CocaColaChinaSouth African-based beverage company Coca-Cola Sabco has opened a new bottling plant in Matola Gare, Mozambique, with an investment of $130m.

The plant is part of a ten-year, $17bn investment plan by Coca-Cola in Africa, where it currently employs more than 70,000 people across 145 bottling facilities.

Coca-Cola chairman and CEO Muhtar Kent said: “We have continued to increase investment in our business in Africa and are proud to be one of the largest employers across Africa as well as Mozambique.

“This facility, which is proudly operated by our local partners from Coca-Cola Sabco, is the latest example of our continued commitment to refresh African consumers, while at the same time creating opportunities for enterprise and employment along our supply chain.”

The new green-field facility is equipped with modern energy, waste water recycling and building management systems.

It is the largest facility that Coca-Cola Sabco has developed across its seven-country market in Southern and East Africa.

The new Mozambique plant has 400 full-time employees and two bottling lines, including one for glass bottles and another for PET plastic bottles.

A third line for glass bottles could be added to the plant in the future.

The Coca-Cola Company, along with Ericsson, Medshare, Pentair, Philips, Solarkiosk and TIGO Rwanda, recently opened an ekocenter site in Ruhunda, Rwanda.

The solar-powered site will benefit up to 25,000 local residents with access to services, such as Wi-Fi, mobile charging, a retail store, a fully lit football field outside Rwanda’s capital of Kigali, improved medical resources and purified water.
