The facility, which will be built in the mining town of Itabirito, will provide the company with good logistics, infrastructure and local economic conditions, it said today (4 July). The plant will be located on a 300,000 square-metre area of land and is expected to reach an annual capacity of 2.1bn litres by 2015.

All of the firm's soft drinks brands will be produced at the Itabirito plant, in order to meet the demands of the Market Mountain Region in Minas Gerais and Rio de Janeiro.

Construction is expected to take around 18 months and will incorporate "sustainability concepts", Coca-Cola FEMSA said.

The facility will take pressure off the firm's Belo Horizonte plant in Minas Gerais, which is currently at maximum capacity with no space for an extension.

Last week, Coca-Cola FEMSA announced that it has lined up a merger with the bottling operations of privately-held Mexican conglomerate Grupo Tampico.
