Local firm boost beer quality with additional tanks
Local beer maker, Taula Beverages Company Limited, has added three more German-made beer tanks to its production process, which the company hopes will boost the quality of its product.
A Taula Beverage company spokesperson told the Samoa Observer that they have received three new beer tanks built in Germany, which he said were manufactured to the highest quality level.
He said the arrival of the additional beer tanks should translate to more consistent and accurate production of beer quality, and will enable their employees to have more space to increase and improve their export capacities as well as boost their ability to compete with international quality standards.
“Over the past four years we have been sourcing these tanks from the same company in Germany, and the latest three tanks now bring our total [to] 12 tanks on top of the 12 we had initially started with,” the spokesperson said.
“Since we brew and produce our beers under German practices and methods, it only made sense to incorporate German equipment and engineering into our processes.
“We believe taste and quality is the top priority, and want to have a product that every Samoan and local would be proud to call their own.”
The spokesperson also acknowledged various groups and companies that worked to make the shipment possible.
“We would like to thank the various groups and companies that have made it possible to ship, land and transport our tanks, especially Betham Brothers Enterprises Ltd, Electrical Power Corporation and the Police of Samoa.”
The company’s brewery in Falelauniu was audited and ticked the box for various aspects of its operation – all staff who focused on tank safety and ensuring vehicles, pedestrians and infrastructure were in the designated areas – exercised caution at all times.
In 2018, the company opened its warehouse in the heart of Apia to make access to their products more convenient for customers. The three-storey building comprises offices and storage area. Established in 2012, the Taula Beverages Company Limited is owned by Taimalie Charlie Westerlund, who is also the Managing Director.
