The Apple Rush Co. (APRU), a beverage maker, manufacturer of consumer brands and CBD and Kratom products and drinks, has begun co-packing hand sanitizer for All You Need Goods LLC.
“We took on this project because we felt we could help during this national pandemic of Covid-19,” said Apple Rush CEO Tony Torgerud. “We are utilizing our factory capabilities and knowledge in packaging to help fill a shortage of hand sanitizer. 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.”
Garland Sullivan, pesident of All You Need Goods LLC, said, “It has been great working with Tony and his team; not only is he a hard worker but a genuine guy. He does a great job at putting his clients first, and the Apple Rush Company is allowing the true American Dream to take place, allowing an American company to source local product and manufacture it here. 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 sanitizer 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.”
Torgerud said the company continues pursuing the requirements needed to break into the Japanese market with Apple Rush.
