PepsiCo, the global snacks and drinks giant, has announced an investment of $64 million to expand its drinks concentrates factory in Uruguay.
Located in the free trade zone of Colonia, PepsiCo’s facility is one of eight in the world dedicated to the preparation of beverage concentrates for PepsiCo’s portfolio brands such as Pepsi, Seven Up, Mirinda and Gatorade. The facility, which has been operating in Uruguay for 30 years, employs around 200 people and exports to 21 countries in Latin America and other regions.
The investment will be used to expand the industrial area by 6,000 sq m and will continue to use state-of-the-art technology and meet the objectives of the global sustainability agenda, according to sources.
