New food line for Mer­ill Bear

Mer­rill Bear Pte Lim­ited will launch its new line of canned food in the com­ing weeks. It fol­lows the suc­cess of the re­cent launch of the com­pany’s range of sani­tis­ers.

While de­tails of the launch are yet to be de­cided, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Div Damodar said the idea was some­thing his com­pany had worked on be­fore coro­n­avirus (COVID-19). “We had planned to launch the new food line be­fore COVID-19, but we had to re-strate­gise.”

Based in Nadi, Mer­rill Bear Pte Lim­ited man­u­fac­tures sani­tis­ing prod­ucts – a need spurred by the grow­ing de­mand that arose from the coro­n­avirus pan­demic, Mr Damodar said.

The com­pany is his own, and is one he ven­tured into af­ter iden­ti­fy­ing the im­por­tance of sup­port­ing the lo­cal man­u­fac­tur­ing sec­tor, par­tic­u­larly dur­ing the global pan­demic.

Sani­tis­ers are avail­able in liq­uid form and as an­tibac­te­rial wipes.

“It’s 70 per cent al­co­hol, man­u­fac­tured lo­cally, so quan­tity and de­liv­ery isn’t af­fected.”
