Showcasing the important work of the cleaning and hygiene industry this year
UKCPI has published its 2020 Annual Review, looking back at the work carried out by UKCPI and its committees throughout the last 12 months.
During this extraordinary year, the Covid-19 pandemic reinforced the importance of cleaning and hygiene for our health and wellbeing. The cleaning product supply chain increased production and worked hard to meet increased demand. We provided timely information on correct product use and signposted to official guidance.
Rowland Furse, Chair of UKCPI Council, commented:
“During the last 12 months we have witnessed ‘an unprecedented’ impact on the way our businesses have had to operate and also how they will operate in the future.
“The role of UKCPI in working with UK Government officials – not only in managing the here and now, but also raising issues for the future – has been invaluable over this challenging period”
Philip Malpass, Director General of UKCPI, said:
“UKCPI was a key contact point for UK Government officials providing support and advice to businesses and manufacturing operating during COVID. This was essential, given the critical role members’ products had in maintaining a safe environment – both in the home and workplace.”
