LUANDA, ANGOLA — Sanabel recently tested its greenfield 350-tonne-per-day soft wheat flour mill supplied by Ocrim.

The plant in Luanda, Angola, is equipped with the latest technology to meet Sanabel’s needs for food safety and energy savings. Ocrim took into consideration specifications requested by the customer for a general optimization of the plant footprint.

The mill includes a 420-tonne flour silo and 150-tonne storage for byproducts, all managed by an automation system.

“In Africa, economic development is growing, and Angola is becoming an important point of reference for the entire continent, thanks to virtuous industries such as the Sanabel Group, but also many others that have the strength and foresight to invest and enhance one’s business not only for self-referential issues, but also for the collective community well-being,” said Fabrizio Baccinelli, sales director at Ocrim. “We at Ocrim are happy to have become Sanabel’s partners and to contribute to this economic rise, which also has a positive impact from a purely social point of view.”

Hassan Noureddine, chief executive officer of Sanabel Group, said the company was glad to have chosen Ocrim for this project.

“It’s the first time that we have entrusted ourselves to Ocrim,” he said. “We have always heard of the Cremona, Italy-based company asone of the most reliablein the world, and I must say that the result has exceeded our expectations. Ocrim is an attentive, innovative and punctual partner. The delivery times were fully respected, despite the complexities of the pandemic period. We at Sanabel have really appreciated it.”
