Pepsi to set up manufacturing plant in Kenya

Pepsi is set to invest in a new manufacturing plant in Kenya.

PepsiCo Inc.’s Kenyan unit will build a manufacturing plant in the capital, Nairobi, at a cost of 2.4 billion shillings ($28.4 million), Business Daily reported.

Construction of the facility is expected to begin by April 15, the Nairobi-based newspaper said, citing Butch Moldenhauer, general manager of SBC Kenya Ltd. PepsiCo acquired SBC in 2009, it said.

Joe Jacuzzi, a PepsiCo spokesman, didn’t immediately respond to a voicemail requesting comment when contacted outside regular business hours.
