Carlsberg subsidiary Olympic Brewery has invested €3.2 million ($3.7m) in its plant in Thessaloniki, Greece for a new production line of 20-litre PET beer kegs.

The new unit, which produces the Mythos, Fix, Fix Dark and Kaiser brands, is expected to boost Olympic Brewery’s domestic presence in the areas of catering and tourism. It is also expected to raise export prospects over the coming years, which currently accounts for five per cent of the company’s total turnover.

Olympic Brewery is planning investments of €4.6m ($5.4m) on the facility this year, with the company’s total investments in Greece over the 2015-2018 period estimated at €22m ($26m).
