Our business is growing, which means we have more opportunities to buy locally, generate jobs, invest in capacity and skills, empower small businesses and help farmers improve their quality. We are already exceeding the Coca-Cola system’s global 2022 target to source locally 80% of the raw materials that are usually imported.
We are working with our supply chain to continuously improve sustainable and ethical sourcing practices, including a continued commitment to human rights. Furthermore, collaboration between government and the private sector is critical to sustain economic growth in emerging markets in the face of challenges. This means that wherever possible, companies in the private sector must localise production inputs to encourage industrialisation and create jobs, while governments evolve policies to support these endeavours.
