The Chief Executive Officer for Kasapreko Company Limited, Richard Adjei has revealed that his outfit decided to produce hand sanitizers instead of their notable soft and alcoholic beverages to help fight the outbreak of the Novel Coronavirus.
He said Kasapreko remains committed to the fight against the Coronavirus pandemic.
According to him, the production of hand sanitizers was in line with the president’s call on local industries to be self-reliant and stop importing stuff from other countries in these trying times.
He was speaking with Peace FM news when Kasapreko Company Limited donated 2,400 pieces of hand sanitizers to assist their campaign.
"We have also taken precautionary measures through deliveries to satisfy the spirit (alcohol) consumers to decrease the spread of the COVID-19," the Kasapreko MD sated.
On his part, the Deputy Minister of Information, Hon. Pius Enam Hadzide said his outfit has formed teams to reach out to people in the hinterlands with education on COVID-19 to reduce the spread.
Touching on how far the Ministry has gone with the mandatory campaign on COVID-19 assigned them by the president a few weeks ago, he said they have partnered with their district information officers and some churches have also released their vans to be used for the education in the remote areas.
Commending Kasapreko for their generosity, he praised them for shutting down their main spirit (alcohol beverages) production and resorting to producing hand sanitizers to meet the country’s demand as we fight the deadly coronavirus.
