Hon Amelia Kyambadde, Minister of Trade, Industry, and Cooperatives commissioned the Hwan Sung factory
On 14th February, Hon Amelia Kyambadde, Minister of Trade, Industry, and Cooperatives commissioned the Hwan Sung factory that produces Polystyrene foam trays for packaging fruits, fish and meats, etc in Kyambogo. This kind of factory is the first of its kind as such trays were imported from Dubai and China.
As farmers invest in agriculture, the demand for the packaging industry and supermarket business have hence culminated in the growth of the packaging items, which also support the BUBU policy.
Jason Suh, MD of Hwan sung said the Polystyrene factory has been in operation since December last year with a target of 200 workers and has a capacity of 16-18 tones on monthly demand in the market. He went ahead to say the factory capacity is fully operational and 800kg can be produced daily with ready markets in Rwanda, Burundi, South Sudan, and eastern Congo.
Lydia Nanfunka who has worked for Hwan Sung Limited for 7 years, says the company has changed her life and has grown.
The company has gone ahead to expand its line to manufacturing Fish Boxes.
The ED of pledged to be supportive of the product by one imposing the BUBU mark on imports and second how all goods should have a distinctive mark/ Quality mark. These polystyrene products will go a long way in ensuring that it offers safely packaged goods and quality exports for the region and international market.
