Coca-Cola Set to Build Fourth Plant

July 6 , 2019

Coca-Cola has announced that it is going to build a bottling plant in Sebeta at a cost of 70 million dollars. The plant in Sebeta town 25Km west of Addis Abeba will have the capacity to produce up to 70,000 cases of soft drinks a day. “When we finish the factory, it will be the biggest bottler in Ethiopia,” said Bruno Pietracci, president of Coca-Cola’s Southern & East Africa Business Unit. The plant is part of Coca-Cola’s planned 300 million dollars worth of investments in Ethiopia in the coming five years. The company also plans to build a fifth plant in Hawassa, 278Km south of the capital. The existing three factories have created 2,200 jobs, and the Sebeta plant is expected to raise that number to 2,700.
