The world's largest beauty producer, L'Oreal, has turned to producing hundreds of thousands of hand sanitisers per day in a bid to support supermarket employees and improve their safety around the world. With limited numbers of hand sanitiser available during the pandemic, L'Oreal's plants have reorganised its production lines to adapt them to new packaging and technical formats.

"It was a huge challenge for our teams across the world to adapt themselves in order to deliver on time," said a L'Oreal spokesperson.

"Without their agility and commitment, this could not have been possible."

A total of 21 L'Oreal plants are mobilised worldwide and have increased its global production to more than 2.4 million litres.
