Motueka business Pete’s Natural has stepped up to the plate for its community by converting its manufacturing plant to produce hand sanitiser, after seeing the need for it. The news gained some coverage in the May issue of FMCG Business.

The sanitiser is made with 70% alcohol, in line with World Health Organisation guidance and is sold at New World and Fresh Choice, pharmacies, including local outlets such as Fry Pharmacy, McGlashen Pharmacy and Wakefield Pharmacy, Trade Me, and customers can also add a hand sanitiser to their online Pete’s Natural drinks order. The 50ml bottles have an RRP of $9.00.

Pete’s are also able to supply larger quantities, including five litre and 20 litre containers to medical practices, the hospital, police, NZ Post, couriers and others.
