For more than 127 years Coca-Cola has been refreshing the world. With our brands and activities, we stand for happiness and optimism. We now produce our products locally in more than 200 countries and sell them there. 1.9 billion of our locally produced beverages are consumed every day. In Germany we have offered our consumers and customers a constantly growing diversity of different non-alcoholic soft drinks for 85 years.
This ongoing success of our brands leads at the same time to a responsibility and obligation for us to structure our growth in line with community needs and with respect for the environment. Because through our actions we want to make a positive contribution to a more sustainable world.
