Coca-Cola returned to Afghanistan after a 15-year absence with an investment of USD 25 million on a bottling plant and a water-purification facility. The company also had to build a separate facility to produce the carbon dioxide gas needed to make the drink carbonated and generate its own power for the 60 000 square meter plant. Habib Gulzar International, the franchisee of Coca-Cola in Afghanistan, expects to create 600 jobs, with the possibility of generating 8000 more in allied industries. Afghan-made Coca-Cola, Fanta and Sprite began distribution in early 2006, servicing even regional markets in Central Asia and cost marginally less than Coca-Cola imported from Pakistan and Iran.
