Unilever Jolly green giant
Le Grand Bleu, who as you will recall, has under its sustainable living plan stated its desire to double revenue while reducing the carbon footprint, is increasing its geophysical (ahem) footprint down here in Mzansi, having turned the sod, if that’s what you do, on an R800million factory in Anderbolt, Boksburg, next door to the main DC. The plant should start running product off the lines by 2014 and will be producing such household stalwarts as Omo, Skip, Handy Andy, Domestos, Comfort and Sunlight. The plant will be a humdinger, deploying the latest technology and ideas to create a low energy, environmentally efficient factory that sends zero waste to landfill. And that’s not all – another 200bar is going on upgrading existing plants, for a total, sing it, of one cool billion.
Comment: Another vote of confidence in our country and our economy, at a time when every bit helps.
