The production of energy drink Red Bull is set to begin in Nepal, marking a significant milestone for the country’s beverage industry. Saras Beverages, a subsidiary of the Khetan Group, has commissioned a state-of-the-art Red Bull factory in Amarapuri, East Nawalparasi.
The factory, inaugurated by Finance Minister Dr. Prakasharan Mahat, will initially produce Red Bull in 250 ml cans for the domestic market. This local production is expected to bring down the cost of the energy drink, making it more accessible to Nepalese consumers.
“The establishment of a Red Bull factory in Nepal is a testament to the country’s growing potential in the beverage sector,” remarked Finance Minister Dr. Prakasharan Mahat. “This investment not only creates employment opportunities but also positions Nepal as a competitive player in the global beverage market.”
Saras Beverages, the sole manufacturer and distributor of Red Bull in Nepal, is committed to maintaining the brand’s high standards of quality. The Amrapuri factory is equipped with German and Swiss technology, ensuring that Red Bull produced in Nepal meets the same stringent standards as those produced in other countries.
“We are proud to bring Red Bull to Nepal, and we are confident that our local production will meet the expectations of Nepalese consumers,” said a representative of Saras Beverages. “We are committed to providing our consumers with the best possible products, and we are excited to be a part of Nepal’s growing beverage industry.”
Nepal’s entry into the Red Bull production scene marks a significant achievement for the country. With Red Bull factories already established in Thailand, Vietnam, and China, Nepal has become the fourth country in the world to produce this iconic energy drink. This milestone further underscores Nepal’s potential as a hub for beverage production and distribution.
