Cape Town has been identified as the home of a new development of therapeutic food production facility.

The facility is a joint venture between South Africa and a Norwegian based company and will distribute a ready to use product called eeZeePaste for malnourished children between the ages of six and 24 months.

This will transform the treatment of severe malnutrition.

Wesgro Head of Investment Promotion, Salman Kajie said the new facility has already created 21 high quality jobs and this number is expected to increase in the near future.

Kajie explained that the new facility has reinforced Cape Town’s position as a world-class food-processing destination.

Kajie highlighted that the agribusiness value chain is particularly well-established in the Western Cape, and this makes it particularly appealing to investors in the agri-processing and bio technology sectors.
