PepsiCo, the global snacks giant, has announced plans to expand its manufacturing operation in Cabo de Santo Agostinho, north-eastern Brazil, with a new production line, creating over 300 jobs.
The new line will boost production capacity by 30% and allow the manufacture of products under the Torcida brand, as well as for the Cheetos, Cebolitos and Fandangos brands.
Commenting on the move, PepsiCo Brazil director of operations Marcelo Zanetti said: “The Northeast region is strategic for PepsiCo, which is why we have made continuous investments there. Proof of this is that our production capacity in the last four years has increased by more than 50%, including the implementation of the new Torcida line.”
Construction is underway and is scheduled to be completed by May 2024.
