Dar es Salaam, Tanzania - Tanzania Breweries Limited (TBL) has announced an expenditure of about US $62 million (Tsh 82 billion) for the construction of a modern facility which is set to boost production capacity by 22 percent.

The construction of TBL's modern facility in Mbeya will make this Tanzania's fourth SAB Miller factory. SAB Miller is now ranked second among the largest beer producers in the world.
Other plants owned by SAB Miller, a South African company, which are operated by its local subsidiary Tanzania Breweries Ltd, are located in the lake zones of Mwanza and Arusha. The main plant is located in Dar es Salaam.

Speaking to East African Business Week in Mbeya last week during the event where President Jakaya Kikwete laid a foundation stone to symbolize the construction of the facility, Mr. Robin Goetzsche, TBL Managing Director, said that construction of the modern facility will not only add the number of factories in the country but it would be used to boost the production capacity of beer to 350 million hectolitres per year.
