Pepsi-Cola Jamaica Bottling Company is looking offshore for new business.
The beverage company will be investing about US$10 million on a new bottling line ahead of its push into regional markets, alongside a US$1.5 million spend on drink dispensers or soda fountains and coolers deployed throughout Pepsi’s retail channels in Jamaica.
General Manager Miguel Alameda wants to grow production by 20-25 per cent from its current base of around one million cases per month – a target he hopes to hit in three to four years.
