INDONESIA: Asahi Group sets sights on non-alcoholic beverage growth
Asahi Group first partnered with Indofood in 2012
Asahi Group is targeting sales of IDR5tn (US$430m) for its non-alcoholic beverage joint-ventures in Indonesia by 2017 as demand in the country grows.
In a joint statement yesterday (24 February), the Japanese firm and Indonesian partner PT Indofood CBP Sukses Makmur said Indonesia's non-alcoholic beverage market is expected to increase by 85% over the next three years to IDR190tn. To help capture the growth, the companies will finish construction of a new beverage plant by the end of this year, taking their total number of plants to 17.
“Non-alcoholic beverage is one of the fastest growing categories in the Indonesian market,” the statement said.
The new plant will be run by PT Tirta Makmur Perkasa, a bottled water JV set up by Asahi and Indofood in October.
Asahi and Indofood also run PT Prima Cahaya Indobeverages, a bottler of PepsiCo's carbonated and fruit juice drinks.
Asahi first linked up with Indofood in 2012.
