Coca‑Cola HBC at a glance

We’re one of the world’s largest bottlers of drinks from The Coca‑Cola Company and our business has a strong foundation for long-term growth.

We’re a partner of The Coca‑Cola Company

Coca‑Cola HBC (Coca‑Cola Hellenic Bottling Company) is a bottling partner of The Coca‑Cola Company. This means that The Coca‑Cola Company manufactures and sells concentrates, bases and syrups to its bottling partners, owns the brands and is responsible for consumer brand marketing initiatives. We use the concentrates and syrups to manufacture, package, merchandise and distribute the final branded products to our trade partners and consumers. 

Leading brands and a diverse portfolio

Coca‑Cola HBC Serbia and Montenegro produces, sells and distributes a wide range of soft drinks, including leading brands such as Coca‑Cola, Coca‑Cola Zero, Fanta and Sprite; local brands, such as Rosa, Next and Joy; and brands licensed by other companies, such as Nestea, Ultra Energy and Schweppes.

A broad geographic footprint

Coca‑Cola HBC operates from Ireland in the west to the Pacific coast of Russia in the east, from the Arctic Circle in the north to the tropics of Nigeria in the south. This provides attractive opportunities for growth and means that we are not dependent on any particular market.

A sustainable business

We’ve integrated sustainability and corporate responsibility into every part of our business, aiming to build long-term value for our stakeholders. In 2016, the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices recognised us as the beverage industry leaders in Europe and the world for the third consecutive year.

Lean manufacturing footprint

Our vast territory opens up opportunities for us but also brings challenges. We constantly look for ways to make our operational infrastructure as efficient as possible. Coca‑Cola HBC Serbia and Montenegro consists of a bottling plant in Zemun, together with a regional juice excellence centre which opened in late 2015 and the Vlasinka plant.
