Dubai Refreshments Company (DRC) selects sidel for a hot-fill line
Dubai Refreshments Company, the sole franchisee and distributor of PepsiCo products in Dubai and the Northern Emirates, has chosen Sidel for a complete hot-fill line.
DRC is building a new greenfield site close to Dubai with the capacity to produce over 120 million cases annually to support the growth of local and regional markets. DRC confirmed the order for a new 300 bottles per mould (bpm) hot-fill line from Sidel to package Lipton Tea, with future capability for filling pulpy products (with a Sidel Matrix™ Hot Filler).
Sidel will also supply two SBO10 blowers for a PET line for carbonated soft drinks and water. PepsiCo supports DRC's vision to modernise and expand its infrastructure because they believe that these efforts will help transform the company into one of the world's leading PepsiCo bottlers.
