Now, the latter is opening its own unit in Pathankot, Punjab, worth 550 Crore INR. The two brands released a joint statement saying that his unit will be manufacturing almost of all PepsiCo’s leading products. They will be responsible for manufacturing Tropicana’s entire range of juices, Aquafina water, dairy-based products, Lipton Ice Tea, Gatorade, and carbonated soft drinks.

Spread over 41 acres of prime land, this manufacturing unit is a first of a kind – as it is the only one that is an integrated facility that can manufacture a wide range of PepsiCo products.
