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.
SABMiller is looking to generate strong growth in its Latin American markets by focusing on the introduction of "affordable" products in the region....
