As the world battles the pandemic Covid-19, our safety is now in our own HANDS—observing personal hygiene.
But for the manufacturers of Doxa Hand Sanitiser (Korde Chemist Limited), this is a case of ‘same script, different cast’.
The Ebola crisis in West Africa was the catalyst that inspired a partnership with the Department Of Pharmaceutical Chemistry, KNUST for the production of the hand sanitisers on a commercial scale.
Being an Mphil student of the department at that time, the CEO, Mrs. Abenaa Owusuwaa Amoatey, worked under deadline-driven conditions in a pressurized environment.
Fast forward, she sees it as a dry run for the challenging times we are in at the moment.
Hand sanitisers are on high demand. Perfect time to cash in!
On the contrary, Korde Chemists Limited is putting Ghanaians first.
The business has, therefore, put a number of remarkable measures in place to help lower the spread of the virus:
- Kept prices of the hand sanitiser low and fairly constant at the highest quality of production. In effect, bearing the price hikes in raw materials.
- Instituted a quota system to enable supply to all parts of the country ( Bawku, Tamale, Akomadan, Mim, Goaso, Swedru etc).
- Donated products to some of the most vulnerable in society (orphanages in Kumasi).
- Offered coaching in the production of hand sanitisers to several entrepreneurs.
Thank you, Doxa.
