GO5 Packaging Uganda – Face mask production

Short description

GO5 Packaging Uganda is producing affordable face masks in response to the COVID situation in Uganda

Description

Traditionally, GO5 produces non-woven bags as an alternative to plastic bags. However with the influx in COVID-19 cases in Uganda, and the rising demand for face masks and other personal protective gear, GO5 has started production of face masks from the same non-woven material.

While production is currently at 500 masks/day, the goal is to acquire funding to purchase additional machinery to boost production, maximize economies of scale and reduce the prices per mask even further.
