Its plant covers an area of 42 acres and employs four thousand and five hundred workers, and the company operates in more than ten African countries, with stress to Mozambique, Namibia and South Africa.
"Refriango " signed an agreement for a strategic partnership with the Portuguese Delta Cafés group, making Delta the official distributor of "Refriango" in Portugal. Distribution of the Blue brand is to start in June, and this process will cover all channels of the Portuguese market, through the launch, in a first phase, of orange, pineapple, passion fruit and guarana flavours. This partnership represents an important step toward the internationalization of the Blue drink brand.
