The Coca-Cola Company (TCCC) celebrates 70 years of continuous operation in Zimbabwe, its 132nd anniversary globally and 90 years in Africa, today. The company began operations in Zimbabwe as a Company Bottling Operation in 1948, with the first factory premises located at Telford Road in Graniteside, Harare, and has since expanded to the present site known as “Coke Corner”. The company has been a cornerstone of special moments which involved bringing people together, and being a major of their celebrations, while providing refreshments for seven decades now.
In celebrating the company, Ahmed Rady, General Manager of Coca-Cola East and Central Africa Franchise said, “We take great pride in being a part of Zimbabwe’s fibre for over 70 years, and being a part of celebrations by families and individuals who enjoy an ice-cold refreshment on a sunny day. Coca-Cola has also been a part of national celebrations, including the events to mark the attainment of the country’s independence in 1980 among other milestone events. But we offer more than just refreshments, we prioritize our value chain, and contribute to the nation’s social-economic aspirations and the environment.”
