• Saboaria ALVO: Webcor to Launch a Soap Factory in Angola

    Jun 2021

    ​Webcor is indeed a driving force for structural change by proactively investing in the diversification of the local economy. With several industrial projects in the pipeline, Saboaria is yet another step towards the country's sustainable economic growth.


    The project includes the rehabilitation of an existing industrial building in the Industrial Area in Viana. The structure will consist of the entire production process, raw material storage, technical areas, and offices.


    Saboaria will produce blue Offenbach bar soap (also known as blue and white soap) with different packaging capacities, ranging from 250g to 1,5Kg,  and is estimated to be up and running in the first quarter of 2022. As part of Angola's emerging fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) market, this necessity item has been undersupplied in the country for many years. With this investment, Saboaria  Alvo intends to cover around 20% of the market needs with a production capacity of 13.000 tons per year.


    Besides reinforcing the country's autonomy with the local production of products from the basic food basket, the project will also benefit the transfer of technological knowledge to around twenty-five employees that will receive intensive training.
