Tanzanian producer, Mbeya Cement Company, has improved production, quality and quantity of its product in an effort to capture East African Community market demand.

Speaking to the East African Business Week from Mbeya last week during the official launch of the new bag re-branded event, the firm’s General Manager Mbuvi Ngunze said the change in cement packaging material is part of reforms taken by the firm to improve product and services to the customers. 

“We have decided to enter in the East African Community market with high quality products and boost production in order to meet the market demand,” said Ngunze, adding that the new bag we are officially launching today is strong enough to prevent any leakage.

Deputy Minister Nyalandu was impressed with the progress of the cement firm which as of now is able to able to produce on average over 300,000tpa of cement. “This figure leaves no doubt in my mind that Tanzania will in the near future be a major supplier of this important building material to neighboring countries”, said Nyalandu.
