http://www.confectionerynews.com just informed that MarsWrigley will open a new factory near Nairobi (link). I remember visiting the Wrigley factory in Kenya already in the early 2000s, and it was quite impressive. They were producing chewing gum coated pellets under the brand “PK”.
This is gum with sugar. Sugarfree is still not mass-produced in SubSaharian Africa.
This new factory was already announced back in 2015, with expectations to start operations in early 2017. Well, finally here! Good to see new, large factories of gum.
