Pepsi Cola Products Philippines Inc. (PCPPI), the exclusive manufacturer of PepsiCo beverages in the country, recently opened its newest line in Santo Tomas, Batangas.
The line will boost PCPPI’s production of carbonated soft drinks in highly recyclable polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles.
“After six months of preparation, the newest Southern Tagalog Regional Office (STRO) line is proudly PCPPI’s most advanced bottle production facility yet. This addition will address the growing needs for refreshing drinks of the public who are already recovering from the effects of the pandemic,” said Frederick Ong, PCPPI president and chief executive officer.
PCPPI said the new line increases its overall PET production by 30 percent.
It added that the new line, inaugurated last January 7, adheres to sustainable business practices, as PET remains one of the highly-recyclable and sustainable plastic materials in the world.
Four lines are now fully operational in STRO.
