President Edgar Lungu has officially commissioned the Zambian Breweries’ US$33 million state-of-the-art malting plant in the Lusaka South Multi Facility Economic Zone (LS-MFEZ). “This new facility, which is the first of its kind in Zambia, will enable locally grown barley to be processed into malt, the main ingredient for clear beer. It will contribute to creating business for farmer suppliers who will provide the brewery with barley, thus spurring economic growth and job creation, ultimately putting more money in people’s pockets,” said President Lungu during his address to assembled dignitaries, including Finance Minister Hon. Felix Mutati and Minister of Commerce, Trade and Industry Hon. Margaret Mwanakatwe.
