CCA is growing in Indonesia

Coca-Cola Amatil has confirmed it will invest about AUD500m (US$492m) in Indonesia over the next three or four years.

A spokesperson for the Sydney-based bottler told just-drinks today (16 May) that the investment will go into production and distribution capacity, innovation and cold-drink equipment. This year alone, CCA will pump AUD200m into the country, which, from January to April, helped offset losses in CCA's domestic market

In a trading update, released this month, Group MD Terry Davis called Indonesia a “highlight” of the year so far after it posted a 10% sales and volumes jump.

Indonesia has a 250m population and is predicted to be one of the world’s top ten economies by 2025, the spokesperson said. 

CCA is not the only international beverage company targeting Indonesia. Last year, Japanese brewer Asahi signed two JVs with an Indonesian company to market and distribute non-alcoholic drinks in the mainly Muslim country.
