Saboaria ALVO: Webcor to Launch a Soap Factory in AngolaJun 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.
