Coca-Cola 3E to invest 8.0 mln euro in new Avra mineral water production line

Coca-Cola 3E on Wednesday announced an 8.0-million-euro investment in its Avra natural mineral water bottling plant in Aigio, western Peloponnese. The investment is for the addition of a new, ultra-modern production line for its products Avra PET 500ml, Avra Bloom 330ml and Active Cap 750 ml.

This will be the fastest production line for bottled water in the Coca-Cola HBC Group, with a capacity of 72,000 units per hour, while also achieving water and energy savings exceeding 10 pct. It will additionally help to reduce the total plastic used in Coca-Cola 3E units through the use of lightweight PET in all Avra mineral water lines, with 27 pct less plastic used for Avra Bloom and 18 pct for Avra Active Cap.
