Suntory Pepsico begins construction of $300 million plant in Vietnam

Suntory PepsiCo Vietnam commenced construction of its sixth plant on April 8. The new plant is located in Huu Thanh Industrial Zone, Duc Hoa district, Long An province.

The project is expected to cost more than $300 million, with the facility poised to become the largest and most cutting-edge Suntory PepsiCo plant in the Asia-Pacific region. Upon completion, the plant will have an annual capacity of 800 million litres, meeting the demand of consumers and solidifying Suntory PepsiCo’s leading position in Vietnam’s beverage market.

Addressing the ceremony, Do Thanh Trung, Deputy Minister of Planning and Investment said, “This project is among the largest foreign investments in Long An and is expected to contribute to the socioeconomic development of the Mekong Delta province,” said Trung.

Spanning approximately 20 hectares of land, the Long An plant will be powered by renewable energy, such as biomass and solar power, significantly reducing emissions at the plant.

Products made there will use packaging made from 100 per cent polyetylen terephthalate, along with other initiatives to save resources in its production. This signifies Suntory PepsiCo’s move towards realising the sustainability commitments of the government of Vietnam and its pledge to reach net-zero emissions by 2050.

“The establishment of this sixth plant, touted as the largest and most advanced facility within the region, is poised to strengthen Suntory PepsiCo Vietnam’s leadership in the market. It will augment production capacity to meet consumer demand, spur the launch of more product innovations, and foster the expansion of the local supply chain, further reinforcing the company’s foothold in the country,” said Takayuki Sanno, CEO of Suntory Beverage and Food Asia Pacific, Vietnam

Jahanzeb Khan, CEO and general director of Suntory PepsiCo Vietnam, said, “This plant will be the largest investment in Vietnam in our company’s history, setting new benchmarks for productivity and sustainability and paving the way for its long-term growth.”

With its three decades of operation in Vietnam, from its first manufacturing facility in the Hoc Mon district of Ho Chi Minh City, Suntory PepsiCo remains committed to further investment in Vietnam by expanding it footprint nationwide with five plants in Can Tho, Dong Nai, Ho Chi Minh City, Quang Nam, and Bac Ninh, complemented by six offices dispersed across the country.
