11:19 EDTKOCoca-Cola invests an additional $5B for long-term sustainable growth in Africa
The Coca-Cola Company and its African bottling partners announced a new investment of $5B during the U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit. The investment, to be made over the next six years, increases its total announced investment in Africa to $17B from 2010 to 2020. The company and its bottling partners anticipate that this investment will fund new manufacturing lines, cooling and distribution equipment and production; create additional jobs and opportunities across Coca-Cola’s African supply chain; and support key sustainability initiatives and programs focused on safe water access, sustainable sourcing, women’s economic empowerment, community well-being and operational efficiency improvements. The Company has also signed a Letter of Intent to launch Source Africa, an initiative to secure more consistent and sustainable local ingredient sourcing for its products in partnership with the New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition and Grow Africa. The initiative will initially focus on sustainable mango and tea production in Kenya; citrus, mango and pineapple production in Nigeria; and mango in Malawi. Longer-term, the program could expand to focus on sustainable ingredient production in Ethiopia, Senegal, Tanzania and Mozambique. Source Africa builds on the experience of Coca-Cola’s work in sustainable agriculture, including Project Nurture, an $11.5M partnership supporting 50,000 small-scale fruit farmers in East Africa to sustainably grow their crops and income.
