New dough divider

Founded in 1995, Maroc Buns Industries (MBI) is an industrial bakery based in the technopole zone of Mohammed V Airport in Nouaceur (Casablanca region). MBI is the exclusive supplier of bread to McDonald’s Morocco.


To increase its efficiency and meet the growing market demand, MBI has sought technical assistance and financing from Green Economy Financing Facility II for its investments aimed at optimizing its bread production chain. The choice of equipment to be acquired also illustrates MBI’s ongoing commitment to reducing its carbon footprint, with particular emphasis on reducing the “energy consumption/quantity of dough processed” ratio.


This investment involves the acquisition of a RollFlex dough divider with more advanced technological features, allowing the dough to be divided with a precision of 1%, compared to the previous version with a precision of 5%. The new machine enables a 60% capacity increase for a similar energy consumption compared to the replaced divider.


Thanks to this investment financed through the Green Economy Financing Facility II program, MBI has strengthened its competitiveness while achieving a significant decrease in its annual energy consumption by 58 MWh, representing a reduction of 38% compared to the use of the old machine. This initiative has also contributed to a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 33 tons of CO2 equivalent annually.



Green Economy Financing Facility (GEFF) in Morocco is a green economy financing program, implemented by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), will provide financing to Moroccan private enterprises through local financial institution partners. Supported by the European Union (EU), the Green Climate Fund (GCF). It will enable local companies to invest in green technologies, reduce their costs through climate adaptation measures, energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies.
