Tanzania Breweries Limited builds fourth factory in Mbeya

Tanzania Breweries Limited (TBL), a subsidiary of South African Breweries - Miller (SABMiller) will spend $50million (about Sh59 billion) to build its fourth beer brewing plant in the country.

Tanzania Breweries Limited (TBL), a subsidiary of South African Breweries - Miller (SABMiller) will spend $50million (about Sh59 billion) to build its fourth beer brewing plant in the country.

The SABMiller managing director for Africa, Mr Mark Bowman, revealed this on Tuesday when he talked to the press during his tour in the country to see the company’s operations.

Procedures to purchase the plant from Germany were in final stages, he said.

The company’s project proposal has come out clean on the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) for its Mbeya plant.

About 150 people will be directly employed by the new brewery to be constructed at Mbeya’s Iyunga industrial area.

The plant will also yield a number of multiplier effects for the people of Mbeya and the entire Southern highlands zone of the country.

The actual construction process will start soon, and Mr Bowman hopes to see the plant becoming operational in the next few months.

’’It usually takes 20 to 24 months to complete, but we hope that it will be a little quicker than that.

We hope that we will have a brewery in Mbeya towards the end of the next calendar year,’’ said Mr Bowman.

He revealed that TBL was among very important operations for SABMiller which also operates in 31 other countries.

’’To SABMiller, Tanzania is very special. It is in the third position in terms of actual business performance among all the 32 countries that we have operations in.

We are in a very competitive market. We have a very strong position,’’ Mr Bowman said.
