Murree brewery gets permission to make sanitizer

Murree Brewery has gotten the go-ahead from the Punjab excise and taxation department to start making hand sanitizer. According to the company’s CEO, they have been given permission to make 10,000 gallons of sanitizer per month till June 2020. Earlier this week, the brewery offered to mass produce and sell hand sanitizer with 70 percent alcohol to help fight the coronavirus outbreak in Pakistan.

While, Pakistan Standards and Quality Control Authority (PSQCA) has declared sanitizers of 23 brands substandard because they do not have the right amount of alcohol in them or pH levels by WHO standards.
