About The Coca-Cola Company

Everyone knows Coca-Cola. It’s the best-known product in the world. We’ve been making our most famous drink since 1886 and it still tastes the same.

But as a business, The Coca-Cola Company, we are constantly evolving – developing new products, acquiring great brands and pioneering new ways of doing things. Today, in addition to Coca-Cola, we sell three more of the world's top five non-alcoholic sparkling drinks – Diet Coke, Sprite and Fanta - plus more than 3,300 products in over 200 countries. Our products include water, juices, energy drinks, and even tea and coffee. Altogether, that adds up to more than 1.6 billion drinks around the globe every day.

We are present in 37 countries in Europe and, following a recent transformation programme, are now organised as two business units: Central & Eastern Europe (CEE), Western Europe (WEBU). These two strong business units allow us to operate at scale but ensure flawless delivery through local market operations which work closely with our bottling partners who manufacture, package and distribute our soft drinks.
