Wrigley, a subsidiary of Mars Incorporated, is to build a new $63 million dollar factory in Kenya. The new factory will help to create sustainable long-term growth in the region as part of Mars Incorporated’s wider commitment to building its business in Africa.

Works have already started on the state-of-the-art new facility to be built on a 20-acre piece of land in Mavoko, Machakos County. The plant is expected to create a number of new jobs when it starts production of household name brands in the first quarter of 2017. It will replace an existing plant located in Nairobi’s Industrial Area, which Wrigley has operated since 1972.

US-based Mars has more than $33 billion in sales from six diverse business segments: Petcare, Chocolate, Wrigley, Food, Drinks and Symbioscience.
