PRODUCTION CAPACITY & PRODUCTS’ PORTFOLIO
As the demand for soft drinks grows in Tanzania, Jambo Food Products Limited has heavily invested in providing soft drinks as well as water for the low- and middle-income earners in Tanzania and has extended supply to the Great Lakes region, East African countries and even overseas export. Part of the Directors’ visions for the company is to be able to cater for the needs of medium and low-income earners hence the pocket friendly price of our carbonated soft drinks and bottled drinking water. Our current installed capacity consists of three state of the art bottling lines with an average total capacity of 96,000 Bottles per Hour or 80,000 cartons per day @ 24 bottles for carbonated soft drinks, fruit juice drinks and drinking water. A fourth bottling line of a high capacity 36,000 BPH is being planned for commissioning in June 2021.

These agents are well trained in distribution and have wide knowledge of the market dynamics and have served the company for many years. They distribute mainly to retail outlets within the region and to other
regions in the country.
Rest of distribution is done through our company staff and sales trucks with designated route sales. This is mainly to retailers and channel out lets such as institutions, special events (weddings, sports gatherings etc.), supermarkets, motels, hotels and airlines.
The plant also handles a small percentage of walk-in customers who come to the plant to directly purchase products.
Self-Manufacture of Packaging Materials – Preforms & Closures
In order to achieve self-sufficiency and market competitiveness, Jambo Food Products Limited has leveraged on backward integration by investing in self-manufacturing of key packaging materials ranging from closures, shrink film and preforms. The impact of this strategy is minimisation of production costs. Plastic resin granules that are used for manufacturing of the bottling units are imported from approved suppliers in the Middle & Far East. They are put through a process of heat treatment and colour additives which determine the final packaging material.
The company is committed to producing products of the highest quality which meets and exceeds customers’ expectations. Testing and auditing of Quality attributes and procedures is done through the entire value chain to ensure that quality is in-built into the products. This is done cost effectively to minimize the Cost of Non-Conformance.
