Even though our lives have been turned upside down by COVID-19, we took the challenges of President Donald Trump (@realdonaldtrump) and California Governor Gavin Newsom (@gavinnewsom) and met the moment. Converting several of our manufacturing lines over to an item we have never produced before was no easy feat, but we made it happen by creating our very own Amoretti Hand Sanitizer.

Deeply motivated by a desire to help others, we were challenged by severe shortages in raw materials and packaging. We used only raw materials and packaging we had available in house, including 200 proof tax-paid cane alcohol which we typically use for extraction of our flavors. Our initial batches were largely donated to local police and fire departments, first responders, and EMTs.
A very big thank you to the Ventura County Fire Department, Oxnard Police Department (@oxnardpolice), Ventura County Sheriff’s office, and the Ventura County Police Department for personally stopping by to pick up your donations as well as meeting two of our founders, Jack and Maral Barsoumian.

We could not be any more humbled or honored to serve our local communities in times of need. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for working so tirelessly to keep our neighborhoods safe and secure, not just during a national pandemic, but always. We’re all in this together.
