The Coca-Cola Company, has been investing in Africa for 90 years, since 1928, and is present in every African country, with over 70 000 employees across 145 bottling and canning facilities. CCBA began its operations as a legal entity from July 2016 having been created as a direct result of a merger between non-alcoholic ready to drink bottling operations of The Coca-Cola Company, SABMiller and the Gutsche Family Investments.

We boast a diverse pan-African footprint with more than 30 bottling plants servicing over 550 000 outlets that serve a combined population of over 249 million people across the continent. We currently serve 10 countries in sub-Saharan Africa: South Africa, Kenya, Ethiopia, Mozambique, Tanzania, Uganda, Namibia, Ghana, Mayotte and the Comoros. Our ambition is to extend CCBA’s territory to 40 countries by 2020. CCBA directly employs more than 15 000 people and enjoys the number one market position in most of our 10 territories.
CCBA is pursuing an ambitious growth strategy that is aligned with The Coca-Cola Company’s 2020 Vision and will be supported through investment in manufacturing, sales, distribution and marketing.
