The company continues to develop its market offering to ensure it remains relevant while providing value.

In June 2016, Cirebelle set out to establish a world-class laboratory, which is now fully functional. According to Sean Mashimbyi, Cirebelle’s analytical services supervisor, the facility boasts some of the most technologically advanced laboratory equipment, including a Clarus 580 Gas Chromatograph and Spectrum Two IR Spectrometer from PerkinElmer. The quality control laboratory also boasts an oil content apparatus, which is a highly specialised instrument and possibly one of only two in the country. This is used to quantify the quality of Cirebelle's wax-based products.
