Atchison, KAN., March 20, 2020 — We applaud the distilling industry for helping in the fight against COVID-19. MGP (Nasdaq: MGPI) is playing an important role in this effort by doing everything we can to address an exponential increase in demand for our industrial alcohol, which is used in the production of hand sanitizers and commercial disinfectants. While we’ve always produced a significant amount of the alcohol needed for these products, we have ramped up production at our Kansas and Indiana facilities during this critical time. MGP employees are working around the clock to support the needs of companies that produce these vital products. All of us are committed to continuing the legacy our company was founded upon more than 75 years ago, as a supplier of industrial alcohol for the U.S. war effort.
