Hibiscus: helping to keep critical supply chains running

Hibiscus at capacity

UK label manufacturers in the chemical industry, with designated ‘essential business’ status, are mobilising to deliver printed products that are in high demand during the Coronavirus health crisis.

Hibiscus has shipped hundreds of thousands of labels over the last few weeks, for products that are vital to the industries that are fighting the Coronavirus epidemic. Hand sanitiser labels, janitorial product labels, and pharmaceutical labels are crucial in our customers’ battle to keep products on the shelves.

Hibiscus is running at capacity with limited staff on-site, and doing everything possible to restrict interaction between our essential staff, whilst maintaining label production to meet the increased demand for vital active substances

James Killerby, Hibiscus Director, said, “‘We are fortunate to have a great team of employees and suppliers that continue to work really hard to ensure our customers can keep providing essential goods”.


Sanitizer labels

Many supermarkets and chemists still have strict limits in place on the number of hand sanitising gels shoppers can buy as producers struggle to source enough ingredients and small plastic bottles. Some hand sanitiser bottles without safety labels have been seized by trading standards authorities because they did not contain the correct safety guidelines.

Across the country, many distilleries are also pivoting to make alcohol-based hand sanitiser and Hibiscus has printed various labels for distillers and brewers that have converted their business over. These distilleries were impacted significantly, and this is one way they were able to stay in business while also helping the community.

Some of the UK’s existing manufacturers of biocidal hand sanitiser products have reported that they are facing significant challenges to their normal supply chains from increasing demand for the raw ingredients needed to meet unprecedented requirements. In response HSE has taken the following steps
