Coca-Cola bottle

Coca-Cola Product of the Year 2007

According to retailers, Coca-Cola was among the top ten most profitable and best-rotating FMCG products throughout 2007.

A survey among retailers was conducted in January 2008 by the renowned research institute GfK Polonia on commission from Trade Press, the publisher of Detal Dzisiaj. A total of 500 shop owners and managers were interviewed.

The Merchandise of the Year title goes to the product that was best-selling in stores and generated the highest profit in a given calendar year. In the process, retailers compile a list of must-have products for each store. The idea behind the contest is to award the products/brands that are highly valued by retailers.

Even though the Division President’s Award is the Coca-Cola system’s internal award, its significance is actually very high. 14 production plants from 8 countries, including Austria, the Czech Republic, Estonia and Switzerland, were classified in the 2007 contest. The assessment criteria included quality parameters for beverages, packaging and manufacturing process as well as environment parameters regarding the use of energy and water and waste volume per litre of product. It was the first time ever that all three awards went to the plants from one country.
