Nigerian Breweries has announced opened a new 5.1 billion NGN ($13.3 million) “ultra-modern” automated PET bottling line at its Ijebu Ode brewery in Nigeria
The PET line, which is claimed to have been designed with the latest technology that meets world-class safety and quality standards, is expected to produce 24,000 bottles per hour, increasing capacity for Maltina and other drinks.
According to the company, the PET line was developed to supply current customers in the region and to expand the portfolio of non-alcoholic beverages outside Nigeria to West Africa and beyond.
“Today’s event is another testimonial to the successes of our administration’s business policies and programmes to improve on our ease of doing business ranking to ensure that new investments are attracted into our dear state just as existing businesses are thriving”, said Prince Dapo Abiodun.
