Future Factory Score

The best project according to our Usine du Futur rating is the new brewery of the Tanzanian subsidiary of the Belgian Anheuser-Busch group, AB InBev. This plant will produce 12,000 metric tons (MT) in its first phase.
The plant will stimulate the agricultural sector by increasing local barley purchases from 5,000 tonnes to 12,000 tonnes, and then to 32,000 tonnes over a five-year period once the plant is completed. The construction phase of the megaproject will provide direct employment for around 70 people, 80% of them Tanzanians. The plant is designed as an all-in-one malting solution, with RimoMalt technology at its heart. RimoMalt is a fully modular, standardized malting technology developed by Swiss equipment manufacturer B├╝hler Group. This flexibility of production technology will enable TBL to develop its business efficiently and meet the growing demand for its products.
