SOFIA (Bulgaria), October 17 (SeeNews) - Bulgaria's government said that it has granted approval to Coca-Cola Hellenic Bottling Company Bulgaria to  drill a new well at the Bankya mineral water deposit, in the Sofia region.

Coca-Cola Hellenic Bottling Company Bulgaria is currently bottling water from the Bankya deposit under a concession contract signed in January 2001, the government said in a statement following its weekly meeting on Wednesday.

Earlier this year, the company said that it has invested 40 million levs ($22.7 million/ 20.4 million euro) to double the production capacity of its bottling plant in Kostinbrod, to 9,000 half-litre bottles per hour.

Coca-Cola HBC Bulgaria is part of Swiss-based holding company Coca-Cola HBC which is a leading bottler of the Coca-Cola company. In Southeast Europe, the group operates in Croatia, Slovenia, Romania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Moldova, North Macedonia, Serbia, Kosovo, and Montenegro.
