Southern Africa Division

As other major competitors disengaged from these countries, our teams in Cameroon, Congo and Gabon continued to support customers and prospects in order to secure our current partnerships and to win new ones.

South Africa, Ghana, Uganda and Zambia are now well established in the Inflight sector and enjoy strong reputations in their respective markets. They have renewed significant contracts and obtained new customers (Newrest South Africa), they have diversified their product lines in restaurant management for international organizations (Uganda) and schools (Ghana), and constructed two new units in Durban (South Africa) and Lusaka (Zambia). What is more, our subsidiary in South Africa is now 100% owned by Newrest Group.

Newrest is now well positioned to enter a new phase of growth in the region.
