“The company is now experiencing a surge in client demand right across our range of soap bases, as hand washing increases around the globe; and [it] is certainly something we're ready for,” explains Sales and Marketing Director James Clews. “The sales process can carry a long latency as with soap products, it can take several months to arrive at its destination. We're certainly hearing lots of questions around capacity and are we ready to scale up when we need to.”
