How many bottling partners and employees are part of Coca‑Cola’s business?
Coca‑Cola and its ~200 independent bottling partners employ more than 700,000 people, helping bring economic opportunity to local communities worldwide. Due to the strength of this unique system, we are able to create global reach with local focus. While many may view us as “Coca‑Cola”, our system operates through multiple local channels, and our bottling partners work closely with customers to execute localized strategies developed in partnership with our company. Customers then sell our products to consumers at a rate of 2.2 billion servings per day.
Ties to the Community
Our bottling partners are your neighbors and friends. Coca‑Cola’s success rests on the foundation of a commitment to the people who buy products, the people who sell them and the local communities that our employees and the employees of our partners call home. By hiring and operating locally, our bottling partners are investing in their communities, alongside Coca‑Cola customers and consumers.
While Coca‑Cola is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, the company and its bottling partners hire and employ people across the world in a wide variety of roles. We hire locally in the communities we operate in, as well as utilizing a highly motivated and mobile workforce for some roles, allowing employees to gain valuable international experience and to work closely with people from different countries, cultures and beliefs. We believe in the power of diversifying our workforce at every level, and we have made great strides in the areas of equal opportunity, women’s empowerment, LGBTQ+ rights, and much more.
