The new line, to be installed in the company's Jundiai, Sao Paulo facility, will produce up to 72,000 bottles per hour. It is expected to increase production volume at the plant by around 12%, the company said yesterday (28 September).

"With this new line of PET bottles to produce 25, 40 and 60cl, we will expand our ability to meet the demand for this type of container," said Coca-Cola FEMSA's director of supply chain, Carlos Gonzalez.

The expansion will result in the creation of 31 jobs.

Last week, Coca-Cola FEMSA announced the acquisition of fellow Mexico-based Coca-Cola bottler Grupo CIMSA in a deal worth MXN11bn (US$834m).
