The Second Sweet Salone Container Shipment from Freetown

13.12.21

This past weekend a container full of Sweet Salone goods was shipped out of Freetown port, the second container this year! The Aurora team has been preparing the container for some time and were thus very excited to see the container looking full and ready for shipment at the Freetown Port last week. The goods are making their way, not only to Reykjavík but also to Rotterdam and London this time and by which you can tell that Aurora and the Sweet Salone project are expanding their borders (more on that soon)! Below you can see some pictures of the process!
