The Walvis Bay municipal council approved the lease of a tract of land to Winsalt Manufacturing, for the establishment of a salt lick product manufacturing factory.

A salt lick is a deposit of mineral salts used by animals to supplement their nutrition, ensuring that they get enough minerals in their diets.

The allocated one hectare is on a portion of Farm 38.

Leroy Victor, chairperson of the management committee, said that WinSalt Manufacture Pty Ltd was established in 2018, is a Walvis Bay-based and Namibian registered company.

“WinSalt made a presentation to council on 14 July 2021, where the company was introduced to councillors and the issue of the land was discussed.”

The company manufactures salt lick products for animals as well as tablets for dishwashers and water softening machines, and currently sells most of their products locally, however, they also export products to Angola, Zambia and Uganda.

The company has also exported sample pallets of their product to South Korea, Australia and Europe.

Victor said that WinSalt currently leases a facility in Walvis Bay which does not meet their requirements for the anticipated growth of the company.

“The lease of the property on Farm 38 will support the company’s growth. They intend to create efficient and productive use of the site, contribute to local economic growth, and promote environmentally sustainable land development practices.”

The company also intends to employ more staff and acquire more machines with the anticipated expansion.

“The expected expansion and concomitant development of land and facilities at Farm 38 of WinSalt will add significant economic value to the development of Walvis Bay and its people. The opinion is held that the application be supported,” Victor said.

The company applied for a lease period of 15 to 20 years.

“Other leases with time spans ranging from five to 20-year periods, have been approved by council for Farm 38 in the past and are currently in place.”

The leasing of the land at Farm 38 will be at a rental of N$8000 (0.80cents per m²), escalating by 10% per annum for a period of 10 years with an option to renew.

WinSalt must pay all rental and other municipal charges and accounts for the site by its monthly due date.

“Failing to do so will lead to the lease being cancelled without delay. This condition will be added to the lease agreement.”
