Coca Cola acquires Aquasavanna producer
By Staff Reporter
Coca Cola Beverages Africa has been issued a requisite regulatory approval to acquire Fairy Bottling Zambia Limited and will commence its first day of operations effective today, February 4, 2019.
Fairy Bottling is the company which produces AquaSavana and Super Maheu as well as other soft drinks trademarks.
With this agreement, CCBA has acquired the production facility in Lusaka and the sales and distribution infrastructure for the domestication of its operations in Zambia.
This follows the recent acquisition by CCBA of Kalundu Beverages Limited, trading as Coca-Cola Beverages Zambia in Lusaka.
Norton Kingwill, the managing director for CCBA’s Southern Africa region said the acquisition of Fairy Bottling allows the firm to achieve greater efficiencies which ultimately means better value for consumers and improved service to customers.
