Working with our suppliers

We realise that an organisation as big as Coca-Cola HBC Poland has huge impact on its environment.

We cooperate with over 3900 suppliers and 1,000 of them are partners supplying us with raw materials, packaging and marketing materials.

Caring about sustainable development, we have developed specific principles that our suppliers of goods and services have to meet. The Supplier Guiding Principles cover such issues as: labour conditions, human rights, a ban on the use of child and forced labour, the impact on natural environment.

Companies supplying raw materials, packaging and semi-products are subject to particularly strict control. Before cooperation is established they undergo a tough selection process and our quality audit. They must also employ a system that permits the marking and tracking of each product batch, for instance a can or a cap.
Additionally, the biggest suppliers, particularly those supplying marketing materials, are obliged to obtain a certificate from The Coca-Cola Company and thus become an authorised supplier for the Coca-Cola system. Such companies are subject to audits examining their compliance with the Coca-Cola system’s principles. Our company cooperates regularly with about 200 suppliers and has 20 authorised suppliers.
