Continuously working towards the growth and development of the Namibian economy, Namib Mills plans to invest in a state of the art wheat mill from B¸hler, a Swiss-based company. This will help to grow Namibiaís GDP, earn foreign exchange through exports and ensure jobs security for current Namib Mills employees. The companyís vision for the new mill is to assist Namib Mills in expanding its footprint into neighbouring countries and add value towards the Vision 2030 of transforming Namibia into a food-secure nation and promoting competitiveness in the export sector.
Additionally, Namib Mills has invested in poultry in order to do import substitution and align their own growth strategy with the Governmentís policy of ìGrowth at Homeî.
