Delta corporate affairs executive Patricia Murambinda said that the soft drinks bottling plants had been adversely affected by the challenges in securing raw materials, leading to extended periods of production stoppages and out of stock situations. Murambinda had this to say
Delta bottling plants have been running intermittently during the last six months due to the limited availability of imported raw materials.
Of late, the factories have been on shutdown since late November, as evidenced by the current limited market supply of soft drinks.
We were availed a small allocation of foreign currency by the Reserve Bank, which will allow the plants to run for a week leading to Christmas.
The shortage of forex is well articulated and is beyond the control of the company. In short, we are unfortunately heading for a dry festive period. We can only apologise to our valued customers and consumers.
