Coca Cola, the beverage giant, which already has three plants in Palestine’s West Bank, is now set to open a fourth one, a $20 million investment in Gaza, the heart of clashes with Israel.
Investments in Hamas-controlled Gaza look riskier than those in the West Bank, but Imad Hindi, the general manager of National Beverage Company (NBC), which bottles and distributes Coca Cola products, says the company has played a role with investments that invites others.
“Coca Cola is the first and largest global company that has invested in Palestine and these investments are opening the gates for others. The same thing will occur in Gaza,” he said, during a press trip to a plant in Ramallah earlier this week.
Beside Ramallah, Coca Cola has plants in Tulkarim and Jericho in the West Bank. The global firm entered the country in 1998, in partnership with NBC.
