Coca-Cola Icecek has confirmed the opening of a new production plant in the Central Asian country of Tajikistan.

The plant, in the capital Dushanbe, started production in May, a spokesperson for Icecek told just-drinks today. Financial and capacity details have not been disclosed.

The plant was first reported on in 2012, when an agreement was reached on a memorandum of understanding between the Coca-Cola bottler and Tajikistan's investment committee.

Last week, another Coca-Cola bottle, Coca-Cola Enterprises, announced its merger with the German unit of the Coca-Cola Co and with Coca-Cola Iberian Partners to form Coca-Cola European Partners.
