Help us put the word out to squeeze the opportunists and profiteers.
In a recent report (see the link below) the BBC are, very correctly, criticising the exorbitant price of hand sanitizer gel. As always, they’ve done their groundwork, but I don’t agree with all of their analysis.
They seem to be saying it’s unavoidable. Yes, prices for alcohol and ethanol have been going up, and up – and up, but it is still inexcusable that a 500 ml bottle of sanitizing gel is selling at £30. Someone in the supply chain for that retailer is exploiting the situation to squeeze both retailers and consumers. Now we need to put the squeeze on them.
We are selling a 5-litre drum of European made, fully compliant, sanitizing gel from £39 for large quantities. In fact, we are disinterested in profiting from the sale of this product. Take another example: we are selling a 75 ml bottle of gel from £1.58 per bottle.
So, sanitizer gel has become the stuff of reality, a key commodity. And, unsurprisingly, there are opportunists out there who are profiteering from the sale of this now vital commodity. The problem lies with distribution: from the manufacturer selling it on to distributors and resellers. Somewhere along the way someone is making a killing on it. Producers need to tie-in their partners to much higher ethical standards, all the way down the line. Those who flout the rules should be dropped from the chain. Significant penalties should be applied to those guilty of abuse.
Using LinkedIn and other social media channels, our aim is to help drive down the price. It's such a shame, really, that this is necessary. I salute those producers who are donating massive supplies to hospitals and governments.
Shame on you, you the profiteers!
