PepsiCo is looking to expand one of its production plants in India, as part of its ongoing investment in the country's emerging soft drinks market.

PepsiCo has confirmed to just-drinks today (27 July) that it wishes to expand its existing Zahura site in the Hoshiarpur district of Punjab.

"We are in dialogue with the Punjab government for capacity expansion for beverages manufacture at our existing Zahura site," said the CEO of PepsiCo India Beverages, Praveen Someshwar. "We will be able to share more details once we get the clearance.”

One report this week said that the expansion would cover 30 acres of land and could cost INR2bn (US$45.4m).

Last month, PepsiCo and Hindustan Unilever announced that they have reintroduced RTD tea brand Lipton Ice into India, seven years after it was withdrawn from the market.
