Beverage maker Apple Rush Company has entered a co-packing agreement with All You Need Goods.
Under this agreement, Apple Rush has begun co-packing a spray hand sanitiser for All You Need Goods in Jacksonville, Florida
Apple Rush CEO Tony Torgerud said: “We took on this project because we felt we could help during this National Pandemic of Covid-19.
“We are utilising our factory capabilities and knowledge in packaging to help fill a shortage of hand sanitiser.
“We believe that many distilleries that are helping with filling the short-term disruption in our supply chain will switch back to producing regular spirits as the country begins to loosen restrictions due to Covid-19.”
The Apple Rush Company, through its subsidiary APRU, distributes CPG products under the trademarked Apple Rush brand and other labels.
The company is also working to enter into the Japanese market, while its management is exploring to expand distribution of both Apple Rush and Element C in different regions of the country.
All You Need Goods president Garland Sullivan said: “We chose the Apple Rush Company to help with this project due to the proximity of the plant from our base in Jacksonville, and the total cost of actual production. Most sanitiser packagers are booked months out and the costs prohibit a company like ours from getting into the space.
“However, we used our expertise and extensive international contacts to source the bottles, sprayers, and packaging needs to enter the business quickly. We have made commitments to produce product for as long as we need to in many different packaging configurations. Our expertise in online sales and marketing provides us with an advantage in bringing products to consumers quickly.”
