In the plan, the factory will employ 400, both educated and non-educated people to handle various responsibilities in the factory.

The factory plans to produce 4,000 creates per day “but if we see that there is market, we can increase the production by putting [in] two shifts, morning shift and evening shift”, Akoi explained.

According to Majur, the factory has hired an experienced Chinese water engineer, Chang, who has pledged to work hard to make sure that the Sudd Bottling takes the first position in South Sudan.

      Correction!((For his commitment))
      This is a done deal which will help people for their health but not only that, there will be an employment of Youth from the City level to State and not foreigners like what you guys used to do. It’s much more better than bringing in Alcohol Factory. This is agreat ways to development!!! WE Thanks You All!!
