The Pepsi Bottling Group, the largest Pepsi bottler in the world, has announced it has finalized its acquisition of the Canadian soft drinks bottler, Seaman's Beverages Limited. The financial details of the acquisition were not disclosed.

Seaman's Beverages, based in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, has one manufacturing facility and two warehouses and employs about 100 people. The deal will increase further Pepsi Bottling's strong position in the Canadian market. The New York-based company already produces and distributes around 85% of all Pepsi drinks products sold in Canada.

Seaman's not only bottles brands such as 7-Up and Pepsi but also has its own line of premium soft drinks, including Seaman's Classic Birch Beer and Lime Rickey. At this stage, it is not clear whether Pepsi Bottling plans to continue producing these brands. Seaman's also bottles Naya bottled water and Ocean Spray juices.
