San Miguel Corp to produce 70% ethyl alcohol for free government use




The help is on its way.

Realizing that the spirit of “Bayanihan” in this time of crisis is needed more than ever, any help from the private sector, giant businesses, and the different Filipino taipans is more than welcome.


As per the Department of Health (DOH), the country has 142 confirmed cases novel coronavirus 2019 disease or Covid-19 cases with 12 deaths.

So when San Miguel Corporation’s (SMC) President and Chief Executive Officer Mr. Ramon Ang announced that they will be producing alcohol for the use of government hospitals and local government units, it’s a helping hand that is really a good news in the fight against covid-19.

SMC will be producing 70% ethyl alcohol at one of its facilities to provide free sanitizers for the exclusive use of government hospitals and local government units.

“We have the means and capability to produce this,and make it available for free to LGUs and public hospitals. We are working on getting the necessary clearances from the relevant government agencies, to produce this for public use. We ask that they help expedite clearances,” SMC’s Ramon Ang said in a statement.

“While hand-washing is still the best defense, hand sanitizers with 70 percent alcohol can be your next best option where soap and water are not available,” Ang explained.
Ang explains that production of the alcohol started over the weekend initially for use of SMC’s employees.
“This is so our facilities and our own employees will not be taking away from the already limited supply that’s available to the public. Our main intention is to get this to our government and healthcare providers at the soonest possible time,” he said.
