Vijayawada: Coca-Cola India has commissioned the third and final phase of the rainwater harvesting project within the premises of its bottling plant at Atmakuru village near Vijaywada last week. The plant can now harvests 100 per cent of rainfall on nearly six acres of constructed area.

The plant maintains an additional 34-acre green belt within its premises. The first phase of this water conservation project was launched in 1999 and the second phase was completed last year. According to Sanjiv Gupta, CEO and president of Coca-Cola India, "We believe in conducting our business in a manner that benefits the local communities. It is indeed a matter of pride and honour for all of us to receive the support from the villages here." The company had earlier donated computers, furniture and books to the village library, besides providing scientific equipment, books and school bags for students in five schools in the neighbouring villages.
