MEREBANK’S CENTENARY BONANZA
MEREBANK has in its centenary year 2015 once again received the annual Monde Selection ‘Grand Gold’ and ‘International High Quality Trophy’ awards for its Extra Neutral Potable Alcohol.
Burger Pretorius, group export marketing manager – Ethanol, comments: “Although we have become accustomed to receiving these awards over many years, it remains a testimony to the combined efforts of the entire Merebank Team and we should all be extremely proud of the fact that our alcohol continues to receive this international recognition every year. Congratulations to all!”
Both the Merebank and Glendale distilleries have also set new alcohol and CMS production records in 2014/2015 compared to the previous financial year, with Merebank producing 50 766 kl and Glendale 7 267 kl of alcohol, and Glendale 25 282 tons of CMS (consolidated molasses solids, a fertiliser which is applied to the fields). Merebank’s LACSA plant also made a new weekly record of 195 tons.
