COVID-19 Pandemic, Destileria Limtuaco & Co., Inc.,
Early on in the COVID-19 Pandemic, Destileria Limtuaco & Co., Inc., the oldest distillery in the Philippines, was faced with a decision. It is the same decision faced by many companies around the country: to completely shutdown operations or to adapt to the situation and provide for the country.
The management of Destileria Limtuaco & Co., Inc. decided to pursue the latter.
Forecasts suggested that the country would face a supply shortage in alcohol disinfectants during the pandemic period. Rather than completely ceasing operations in favor for the government's calls to quarantine, Destileria Limtuaco decided that they would take the necessary steps to repurpose their facilities to fill a need during this crisis.
Working closely with the FDA, DTI, BOI and DOF, the company was not only able to secure all necessary permits and accreditations but it is also the first company granted a certificate of accreditation as a Qualified Manufacturer of Ethyl Alcohol under RA 11469: Bayanihan to Heal as One Act & The Joint Memorandum Circular 2020-02.
This was no simple feat considering the requirement of operating with a minimal staff to satisfy national quarantine protocols. But through the efforts of key company personnel, tirelessly working on the compliance, production and distribution of Consumer Protect Ethyl Alcohol Antiseptic Disinfectant, Destileria Limtuaco was able to make a successful transition during this pandemic.
