Chelsea-based chemicals giant Ineos, owned by Sir Jim Ratcliffe, has met its target – announced in March – to produce one million hand sanitisers a month and is focusing on meeting the needs for frontline NHS staff, along with care services, in making pocket hand sanitisers.

Ratcliffe said: “Now that production of the Ineos hand sanitiser has started, we are working on the fastest way to get them where they need to be. I am confident that, within a few days, our sanitiser will start to be seen in hospitals, surgeries and people’s homes.” He added: “If we can find other ways to help in the Coronavirus battle, we are absolutely committed to playing our part.”
