Monster's American Fruits & Flavors Plant To Open In Athy This Year.

: 01/17/2020 - 15:24

American Fruits and Flavors is scheduled to open in Athy plant vacated by Coca Cola at some stage this year.

Monster Beverage Corporation's Vice Chair/President has confirmed, in correspondance with Labour Athy Cllr. and Kildare South General Election candidate, Mark Wall, that the plant is scheduled to open this year.

The sale of the site to Monster Beverage Corp, the largest supplier of energy drinks in the US, closed last month.

It has puchased the Coca Cola plant, and adjoining lands.

The Athy plant will be Monster's first EU production site.

Coca Cola ceased production in the town last year, with the lost of 82 jobs.

Another 43 positions transferred to its site in Mayo.
