Global soft drinks and snacks giant PepsiCo plans to invest $140m to build its tenth plant in Russia. The new plant will be constructed in the city of Azov, where the company recently completed a snacks plant.

Indra Nooyi, chairman and chief executive of PepsiCo.

Both plants in Azov are part of PepsiCo’s $1b investment programme in Russia, announced in 2009. In the previous ten years, PepsiCo invested $3b in Russia. Placing both plants on the same property will allow for more efficient logistics and leverage the advantages of production processes and technologies that save water and energy.

“Russia is one of our most exciting growth opportunities, and our $250m total investment in two plants in the Rostov region reflects our commitment to this key market,” says Indra Nooyi, chairman and chief executive of PepsiCo. “Our goal is to build a premier food and beverages company in Russia, and we are actively investing in manufacturing and logistics infrastructure to achieve that. Consistent with our ’Performance with Purpose’ vision, we also are broadening our portfolio by adding healthier products, implementing new environmental initiatives and taking steps to support the growth and development of our employees.”
