Swazi mahewu (pty)ltd
Swazi Mahewu (Pty) Limited (“Swazi Mahewu”) was established in March 2011. Its primary focus is on the production and distribution of mahewu in Swaziland and the SADC region, trading under the “Mandla Mahewu” brand. Mahewu (also known as Mageu), is a traditional Southern African non-alcoholic drink made from maize and sugar.
The investment by Greystone Partners allowed Swazi Mahewu to invest in state of the art machinery, which allowed Swazi Mahewu to add product lines as well as increase monthly production. Swazi Mahewu produces and sells various flavours including banana, cream, pineapple, plain and emabele.
The exit occurred in October 2014 via a disposal to the majority shareholder.
