Dutch beer giant Heineken NV on March 13 officially opened its first brewery in Mozambique.
The plant, which is in the Mozambique capital of Maputo, is the result of a $100 million investment by Heineken. It employs 200 people and has a production capacity of 800,000 hectoliters.
The brewery will produce five of Heineken's local and international brands: Txilar, Amstel, Sagres, Strongbow and its flagship namesake brand.
The company said it sent the plant's employees to Heineken's operations in Portugal, South Africa, Nigeria and Ethiopia for training.
