Expanding from a local brewing company to a comprehensive alcohol company in supporting of a changing world. Meiri Shurui, a long-established company in Ibaraki Prefecture, decided to enter the public health business with a social mission.
To establish its place in the disinfectant market, Meiri needed to distingush itself from its competitors. As a latecomer to the space, a design that would embody their post-COVID strategy was required.
When disinfectant products disappeared off store shelves in the spring of 2020, Meiri began developing a disinfectant solution to alleviate the shortage.
Meiri Shurui was founded with the philosophy to brighten and enrich people's lives and contribute to local communities through the provision of alcohol products. The MEIRI brand was born out of that mission.
Developed as a quasi-drug, yet affordable. The bottle's universal design blends in with various aspects of daily life and represents the company's philosophy that supports people's interaction with each other.
