Hindustan Coca-Cola Shuts Down Jaipur Plant
New Delhi: mHindustan Coca-Cola Beverages (HCCB) has shut down its bottling plant at Kala Dera in Jaipur due to depletion of underground water level and poor conditions of plant machinery. The closure comes after three shutdowns or postponement of expansion activity by HCCB since 2014.
