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.
