Local impact in numbers

Coca-Cola is available in Austria since 1929 and is now more than ever ready to refresh local consumers. As part of Coca-Cola HBC, we clearly commit to our strong international background, but also to our local roots. Therefore, local production and local added value instead of import has always been our focus.


By means of its investments, the company thus makes an important contribution along the entire value chain. We generate local added value of €774 million for the Austrian economy.  This corresponds to 0,22% of the national Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

Our secret ingredient are our people 

We couldn’t have become what we are today, if it wasn’t for our people. Today, we employ around 1,000 people in production, sales and distribution. As an employment effect in other business segments such as the supply industry, the transport and retail sectors, CocaCola creates, as a major business partner for many companies, 11 more jobs for each of our own employees.
