President Filipe Nyusi today officially inaugurated the Heineken Mozambique brewery, a private capital enterprise in Bobole, Marracuene district, Maputo province.
On the occasion, Filipe Nyusi urged project managers to boost the region’s development and support social responsibility actions.
The plant, located in Bobole, Marracuene district, has a production capacity of 800,000 hectolitres of beer per year. Its construction began in December 2017
The venture represents an investment of about US$100 million.
Heineken International’s director general for Africa, Middle East and Eastern Europe, Boudewijn Haarsma, expressed the group’s enthusiasm for starting to produce in Mozambique, a country which he said had promising long term prospects.
“With our extensive experience and business in Africa, we also aim to be partners for Mozambique’s economic growth, as we are in the rest of the continent,” said Haarsma.
The Heineken Mozambique subsidiary started operating in 2016 with a sales and promotion office and by importing beers such as Heineken, Amstel, Amstel Lite and Sagres in order to extend the range of products available to Mozambican consumers.
