Covid-19: Menarini Group converts production plant to produce and donate disinfectant gel
United in the fight against Covid-19. In a difficult time for Italy and the entire world, pharmaceutical company Menarini Group is taking healthcare professionals and patient health even more to heart.
The Board of Directors of Menarini, chaired by Eric Cornut, has decided to convert part of its production plant in Florence (Italy) to manufacturing disinfectant gel to be donated to those hospitals and healthcare organisations who are in the front line in the battle against Coronavirus.
Menarini will be producing 5 tons of disinfectant gel per week which will be distributed throughout the Italian territory and free of charge by Italy’s national Civil Protection Department.
“Doctors and healthcare professionals are the true ‘heroes’ in the fight against COVID-19 and through our donation of disinfectant gel we hope to be able to help them work in greater safety”, stated Elcin Barker Ergun, Chief Executive Officer Menarini Group.
