Angola’s Agrinvest to invest US$250,000 in product preservation facilities

6 September 2006

Luanda, Angola, 06 Sept – Angolan agricultural sector company Agrinvest is set to invest US$250,000 on refurbishing a set of warehouses and refrigeration units used for preserving products, the company’s managing director, Sebastião Teixeira Coelho told Angolan news agency Angpop.

Coelho said that the refurbishment work, which is taking place to the south of Luanda, would also include the installation of offices and sales and storage warehouses.

The development is intended to ensure that the agricultural products grown at Agrinvest’s farm, located in Bengo province, some 60 kilometers from the Angolan capital, are delivered in good condition.

Teixeira said that Agrinvest had decided to set up preservation warehouses in Luanda in order to prevent products from being exposed to excessive heat and to keep them closer to the city’s supermarkets, which are the company’s main customers. (macauhub)
