The province of Maputo will have a new agro-industrial park, with construction starting in the first half of next year. The new park will be built on a nine hundred hectare site in the Mauvane area, Moamba district, and is costed at about US$52 million in its first phase.
The first phase comprises the construction of three chicken batteries with a total capacity of 960,000 chickens, a feed factory, two slaughterhouses, a system for the conservation of agricultural products, water and electricity supply, and the opening of streets.
Tomás Almeida, one of the project’s proponents, said that Moamba’s agro-industrial park will comprise different production units focussing mainly on chicken, milk products and eggs, and would aim to reduce imports.
Also in Maputo, the foundation stone of a brewery in the district of Marracuene was laid this Monday, kicking off a Dutch Heineken Group project worth US$100 million dollars and expected to generate at least two hundred permanent and perhaps 13,000 indirect jobs.Source: Rádio Moçambique
