Maputo, Mozambique, 12 Sept – The work to expand the production capacity of the Cervejas de Moçambique (CDM) beer factory in the Mozambican city of Beira, is scheduled to be concluded before the end of the year, the company’s director general said in Maputo.

According to newspaper Notícias, the project is valued at US$17 million and is expected to double production capacity before peak consumption over the holiday season.

Director general Roger Smith gave this information when the company was granted permission to use the “Made in Mozambique” seal.

The work also includes storage facilities for malt of up to 2,100 tons, as well as expansion of fermentation and storage capacity for beer through additional tanks.

CDM is majority-owned by SABMiller plc, which has committed to continue investing in Mozambique, according to market needs. (macauhub)
