US soft drinks giant The Coca-Cola Company is planning to invest some US$250m in restructuring marketing and distribution operations at its Indian bottler Hindustan Coca-Cola Beverages, according to a report in the Economic Times.

The report suggests the investment will allow Hindustan Coca-Cola to introduce new products. The company also intends to buy out excess capacity from franchisee bottlers, the newspaper suggested.

However, Hindustan Coca-Cola Beverages would not comment on the report.
