Over the past 20 years, the total investment has exceeded RMB 3 billion. Compared with the time when we could only provide about 10 kinds of products of Coca-Cola, Sprite, and Fanta with our 4 production lines, there are 11 production lines currently providing more than 150 products to all consumers in Sichuan, such as soda water, juice, drinking water, tea, coffee, functional beverages, and dairy products.
Ushering in the 20th anniversary of COFCO Coca-Cola Beverage (Sichuan) Co., Ltd., RMB 400 million is invested into equipment this year. In addition to the new bottled water production line, there will be another 2 lines with top-notch technology putting into operation in succession this year. Meanwhile, more than 10 new brands will enter the market, and more investment will be added to promote the market prosperity, energy conservation, emission reduction, and precision poverty alleviation.
COFCO Coca-Cola is full of confidence in the future development in Sichuan. In the next five years, it plans to invest more than RMB 2 billion in the production equipment so as to expand the production capacity. Moreover, it will increase investment in the market and introduce more high-quality products to meet the consumption upgrading demand in Sichuan.
