Cork company to produce special label of thanks for healthcare workers
Munster Labels is producing a special 'thank you' label for healthcare workers.

A Mallow-based label manufacturer is the latest to support our frontline workers across the country with a special initiative.

Munster Labels have designed a label dedicated to healthcare workers which will be sent to food producers nationwide to use on their products’ packaging and to frontline staff as a thank you for their efforts during the ongoing pandemic.

Over half a million labels will be produced today and will be distributed free of charge to companies and healthcare staff around the country.

Platinum Paper and YRG in Dublin have provided Munster Labels with the raw materials for the job at no cost.

Speaking on C103's Cork Today Show earlier this week, Patrick Whelan of Munster Labels said that the labels can be used on packaging of food products and liquid containers and people can subsequently apply the label to clothing or uniforms.

He said that producing the labels was the company’s way of saying thank you to all of the “great” healthcare workers across the country.

“As a thank you, on Monday we are going to produce in excess of half a million labels.

“All it says on them is ‘thank you healthcare workers’, that’s it, full stop. And we’re going to distribute them to whoever wants them and to any companies that want them and we’d like them just to put them on their products or their lapels or whatever.

“We’re here to help them. I think all the food companies are the same, they’re here to keep the country moving but to be honest these people working in the hospitals, be it the storemen or anybody, they deserve the credit.” To inquire about the special label, email
