Price of 75% alcohol to stay, production will increase

2020-04-20
Recently some media reports cited TSC’s official announcement that TSC limited the buyers and production volume of 95% alcohol in bulk and raised the selling price, starting from April 20. TSC emphasizes since 75% rubbing alcohol (350ml per bottle) is an essential resource for disease prevention, the current price of NT$45/bottle will remain unchanged, and so do its distribution channels.
 
TSC clarified that buyers of 95% alcohol in bulk are different from those of 75% rubbing alcohol. In consideration of ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the company limited the buyers and production volume of 95% alcohol in bulk and raised the price to reflect raw material cost. However, this adjustment will have no impacts on the retail price nor on the production of 75% rubbing alcohol.
 
“As COVID-19 pandemic continues, the procurement price of alcohol raw material has risen over 30%,” TSC said, adding that considering 75% alcohol as an essential resource for disease prevention, the company absorbs the rising cost and maintains 75% rubbing alcohol (350ml per bottle) retail price unchanged, NT$45 per bottle. Moreover, as a new batch of raw material just arrived, the company is going to boost the production to meet the demand for virus prevention. TSC 75% alcohol is widely marketed at Carrefour, RT-Mart, PXMart, FamilyMart, 7-11, and HiLife and there is no need for people to worry or panic. 
     
TSC also reminds that panic-buying or hoarding of 75% rubbing alcohol is not necessary but to buy just enough for actual needs. Please note that those who are under 18 are not allowed to purchase alcohol. TSC stands together with people in Taiwan to fight against the coronavirus and hopes to ride out COVID-19 crisis together.
