Today we are announcing a reorganisation in Sub-Saharan Africa. These changes will ensure our Sub-Saharan Africa business continues on a healthy growth path, delivering affordable nutrition to as wide a population as possible.
Effective August 1 2018, the Central West Africa Region (CWAR) will become a key market for the Group. Angola and the Democratic Republic of Congo, currently part of the Equatorial Africa Region (EAR), will join CWAR.
We will also expand the Southern African Region (ZAR) to include the Horn of Africa, Southern, Eastern and Island clusters of EAR. The new, enlarged region, headquartered in Johannesburg, will be renamed the Eastern and Southern African Region (ESAR).
