Singha Corp has announced plans to add a seventh plant to its operations specifically for bottled water and carbonated beverages.

Speaking to just-drinks today (12 October), a spokesperson for Singha confirmed that the brewer is planning to build a plant in Thailand, specifically for bottled and soda water that will be running within the next three years.

The spokesperson said: "There are seven other plants already, but one will stop producing and this one will replace it as the seventh. It will be solely for bottled water and soda."

"Although approximately 70% of our core business is beer and 30% water and juice, the non-alcoholic drinks category are of increasing importance," the spokesperson added.

"The premium bottled lager category is doing well", explained the spokesperson, "but it is also becoming an increasingly saturated market, which means that it might not always be the case."
