Innotech Nutrition, Local Company Answers Call to Produce Hand Sanitizer

Innotech Nutrition Solutions, a Winnipeg based company that has been in business since 2001 and carries a site licence through Health Canada’s natural and non-prescription health products directorate, was among the first local companies to answer the call for help.

According to Innotech’s chief executive officer, Wayne Friesen, thanks to already having many of the systems in place required to make hand sanitizer, they were able to quickly begin production of this much needed commodity.

As an initial act of good faith, Innotech gave Bioscience Association Manitoba (BAM) 500 care packages that included bottles of hand sanitizer as well as the company’s ColFlex Oregano Oral Spray and other health supplements. BAM distributed the packages to front-line workers including doctors, nurses, paramedics, firefighters and police officers.
