Coca Cola’s plant shut

Coca Cola, one of the largest beverage makers in the country has to shut its plant at Varanasi after the Uttar Pradesh Pollution Control Board withdrew permission to operate over alleged violation of environmental norms.

According to the company statement, "In an unprecedented move, Uttar Pradesh Pollution Control Board (UPPCB) withdrew the consent to operate to the Hindustan Coca-Cola Beverages plant at Mehandiganj, Varanasi.”

The plant in Varanasi produces soft drinks only in glass bottles and belongs to Hindustan Coca Cola Beverages Pvt Ltd, the bottling operations unit of Coca-Cola. The company has moved the National Green Tribunal, challenging the order. The company said the tribunal has already had three hearings related to the matter and will come up again before the tribunal on June 20th’14.
