L'Oreal Canada introduces coronavirus program
Montreal-based cosmetics company L'Oréal Canada has begun what it describes as a national “coronavirus solidarity program.” As part of this program, the company’s factory in Ville St. Laurent, QC will begin producing hydro-alcoholic sanitizing gel. This gel will be distributed for free to health professionals and hospitals. The company has also suspended receivables from eligible hair salons and spas in its distribution network until they are able to restart their businesses. L'Oréal Canada will also donate $200,000 in cash and hygiene products to organizations that support victims of domestic violence.
“L'Oréal Canada wishes to show solidarity with the Canadian community facing this exceptional crisis situation, and wishes to express its gratitude and support to all those who are taking extraordinary action to fight this pandemic,” said Frank Kollmar, president and CEO of L'Oréal Canada. “I believe it is our responsibility to contribute to the collective effort and I am proud to see the mobilization and resilience of my teams who wish to get involved and do their part in this unprecedented struggle.”
