21 June 2022 – The management of Voltic (GH) Limited, a subsidiary of Coca Cola Beverages Africa (CCBA), enjoyed a warm reception from the Ga Mantse King Nii Tackie Teiko Tsuru II, during a recent visit to express the company’s gratitude for the King’s support and CCBA’s commitment to the welfare of the people of the Ga area.
King Nii Tackie Teiko Tsuru II in his comments to the team sought support for the ‘Kinka Blonya’ initiative which offers scholarships to brilliant but needy girls in the Ga community.
Voltic Managing Director Flora Jika said the programme resonates with the company’s commitment to promoting the education of girls across the country.
“As a business, we partner for growth with our customers and local suppliers and we are passionate about creating inclusive growth opportunities for women and youth in our communities,” said Jika.
“Because women and youth are integral to our continent’s shared success, we seek to empower them by enabling their economic inclusion throughout our markets in Africa. CCBA’s contribution to The Coca-Cola Company’s 10-year global women empowerment initiative, the 5by20 programme, was significant,” Jika said.
CCBA has adopted the three pillars of education, employability and entrepreneurship as a framework for its economic inclusion strategy.
The company defines economic inclusion as the opening of gainful economic opportunities by providing access to markets and other economic activities leveraging the business and the entire industry.
“Our aim is to boost income, provide decent earning potential and improve skills and business knowledge for women, resulting in them accessing other opportunities,” said Jika.
“We have a particular focus on current or potential entrepreneurs with the possibility to link to the Coca-Cola value chain today or in the future.”
The management team presented packs of Voltic Natural Mineral Water, Hollandia Evaporated Milk, and Hollandia Yoghurt to the King ahead of the Homowo festival.
