Additionally, ADM is donating nearly 10,000 1.75-liter bottles of Sazerac’s hand sanitizer to healthcare and long-term care facilities in Decatur, Illinois, through ADM’s social investment program ADM Cares, to help address local needs.
“We recognize that healthcare workers in hospitals and long-term care facilities are on the front lines of the battle with COVID-19 every day, and we are committed to doing our part to support their efforts in Decatur, our North American headquarters and the heart of our largest employee population,” said Jennifer Ballinger, director, ADM Cares.
“We’ve seen a huge demand for hand sanitizer on an industrial scale, and we’re appreciative we’ve been able to rely on our longstanding partner, ADM, to assist by producing a critical component of hand sanitizer—ethyl alcohol,” said Brett Schleder, director of procurement for Sazerac. “Together, our efforts combined have helped in the battle against the spread of COVID-19 for team members in various industries across the country.”
