Maximum Group is developing a unique industrial, International Agri City and Fresh Produce Market in order to enable logistics, light industrial, food processing and production in Protea Glen, Soweto.
A new Industrial and International Agri City – West Rand Mega Park – will address these needs. This facility will serve the immediate needs of Klerksdorp, Fochville and Western Gauteng – Westonaria, Randfontein, Krugersdorp as well as Lenasia, Eldorado Park.
Western Gauteng is known to be called ”the produce basket of the province” – as some 40% of all fresh produce supplied in Gauteng comes from this region. Currently, there is no Industrial, Agricultural facility or Fresh Produce Market to meet the region’s needs.
City Deep Fresh Produce market is 40 kilometers away. The distance and time required to reach it adds significantly to the cost and delivery time and charges of the produce.
West Rand Mega Park has been designed with Industrial Symbiosis in mind
What is Industrial Symbiosis?
In nature there are no landfills and thus Industrial Symbiosis is inspired by natural systems – One’s waste is another one’s resource.
It promotes resource efficiency and improves profitability for everyone’s benefit.
Industrial Symbiosis is a multiple win for everyone: it creates jobs, generates revenue, saves money, reduces waste!
