Coca-Cola Partner Extends Presence in Africa with Third Plant Installation

- Lean - Jul 10, 2014

Sidel has been chosen to install a complete PET line for Coca-Cola’s Minute Maid product as well as for carbonated water in Senegal.

The global provider of liquid packaging solutions has been awarded the contract by Societe Industrielle Agro-Alimentaire (SIAGRO), Senegal’s leading manufacturer of mineral water and Coca-Cola’s co-packing partner, making it the third installation at the plant since the turn of the century.

Mohamed Fares, Owner and President of SIAGRO Group, said: “Our history of collaboration with Sidel dates back to the early days of our foundation, when we started our beverage business with a small line in 2000. Since then, we have built a solid partnership based on trust, reliability and loyalty.”

The new PET line will have the capability to prodfuce more than 12,000 0.33L bottles and 10,800 1L bottles of Minute Maid juice, an hour, while it will also comprise Sidel’s advanced technological and efficiency solutions.  

SIAGRO is more than aware of these benefits having employed the solutions in its still water PET line in the past, and the new SBO6 Universal 2eco blower is equipped with an optimised oven-configuration which could result in a 43 percent reduction in the use of electricity, through heat and light savings.

Alexandre Alcantra, General Manager of Kirene, SIAGRO's leading mineral water brand, said: “In our business, high quality is the key to succeed and expand locally and regionally.

“With Sidel's technology and innovative solutions, we have managed to secure for ourselves a leading position in the local market and implement best practices for successful regional expansion.”

Olivier Fraisse, Regional Commercial Director for Sidel in Africa, added: “Since its early days of inception, SIAGRO has been giving high significance to the aftersales services, which they have learned in our 14 years of working together is something they can fully depend on.

“Over the past few years, we have made rapid progress towards expanding our presence in Africa and today we are proud to be at even closer proximity to our customers.”
