Matola Gare, Mozambique is now home to a new $130 million world-class bottling plant -- the latest milestone in a 10-year, $17 billion investment plan by the Coca-Cola system in Africa. At an official event to open the new facility, Coca-Cola Chairman and CEO Muhtar Kent noted that Coke has been investing in Africa for almost 90 years and is present in every African country with more than 70,000 employees across 145 bottling facilities.

The facility is operated by the local partners from Coca-Cola Sabco. The plant is said to be the largest green-field facility Coca-Cola Sabco has developed across its seven-country market in Southern and East Africa. It is equipped with fully computerised operations including energy, waste water recycling and building management systems.

The new Mozambique plant employs 400 full-time employees with two bottling lines – one for glass bottles and one for PET plastic bottles. A third line for glass bottles could be added in the future.
