President Kenyatta launches Sh7 billion juice line at Nairobi Coca Cola plant

The president said the investment shows that the government’s priorities had struck a chord in the private sector.

He said the investment, under the Coca-Cola Beverages Africa (CCBA), compliments the nation’s Big Four Agenda which, according to him, provides solutions to the many problems that Kenyans have longed for answers over the years.

“The Big Four Agenda is our answer to these questions. Kenyans want a country that works for all of us: we want reasonably priced medical care; we want skilled jobs for our sons and daughters; we want to be entirely food secure; and we want dignified jobs for ourselves,” said the President who was accompanied by Deputy President William Ruto.

President Kenyatta said that the CCBA investment is a clear demonstration the government’s priorities had struck a chord in the private sector.

First in the region

The Hot-fill Juice facility, the latest and first such technology in the region, impacts over 30,000 local farmers during fruit harvest season and over 1500 employees working at the plant. The new Juice Line manufactures  a range of products including fruit juices, sports drinks, dairy fusions and iced tea.

President Kenyatta stated he was not only pleased with the huge investment and the direct jobs created by the plant, but also those created for suppliers and the farmers.

He said there is need to commercialize the country’s agriculture and raise its standards to both compete in the region and anywhere in the world.

President Kenyatta reiterated the Government’s commitment to continue building more infrastructure, and developing policies that are friendly to the manufacturers.
