The world's largest bottler of Pepsi products, the Pepsi Bottling Group (PBG) has announced that it plans to acquire the Ontario-based, family-owned Kitchener Beverages Limited. The move is another step in increasing the company's presence in Canada.
 
Terms of the deal, which is expected to close in the next month, were not disclosed.
Kitchener, based in Kitchener, Ontario, operates one warehouse and employs about 65 people. It serves customers in towns such as Waterloo, Cambridge, Guelph, Stratford and Fergus, Pepsi Bottling said in a statement.

The planned deal is the latest acquisition by PBG, which has been on something of a buying spree of late.  In July it finalised its purchase of Canadian bottler Seaman's Beverages Ltd, located in the Canadian province of Prince Edward Island. The company is also in the process of buying Mexico's Pepsi-Gemex. It also bought Turkish Pepsi bottler Fruko earlier this year.
