Coca-Cola Beverages Philippines Inc. (CCBPI)—the bottling arm of Coca-Cola in the country—opens its newest distribution center in Tagbilaran, Bohol as part of its vigorous efforts of investing in long term growth in the Philippines.
Reinforcing its commitment to contribute to the country’s stable economic recovery, Coca-Cola’s new distribution hub is vital in catering to more customers and partners in the province of Bohol—where Coca-Cola also has a manufacturing plant. The new site enables operational and logistical efficiencies thereby allowing Coca-Cola to deliver more refreshing beverages to customers across the province.
Despite the challenges over the past two years due to the pandemic, business growth in the area has shown steady progress as Coca-Cola strengthened its trade outlet network and customer reach. This prompted the company to unveil a new distribution hub to cater to the heightened demand for Coca-Cola products in the area.
“The opening of a new distribution center marks another chapter for Coca-Cola Beverages Philippines Inc. here in the country. As a company, we will always look for opportunities to be better ourselves—for our people, our partners, and the communities we serve. We are grateful to our associates and partners in Bohol who play significant roles in supporting the success that we see today, and fueling the growth for tomorrow.” said Gareth McGeown, CCBPI CEO and President.
With the launch of its new distribution center, CCBPI continues to strengthen its commitment to produce top quality beverage products—remaining steadfast to its promise of ensuring that every Coca-Cola bottle that reaches the market goes through the strictest manufacturing and safety measures, and highest sustainability standards.
“Our first site in Bohol has been here for 70 years—we will continue to serve local communities here and across the Philippines for as long as we can. We are excited about many opportunities and we are glad to be strengthening our partnership with our customers, government partners, and communities through our new distribution center,” says Ayesha Castillano, CCBPI Tagbilaran Plant Manager.
McGeown also added that apart from the endless possibilities and strengthened relationship brought by the new distribution center, the success of the company lies in serving the people of Bohol and operating the business the right way.
“We strive to make that positive impact and be a force for good wherever we have the privilege and honor to operate. We look forward to the amazing things we can accomplish in the years to come through our Tagbilaran Plant and distribution center. CCBPI is forever grateful for your continued trust and support that has always been the anchor of our success,” concludes McGeown.
