ISLAMABAD: A liquor company has sought permission from the Punjab government to manufacture alcohol based hand sanitisers to meet the demand of the consumers who are eager to protect themselves against coronavirus pandemic.

In his letter, Chief Executive of Murree Brewery Company Isphanyar M Bhandara requested the Punjab Director General of Excise and Taxation to give permission to his company to manufacture/sell alcohol based hand sanitizers. “Murree Brewery Company Limited possesses L-1 and L-3 Licences which are for manufacturing/sale of intoxicating liquor and ethanol is the basic raw material for it,” he said.

He further said in his letter “Considering the current pandemic situation of COVID-19 in the country and shortage/unavailability of hand sanitisers throughout Pakistan, we believe that as a responsible company, we must play our role in making hand sanitizers on war footing to help the nation in this hard time.”
