Our Suppliers

Our suppliers

The Coca‑Cola System orders from 1,400 Ukrainian suppliers, including those in such important industries as sugar production, packaging, transportation and logistics. The share of local procurement is 72% in total purchases made by Coca‑Cola companies.

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. In our own business, we are creating a 100 percent quality culture with zero tolerance for failure to meet standards. This approach extends to our suppliers, too.

Becoming a Coca‑Cola HBC supplier

Coca‑Cola HBC requires tier 1 suppliers to gain certification to the following standards:

  • ISO 9001 (quality)
  • ISO 14001 (environment)
  • OHSAS 18001 (health and safety).

Ingredient and packaging suppliers must also achieve certification to FSSC 22000 certification for food safety and the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI).

A prerequisite to become listed as a Coca‑Cola HBC supplier is to commit to the Coca‑Cola HBC Supplier Guiding Principles. These Principles make clear the values and behaviour we expect, and audit, in our value chain.
