Producer and distributor of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, Castel Malawi Limited, has resounded calls for the government to review the tax regime on beer manufacturing for them to be able to increase production and become competitive on the international market.
This, the firm says, will prompt a massive recruitment drive that will support the governmentâs initiative to create over one million jobs within a year.
This comes against a background of the company retrenching over 450 of its employees in the past year.
The concerns were echoed when Minister of Labour, Ken Kandodo, visited Castel manufacturing plant at Makata in Blantyre.
Castel Malawi Managing Director, Herve Milhade, said the company has ambitious plans to grow its business in the country by four times but is constrained by the environment.
