Today marks the 25th anniversary of The Coca-Cola Bottling Company of Bahrain (TCCBC) – a subsidiary of one of the world’s largest producers of soft drinks. Tracing back its journey of success, the bottling company has seen significant growth since started operations in the Kingdom and officially became The Coca-Cola Bottling Company in May 1991.
“Although The Coca-Cola Bottling Company of Bahrain is relatively young, we have been contributing in various ways to the local ecosystem. Most importantly, we have gained the trust and confidence of the people of Bahrain and marked a strong presence in almost every local sector,” said Mohamed Akeel, Managing Director of The Coca-Cola Bottling Company of Bahrain.
Akeel continued: “The Coca-Cola Company is committed to serving the communities in which we operate in through responsible, sustainable business. We do so in Bahrain through sponsorships, participation in relevant local initiatives and of course, supplying a range of beverages that suit a variety of lifestyles and choices.”
The company’s achievements are powered by its 230 associates, including nearly 80 Bahrainis. This commitment to making a positive difference in Bahrain is seen through TCCBCB’s sponsorships and participation in numerous local programs such as the “Danat” Project, empowering the physically disabled community in cooperation with the Ministry of Labour and Social Development.
Other highlights of its operations over the last 25 years include the Coca-Cola ‘Thirst Quenchers’ campaign, which supplied beverages to laborers working long hours during the hottest weeks of the Bahraini summer. And in 2015, the company launched an art up-cycling initiative called ‘Create Beautiful Things’ that inspired local artists to create art using recycled objects and which raised BD 2,800 for local charities.
