GCCA partners with Distillery Association for hand gels

Washington, DC, USA: The Global Cold Chain Alliance and the Distilled Spirits Council of the United States have a website to help distillers making hand sanitiser with logistics.

GCCA’s members are a critical link in the coldchain and deemed an “essential business and service” under the Presidential Policy Directive.

Hand sanitizer is an important component in keeping food supply chain company facilities clean and disinfected. Acknowledging that hospitals and the medical industry are first in line for the product, we ask that the food supply industry be one of the next in line.

“GCCA commends and thanks these distilleries and DISCUS (Distilled Spirits Council) for their efforts in helping fight the spread of the COVID-19 virus,” says Megan Costello, Interim President & CEO.

“By voluntarily shifting from producing alcohol alone to producing hand sanitizer, they are playing an essential role in helping keep the nation’s food supplies moving. We encourage our members to reach out to a local distillery today.”
