Exagris recently signed a contract with City Builders for MK600m to build a new warehouse and factory facility on the Exagris factory complex site. The factory is for Afrinut and will provide substantial storage and processing capacity to the company. It is expected that in over the next five years, Afrinut will reach 500MT per annum of processing groundnut for export to Europe and South Africa.
“This is the first stage to the full redevelopment of the Exagris Factory complex site. This factory will push the export of high quality, low aflatoxin groundnuts using the latest grading technology,” said Tim de Borde, Chairman of Afrinut.
The factory is expected to be completed by September, 2016.
