8 August 2013

Angolan mineral water production company, Saudabel, plans to set up a new water bottling factory in Benguela province.

The head of the company’s commercial and sales department, Hugo Silva said that the area where the factory would be built was being prepared but declined to give details of the investment being made or the date construction would begin.

In the company’s expansion plan, Saudabel outlines plans to operate in the Angolan provinces of Huambo, Bié and Kuando Kubango through subsidiaries.

The company currently has two factories, with capacity to produce around 5,000 bottles of water per day. It recently introduced a new one litre bottle to the market. Until then the company only sold bottles of 18.9 litres of water.

Silva also said that turnover in 2012 had totalled around US$10 million, which was expected to double in 2013.

Saudabel, which was founded 12 years ago, has its headquarters and factories in Luanda. (macauhub)
