Rwanda leading agro based industry, Inyange industries, has started negotiating deals that will see it export its product distribution to the South Sudan and Tanzania markets.
Inyange industries has products ranging from natural juices of passion, pineapple, apple, and mango and mineral drinking water to processed milk and milk products including yoghurts and packed fresh milk in different quantities.
The industry buys from Rwandan farmers is raw milk, passion fruits and pineapples.
Once this deal is sealed, the Managing Director of Inyange industries, Senganda Sudadi Kayitana says that this would be a path to utilizing the entire plant production capacity.
The Inyange industries have already been able to extend its products to markets in Burundi, Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Uganda, where it has already established distribution agents.
the plant has installed production equipment to enable the production of a capacity of 100, 000lt of milk a day but only exploits about 40 percent of this capacity currently.
Kayitana considered this level of production as under utilization of the available capacity, which has been as a result of a small consumption market for our products in the local market; however, once the plant goes regional and continues to seek establishment in other regional markets, it is expected to utilize the plant at its maximum capacity.
In order to meet modern standards, and in a bid to make processed milk more available and affordable to Rwandans, the plants recently launched a new milk product distributed in automatic vending milk dispensers together with Tetrafino packed whole and low fat milk.
