Drinks company Nuvi Moçambique considers building factory

16 September 2013

Nuvi Moçambique, a Mozambique-based drinks factory, is considering making new investments in the country, said managing director João Sampaio, cited by daily newspaper Notícias.

The company has invested over US$2 million in Mozambique and Sampaio said that if further investments were considered viable, a soft drinks factory could be built in Mozambique.

“We meet the needs of Mozambican consumers via Angola, but that’s not the most profitable way because it involves transport and customs charges and as soon as there is a minimum level of sale to justify the factory in Mozambique, that will be the next option,” said Sampaio.

The director, who is responsible for promotion, also said that the sales target for Mozambique had been exceeded – 2 million litres – which was the initial target for 2012.

Nuvi’s most famous and popular brands in Mozambique are fruit-based soft drink Blue, energy drink Speed and Tutti juices.

The group that controls Nuvi Moçambique has an industrial complex in the south of Luanda, Angola, covering 130,000 square metres and has a production capacity of 1 billion litres, or 130 million boxes per year and has 21 filling lines for a variety of packages – Pet, Tetra-Pak, Bag-in-Box, glass and cans.
