Nigeria Breweries Plc has invested 5.1 billion Naira in a new automated PET line for packaging non-alcoholic drinks at its Ijebu Ode brewery, Ogun State.
The commissioning was done by the Executive Governor of Ogun State, Prince Dapo Abiodun, in the company of other distinguished guests such as the Honourable Minister for Trade and Investment, Otunba Niyi Adebayo and the Awujale of Ijebuland, Oba Sikiru Adetona.
The factory’s capacity
This PET line has the capacity to produce 24,000 bottles of drinks per hour. It is designed with the latest technology and is fully automated to meet world-class safety and quality requirements.
It is also expected to become a central supply and a critical enabler to Nigerian Breweries’ plans to export its drinks outside Nigeria to West Africa and beyond, satisfying the refreshment needs of millions of Nigerians and Africans.
Executive Governor of Ogun State, Prince Dapo Abiodun stated thus,
“We are the State with the largest concentration of industries in diverse sectors of the economy. Indeed, 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”.
