Looking at my new purchase of Fairy liquid detergent(prompted by their advertizing on TV lately). I also saw that this British product is actually made in The Philippines. |
The blurb below is from Wikipeadia.
Fairy is a British brand of washing-up liquid, the manufacturer owned by the American company Procter & Gamble. the West Thurrock factory (The London Plant), in England. Fairy liquid is traditionally green, prompting the well-known advertising jingle "Now hands that do dishes can feel as soft as your face with mild green Fairy Liquid".
As of 2015, Fairy is sold in most parts of Europe, although regional names vary. Fairy liquid is available in a variety of colour and scent combinations. The original white bottle with red cap was replaced with PET bottles.
In the UK, Fairy Liquid has become a genericized trademark for washing up liquid.
Fairy soap bars were originally manufactured by Thomas Hedley Co. of Newcastle upon Tyne which was acquired by Procter & Gamble in 1927.
