Coke earmarks a further $4B for investment in China

  • Coca-Cola (KO) intends to spend over $4B in China from 2015-2017, including on constructing new facilities, as it looks to fight back against the competition that has been slowly taking away market share.
  • The investment will add to the $4B that Coke has allocated to invest in China, whose drinks market is worth 421B yuan ($69.12B), from 2012-2014.
  • Coke is also open to agreements with Chinese companies, which could help the beverages giant tap the taste for more local-style herbal teas and healthier drinks.

    With all the food scams that Chinese have to put up with, the best thing that KO can do is make sure it's processing is absolutely up to USA standards and that the people know it
