The business group, which has already started cereal planting on about 80 percent of the land earlier this year, has made this investment with the aim of boosting the resources and the national economy and reducing the import of raw material for the production of beer.

Speaking to ANGOP, the director of the New Angola Beer Company - Nocal, Gilles Leclerc, said that the import was a constraint shared by the entire beverage industry in the country.

In the case of Nocal, the factory, with a monthly production of about 10 million liters of beer, depends on the import of malt and hops, as well as all parts for line maintenance.
