Crown Beverages Limited, the longstanding Pepsi Cola franchise holder in Uganda, has achieved a significant milestone by securing the Kenyan franchise starting from December 1st.

The announcement was made by Dr. Amos Nzeyi, the Board Chair of Crown Beverages Limited, during the company's Thanksgiving dinner.

Dr Nzeyi highlighted the strategic importance of this acquisition, stating,

"This milestone will enable Uganda to domesticate its bottling services, ultimately boosting sales and doubling tax remittances to the country's coffers."

However, the celebratory atmosphere was tinged with concern as Dr Nzeyi addressed operational challenges faced by the company, particularly power blackouts.

He expressed the impact on production processes and the resulting escalation in operational costs, revealing that the company is now compelled to resort to generators.

In response to this hurdle, Thomas Tayebwa, Deputy Speaker of Parliament, swiftly pledged action, stating,

"I will not only follow up on this matter but also work towards implementing policies that safeguard the interests of domestic investors."

Despite the operational challenges, the Thanksgiving event provided an opportunity for recognition and commendation.

Board members and members of the business community lauded Dr Nzeyi for his philanthropic programs, particularly in sectors like health, which have significantly transformed the well-being of Ugandan citizens.

The dual nature of the news, marking a triumph in expanding regional presence and acknowledging domestic challenges, underscores Crown Beverages Limited's journey and resilience in the dynamic beverage industry.

As the company navigates new territories, attention is drawn to the imperative need to address operational impediments to ensure sustained growth and contribution to Uganda's economic landscape.
