LAHORE (PR) – Coca-Cola Beverages Pakistan held a ground-breaking ceremony of its new Greenfield project in Multan. The ceremony was inaugurated by Senior Advisor of Chief Minister Punjab Zulfiqar Khosa, and attended by a huge gathering, including key government officials, media personnel, local dignitaries and Coca-Cola employees.

The Greenfield project in Multan is one of the three Greenfield projects being set up in the country by Coca-Cola Pakistan. A total amount of $379million will be invested over the next three years, with the funds being utilized for expanding the business and bringing about infrastructure and systemic improvements in the Coca-Cola system.  The energy efficient Multan plant will be fully equipped with state-of-the-art production equipment and product warehousing facility. 

“My vision for Punjab and Pakistan is to establish the province and the country as the ideal investment destination in the region. This can only be achieved if there is a concerted partnership between the public and private sectors. The role of the private sector in the development of the region and of the country is not only pertinent, but essential; but I reiterate my standpoint, that both must join hands and support each other,” said Senior Advisor of Chief Minister Punjab Zulfiqar Khosa.
