New vaccine factory for Ondersterpoort

Onderstepoort Biological Products, South Africa’s leading producer of livestock vaccines, will start on the construction of a new manufacturing plant, to be completed by 2020, for R347 million.

According to agriculture minister Senzeni Zokwana, “this will lead to large scale production of competitively priced vaccines manufactured under global quality standards; consistent availability of OBP vaccines and improved response to animal disease outbreaks; penetration of previously inaccessible markets and sustainable job creation in the fields of veterinary and biotechnological sciences.”

It is hoped that the new facility will improve OBP’s performance and production efficiencies of current products.

OBP will also increase the number of distribution points of its products in rural areas to nine.
