The Council for the Development of Cambodia (CDC) on December 4 announced that it had issued a final registration certificate for Inter-Mattrid Beverage (Cambodia) Co Ltd’s $78 million brewery/beverage plant.
The CDC noted that the facility is located in Dei Ith commune’s Sdao Kanleng II village in Kandal province’s eastern Kien Svay district and is expected to create 550 jobs.
The plant will be the Kingdom’s 13th brewery/beverage plant, data from Ministry of Industry, Science, Technology and Innovation show.
CDC approved two similar projects earlier this year.
It gave the nod to Hanuman Beverages Co Ltd’s $160.6 million brewery/beverage plant in Chhak Chhoeu Neang commune’s Trapaing Veng village in the province’s western Ang Snuol district in April.
In July, it gave the green light to Vattanac Brewery Co Ltd’s plan to launch an $87 million brewery in Prek Eng commune’s Roboh Angkanh village in Phnom Penh’s Chbar Ampov district, east of the Bassac River.
In addition to Inter-Mattrid Beverage Cambodia, Hanuman Beverages and Vattanac Brewery, there are 10 other registered existing brewery/beverage plant operators, according to the ministry.
These are Ana Water and Smiler Beverage Co Ltd, Asian Sunrise Co Ltd, Cambodia Brewery Ltd, Cambrew Ltd, Daun Penh Food and Beverage Co Ltd, Khmer Beverage Co Ltd, Far East Import Export Co Ltd, Kingdom Breweries (Cambodia) Ltd, Media GB Enterprise Co Ltd, and Phnom Penh Beer Co Ltd.
