JAPAN: Kirin to build second Shanghai plant - report
Kirin Beverage Corp. is looking to build its second soft drink plant in China, according to local press.
In a report last week, Jiji Press said that Kirin's new Shanghai plant, which will have an annual production capacity of 6m cases, is a move by Kirin to meet the growing demand for beverages available in plastic bottles in the country.
Last year, Kirin launched its first Shanghai-based facility with an annual production capacity of 4m cases, said the news service. The soft drinks company's second plant is reportedly due to begin operations in January 2009.
