Modernized Zimbabwe Factory Churns Out Local Unilever Products

January 14, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
After modernizing its obsolete manufacturing facilities, Unilever Zimbabwe says its reliance on imported products has been cut in half. Using updated machinery and other infrastructure, the factory is now operating at 45 percent of capacity and makes Royco Usavi Mix, Geisha Soap, and Keybar – the so-called “money drivers”. More than 700 workers are employed on contract and on a permanent basis; another 400 work as merchandisers and service providers.
