Bernard Arnault, the president of Louis Vuitton and Dior, has ordered from today to produce hand sanitizers instead of perfumery. He made this decision due to the spread of the coronavirus across the planet
All manufactured antiseptics will be given free of charge to the French authorities, and then they will be distributed among the country's clinics.
Bernard Arnault said that for him and his company, the health of his nation has always been and will be a priority. He considers the shortage of disinfectants in France unacceptable when the coronavirus is walking around the country.
Why did a perfume and clothing company suddenly decide to produce antiseptics? It's simple, because of quarantine, people began to panic and in a few days the population bought the amount of disinfectants that it was supposed to sell in a year. Not everyone had enough antiseptics, but they all have to be in the current situation. For several weeks now, these funds cannot be purchased in stores and pharmacies, moreover, it is also unknown when the delivery will be. All lines producing eau de parfum Louis Vuitton and Dior have suspended their activities, now they are mass-produced hand sanitizers. The three main factories of the corporation, which are located in France, are exclusively involved in charity work.
More than 40 clinics and public hospitals will receive the first free consignments of disinfectants one of these days. For this week, it is planned to release more than 12 tons of funds. Bernard Arnault announced that his factories will work for the good of the country as long as there is a need.
It is worth recalling that the company has until now been engaged in the creation of unique luxury items, as well as luxury clothing segment. The most famous brands of the company remain Louis Vuitton, Dior, Kenzo, Givenchy.
