PepsiCo India to strengthen beverage production with new INR 1,266 Crore facility in Madhya Pradesh

As part of its expansion strategy in India, PepsiCo India has announced plans to invest INR 1,266 crore in establishing a flavor manufacturing facility in Ujjain, Madhya Pradesh. Spanning 22 acres, the facility is expected to significantly enhance PepsiCo’s beverage production in the country, create employment opportunities, and have a positive impact on the local economy.

The new factory is expected to be functional by the first quarter of 2026, with construction expected to start in 2024.

PepsiCo India & South Asia CEO Jagrut Kotecha said, “With backing from the state government, we aim to expand our footprint while making impactful progress in improving the socio-economic landscape of the region.”

George Kovoor, Senior Vice President of Beverages at PepsiCo India, stated that the new facility will be the company’s second flavor manufacturing plant in India.

PepsiCo’s first flavor manufacturing facility in India is located in Channo, Punjab.

PepsiCo India stated that in alignment with its global sustainability objectives, the new manufacturing facility will run entirely on renewable energy sources, resulting in a significant reduction of 1.9 metric tonnes of carbon footprint per day.

Utilizing zero liquid discharge technology, the plant aims to achieve around 90% overall water efficiency. The company ensures responsible water resource management by replenishing 100% of the water used at the facility.
