ZIMBABWE: Delta Corp opens new US$17m bottling line
Delta Corp is one of Zimbabwe's biggest investors
Delta Corp, Zimbabwe's biggest brewer and soft drinks producer, has opened a US$17m bottling line at its Southerton Lagers plant.
The new machine has a capacity of 70m litres a year and can produce 42,000 pint bottles an hour, Delta said. The line went into operation on Monday (5 November).
Delta, which is part owned by SABMiller, is also investing $4m in new fermentation vessels at both its Southerton and Belmont plants, the company said. “The impact will be significant and should place us in a position to adequately meet lagers demand for the foreseeable future,” it added.
Earlier this year, Pearson Gowero took over as the group's CEO, after Joe Mtizwa stood down.
