WELLINGTON, New Zealand (RNZI, June 11) - International soft
drink giant PepsiCo Inc. is looking at setting up a multi-million dollar
bottling plant in Fiji in a joint venture with a local business partner.

The Fiji Times reports that an announcement of the deal is
expected next month.

The local partner is expected to be the Tappoo Group, which has
been the local distributing agent for Pepsi for many years and has a franchise
agreement for other South Pacific countries.

The chairman of Tappoos, Kanti Tappoo, is quoted as saying a
feasibility study for the new Suva plant has been completed and they are now
going over the details.

Coca Cola has had a bottling plant in Fiji for many years.
