Simba opens new advanced factory in KZN Print

Leading South African snack manufacturer Simba has officially commissioned its new state-of-the-art manufacturing plant in Prospecton.. The new plant was ceremonially opened by Simba's Business Unit CEO, Alan Henderson and supply chain director, Rod.

Simba manufacturing director, Andrew Havinga said, "This is a very proud moment for Simba and its employees. Simba is one of our country's most-loved brands and has been a valued part of the South African landscape for over 58 years, which is why we are pleased to open this world-class manufacturing site and to welcome our new 90-strong team members.

"The KZN team includes many skilled technicians with approximately 60 percent of the current staff complement consisting of talented graduates joining us fresh from local tertiary institutions."

The Prospecton plant will enable Simba, which is a subsidiary of PepsiCo, to meet the increasing demand for its Lays and Simba potato chip products.

The advanced technology employed will ensure the plant produces to its optimal performance levels while still operating as a highly efficient and environmentally stable operation.

This includes processes to increase the efficiency of the machinery while reducing electricity consumption and ensuring increased water reuse. The plant also has a strict recycling initiative in place and aims to achieve approximately 90% recyclable waste in the first year, which will significantly reduce what is sent to local landfill sites.
