Developing domestic productive capacity was an integral part of Great Abyssinian’s approach of horizontal expansion. The six product lines that currently operate under the umbrella of the Great Abyssinia P.L.C are all proudly Ethiopian; all manufactured and prepared domestically using Ethiopian resources and know-how.
In fact, the Carbonated Soft Drink line, which goes to the market under a brand name Aby Splash, is the first CSD brand to be wholly owned and operated by Ethiopians. Also, the Bottled Water line was among the few pioneers in Ethiopia which introduced bottled water to the local market.
The company’s focus on productive capacity was reflected early when it decided to invest on a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility. Apart from its processing facilities located in Sululta and Ferensay (A.A), currently Great Abyssinia has finalized another processing plant in Sandaffa which will exclusively cater for its CSD and Juice Drink Beverage product lines.
