Visiting the Coca-Cola Bottling Plant, Indianapolis
Liz and I headed to Indy a little later than we expected. This past week has been a little hectic, so we left one day later than we had planned, catching our breath a little before heading home.
On arriving in Indy, we met up with my sister and my cousin Jenny. We, along with her husband Dan, all toured the Indianapolis Coca-Cola bottling plant (she works for Coke). This is us at the entrance, about to get our visitor badges and tour.

The first of many large stacks of Coca-Cola products.
Another large stack of Coke. Sadly, we saw some pretty spectacular machines and automated processes… but I wasn’t allowed to photograph any of it. For a while, it was just like those video interstitials from Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood, where you got to see all the behind-the-scenes stuff at factories.
This tour was exactly like that.
Sadly, you’ll just have to take my word for it that there were some pretty spectacular, neat machines. For a good while there, I was bummed that I couldn’t record/share all the neat machinery at work.
A ton of blank/empty green 2-liter bottles.
Empty crates and palettes.
A pretty huge recycling area.
