Procurement approach

It’s one of Coca‑Cola HBC's main principles to purchase raw materials from local suppliers in all 28 countries in which we operate.

One of the key indicators of the sustainable development of the Coca‑Cola in Russia is the purchases of ingredients and materials from Russian suppliers. In 2018, the share of purchases of Coca ‑ Cola ingredients and materials in Russia from local companies was 96% (excluding concentrate).

Sustainable supply chain

We work with our suppliers to build a sustainable supply chain. We invest in joint value creation programmes, ranging from developing climate-friendly cold drink equipment to increasing local beet sugar production. 

Our dedication to quality sourcing is what helps us produce a diverse range of award-winning sparkling drinks, fruit juices, mineral waters, sports and energy drinks and ready-to-drink teas.

Recognising our suppliers

As part of the way we assess and manage supplier relationships and performance, we recognise our best company suppliers in an annual awards ceremony. We assess suppliers on whether they have established and consistently maintained exceptional performance in all areas and achieved top scores in the cross-functional evaluation process.
