29 May 2013

French group CIS has signed a contract worth US$50 million with Brazilian mining group Vale to supply meals in northern Mozambique, the group said in a statement posted on its website.

The contract, which is for three years, includes construction of a kitchen and restaurant with room for 600 people in Nacala-a-Velha, in Nampula province, where Vale Moçambique plans to build a terminal to export coal mined at its concession in Moatize, in Tete province.

As well as the terminal, Vale will also build a railroad between Moatize and Nacala, passing through Malawi, and the CIS group will also provide its services in two locations along the line.

Under the terms of the contract, the French group will have to provide meals to between 3,500 and 5,500 people per day as well as laundry services for the 730 residents working at Vale Moçambique’s facility in Nacala-a-Velha. (macauhub)
