DONG NAI — Food and beverage producer Pepsico last Wednesday inaugurated its new manufacturing plant in southern Dong Nai Province.
Covering an area of over 10ha in the Long Binh Industrial Zone of Bien Hoa City, the US$45-million plant was designed with a capacity of 180 million litres per year.
It was taken over from San Miguel Poor Foods (Viet Nam) last month as part of Pepsico's expansion campaign, said General Director Shekhar Mundlay.
The 6th of its facilities in Viet Nam, the plant will launch carbonated and non-carbonated drinks including Pepsi, 7up, Mirinda, Twister, Sting and Aquafina.
In the past three years, PepsiCo Viet Nam has enhanced its investment in the Cuu Long (Mekong) Delta. Its Can Tho plant has operated since 2009 and Pepsico Bac Ninh is expected to come into operation at the middle of this year.
