“Due to unfavorable market conditions, the production of water in Croatia for Coca-Cola HBC has become untenable. Having analyzed the situation, the company has estimated that there is no economic justification for the retention of a bottling plant in Gotalovec. Its utilization is, in fact, currently only 20 percent. Therefore the bottling plant in Gotalovec will stop working on August 31 next year, “reported Coca-Cola HBC Croatia.
Around 80 jobs are expected to go along with the closure. Coca-Cola says that they will continue to remain present in the water market in Croatia.
