BUENOS AIRES Jan 21 (Reuters) - Coca-Cola Co will invest $1 billion over four years in its bottling and distribution operations in Argentina, the office of Argentine President Mauricio Macri said in a statement on Thursday.

Coca-Cola officials in Argentina were not immediately available to comment. Some of the investment will also be directed at environmental initiatives, the statement said.
