The inauguration of new manufacturing facilities in the municipality of Kilamba Kiaxi in Luanda, Angola will allow dairy company Lactiangol to double its production capacity, chairman José César Macedo said on Monday.
Funded by the Banco de Desenvolvimento de Angola, the US$127 million invested has made it possible, in addition to doubling production with the installation of new lines, to ensure quality standards and to update technical services.
With this investment, Lactiangol will produce 1,200 kg of butter per hour, 7,000litres of liquid yoghurt per day, 5,000 litres of natural yoghurt per day, to process and bottle 13,000 litres of UHT milk per hour and to receive 20,000 litres of raw milk per hour.
The Minister of Industry, Bernarda Martins, noted the importance of the project in Angola and that it follows up on the programme for distribution of school meals started by Lactiangol.
Established in March 1994, Lactiangol, with 290 employees, over the years has become Angola’s main dairy manufacturing unit, producing a range of products notably UHT milk, school milk, chocolate milk, natural and flavoured yoghurt, liquid yoghurt, pasteurized butter, juices and ice creams.
