GHANA: Distell ups West Africa interest with bottling plant launch
Distell will produce cider and spirits at the plant
Distell has opened a US$5m alcoholic beverage bottling plant in Ghana as it seeks to expand its footprint in West Africa.
The plant, just outside Accra in Tema, will produce Distell's cider and whiskey brands as well as other spirits, the South Africa-based drinks producer said today (12 June). It was built in partnership with West African trading conglomerate Finatrade Group, which said the project was an example of how international companies can “pool their skills” with local operators.
In return, the new bottling plant will develop management and technical skills for employees in Ghana and boost the country's manufacturing sector, Finatrade said.
Distell's international operations performed well in its most recent H1 figures, with sales up by 48.9% to ZAR2.94bn (US$273.8m).
