diageo is donating just over 10,000 bottles to the local community. The company is working in partnership with Fife

Council to distribute the supplies locally as well as distributing directly in conjunction with requests from employees.
