"The Maghreb region has always been an important target market for us as we believe that it offers enormous growth opportunities for organizations in various industries," said Dominique Martin, Regional Commercial Director for Africa at Sidel. "We have been present in the region for more than four decades now, with our first filling machine having been installed in Algeria in 1975. Since then, we have worked to establish a solid presence in the entire Maghreb region and Algeria is now our biggest market by far."
Historically, Sidel has served around 135 clients in the Maghreb with almost half being based in Algeria. In terms of equipment, Sidel has installed more than 2,000 pieces in the region, 60 per cent of which were installed in Algeria alone.
Sidel mainly operates in the bottled water, carbonated soft drinks (CSD) and juices categories in Algeria and the Maghreb region with two-digit market share in each of those categories. Bottled Water is currently the most consumed beverage in the market, and is expected to continue to lead this trend. In the next three years, 70 per cent of the market growth is expected to come from the water category, with 65 per cent of the capacity increase coming from Algeria. In aseptic technology and due to the consumer demand for natural beverages, Sidel also provides Juices PET without conservatives.
