Coca-Cola to be Produced in Kosovo

Okay, I haven't posted anything in ages.  Life is good, my neck-of-the-woods is largely safe and secure AND Coca-Cola is going to bottled in my town.  Check this out:

02 June 2008 Pristina _ World-famous beverage Coca-Cola will be again produced in Kosovo, a local company who is expected to buy the license claims.

Fluidi, a local Kosovo company says it will obtain the license to produce Coca-Cola locally.
“We are in the final stages of reaching a deal on technical issues with the Coca-Cola management,” Faton Sylejmani, the marketing manager at Fluidi told Balkan Insight.
Sylejmani explained that the production of the drink in Kosovo is expected to begin within weeks and the factory, which is located in the eastern town of Gjilan/Gnjilane, will initially have the capacity to produce around 10,000 litres per hour.
Before the conflict in the late 1990s in Kosovo, Coca-Cola was produced in the town of Lypjan/Ljiplane at a lower capacity by a joint share company in the former Yugoslavia.
Until now, the beverage was imported from other neighbouring countries, mainly Macedonia.
