We can confirm reports that a group of armed men held up the Distell Springs plant in the early hours of Monday, August 3, making off with 2 truckloads of Alcohol. The incident is being investigated by police.
Our priority at the moment is the health and safety of our employees who have been traumatised by this incident. We are relieved that neither staff nor security was hurt in the incident.
We are deeply concerned about the increasing reports of criminality surrounding the industry as legal trade has been closed down. We would like to assure South Africans that we are working with government to restore Industry to normalized trade where lives are protected, livelihoods are safeguarded and criminality in all its forms are tackled.
