Coke set to start work on bottling plant in Karnataka.
Four years after Coca-Cola India paid the entire amount of Rs. 23 crore for 250 acres in Yadgir district of Karnataka to set up a bottling plant, the company is set to start work on the project following a go-ahead from the State Government.
The 250-acre plot is part of the 3,500-acres the State Government has identified to set up a food and pharma park in Yadgir.
'The Government took some time over the matter, but now they have told us we can start our work there soon. We are ready to start work on the bottling plant as soon as we are given a clean title for the land in Yadgir and after we have completed a thorough process of due diligence from the community and environment perspective,' T Krishnakumar, CEO, Hindustan Coca-Cola Beverages Pvt Ltd., told BusinessLine.
