Coca-Cola bottler to acquire Malawi soft drinks business

Blantyre – Coca-Cola Beverages Africa anticipates commencing operations in Malawi as soon as all regulatory requirements have been successfully concluded. 

This follows the recent approval by COMESA of the transaction between Coca-Cola Beverages Africa and Castel (Southern Bottlers Limited, or SOBO) to acquire Castel’s soft drinks business through Coca-Cola Beverages Africa’s subsidiary Coca-Cola Beverages Limited (CCBL).

Once operations commence, the soft drinks business will have its head office in Lilongwe. Both Blantyre and Lilongwe plants will serve as production, distribution and logistics sites for the newly-formed Coca-Cola Beverages Africa subsidiary.

Malawi is a new territory for Coca-Cola Beverages Africa which has a strong track record in the soft drinks category on the continent and is committed to sustainable growth in existing and new territories.
