Why is bottle filling a good business opportunity for entrepreneurs in Africa?
For long enough we in Africa were taught by Europe, USA and of late the Chinese, that it is better to show a man to catch a fish rather than giving him a fish…IT IS NOW TIME for entrepreneurs in Africa to move from just catching a fish to adding value to the fish!!!
More and more emphasis is being placed on community health and well-being by African leaders, by promoting safer consumption of beverages through sound processing and packaging methods as opposed to the consumption of unprocessed and possibly contaminated products.
This opens numerous opportunities to process and package products like milk, yoghurt, juice and water. The Elead People and its business partners have the professional skills and experience required to help make your business opportunity in liquid bottle filling a profitable success.
The Inyange Dairy in Rwanda, for example, installed our machines to provide safe dairy products for human consumption. It also serves as an outlet for farmers to sell their milk cooperatively. Our equipment is also suitable for smaller-scale operations. Our entry-level fillers don’t need a huge throughput of product to make the investment in equipment a viable option.
What is the competitive advantage of the Elead People?
It is the:
- Quality of our equipment, and
- Speed of our after-sales support, and
- Our knowledge
Our footprint in Africa?
We are not Europeans selling equipment into Africa. We are born and bred in Africa and understand Africa and the needs of our people.
Our equipment is currently being used in a number of African countries; ie South Africa, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Angola, Rwanda, Malawi, Zambia, Mozambique, Mauritius, Namibia and the latest project is in Tanzania.
