27 April 2015

A factory for the processing of mango and tomato into jam and paste should start operating next June in Guinea-Bissau, said Malam Djudju Mané, the director indicated by the Guinean government to manage the unit.

The factory’s construction, which occupies a 1 hectare area and is located in the town of Safi, 15 kilometres from Bissau, were financed by a credit line from an Indian bank.

Malam Djudju Mané said the factory, to be built by an Indian company, will have the capacity to produce 3,000 tons of tomato paste and eight tons of mango jam per day.

Prime Minister Domingos Simões Pereira, who visited the factory worksite this weekend, said the credit line opened by the Indian bank had an amortisation period of 25 years. (macauhub/GW)
