5 February 2009

Calomboloca, Angola, 5 Feb – A bottling factory for mineral water of the Vitaliza brand, located in Calomboloca, in Angola’s Bengo province, was opened Wednesday in a ceremony presided over by local governor, Jorge Inocêncio Dombolo.

The plant, which is owned by Sociedade de Estudos e Serviços, Limitada, costing US$10 million, covers an area of 2,800 square metres and uses the latest technology, acquired with funding provided by Banco Internacional de Crédito (BIC).

Vitaliza mineral water will be extracted from the spring in Calomboloca, and will undergo all necessary tests for hygiene and safety.

Speaking to the press, the director of the management and design project, Marília Resk, said that Vitaliza aimed to make up for a lack of supply of mineral water and meet the needs of most of the population in the Luanda and Bengo market by providing a home delivery service.

She also noted that Vitaliza had teh capacity to produce 156,000 20-litre bottles per month and tap 120,000 litres of water per day.

In order to avoid having to import the bottles, the first bottle making factory in the region has been set up, making it possible to manufacture the bottles and plastic stands. (macauhub)
