After the decision of Tiger Brands Ltd to divest from the East African Tiger Brands Industries joint venture, the East African Group in 2017 acquired full control by purchasing the shares of Tiger Brands Ltd and thus the East African Lion Brands Industries PLC was born. The EALBI manufacturing facilities are in the Dukem ( Bishoftu ) Industrial Park, 70 acres of land area, about 40 Km west of Addis Ababa.
The Dukem Industrial Park has adequate infrastructure road; power; communication links; central warehouse weigh-bridge and water. The industrial park incorporates the major industries owned by the group such as the biscuit lines, macaroni line, supplementary food line, soap and detergent lines, printing and packaging lines, the tea blending and packing, and the coffee roasting and packing facility. The industrial park has 8,000 m2 central warehouse, which is used to stock raw materials and finished goods for all manufacturing facilities.
The EALBI has implemented the ISO 9001:2008 quality management system and continues to invest in modern technology for increased manufacturing capacity and efficiency. Comprising of structured and professional management, the East African Lion Brands Industries PLC currently employs over 1,500 employees greatly contributing to reducing the country’s employment with the vision of being the most admired Ethiopian branded consumer packaged goods company.
