A thousand (1000) bottles from the produced batches will be provided for the needs of “Smile of the Child”.  441 Sanitary Warehouse Base operates two production lines every eight hours, producing 1,200 bottles of 400 milliliters per day or 5,000 bottles of one liter to meet the logistics needs arising from the integrated supply chain support, designed by the General Staff of the Hellenic Ministry of Defence.
