Women to shake up hospitality scene with new skills

Maputo – Women bartenders and students seeking a career in the hospitality industry will have the opportunity to sharpen their skills following the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MOU) between Coca-Cola Beverages Africa (CCBA) in Mozambique and the Ministry of Culture and Tourism.

The initiative will focus on providing advanced training for women working in hospitality to craft creative and well-balanced “mocktails” (non-alcoholic cocktails).

“The project will provide opportunites for bartenders in the growing market for innovative non-alcoholic beverages, said Public Affairs, Communications and Sustainability Director, Neyde Pires.

“At CCBA, our aim is to create greater shared opportunity for the business and the communities we serve across the value chain.

“We understand that our business thrives when the communities we serve thrive  This is why we have made economic inclusion of women one of the pillars of our sustainability strategy at CCBA,” said Pires.

“Across our value chain, we are working to improve skills and business knowledge for women, which in turn can help give them access to more opportunities.”

“We will continue to focus on creating a better shared future, to grow and sustain small businesses and enhance livelihoods, resulting in increased economic value and business capability for women, communities and our business,” said Pires.
