Paradise Beverages rewarded for Health and Safety excellence

Coca-Cola Amatil’s Fiji-based Paradise Beverages business was recently awarded Best Practice in OHS Management for the Corporate Category by Fiji’s Ministry of Employment, Productivity & Industrial Relations.

Coca-Cola Amatil’s Fiji-based Paradise Beverages business was recently awarded Best Practice in OHS Management for the Corporate Category by Fiji’s Ministry of Employment, Productivity & Industrial Relations.

The award coincided with World Day for Safety and Health at Work and came just days before the Fijian team celebrated one year LTI (lost time injury) free at the Suva Brewery, adding to a three-plus years LTI free record at its other Fijian production site, the Lautoka Distillery.

Said Shane Richardson, CCA’s Managing Director of Alcohol and Coffee, “This is a milestone achievement for our General Manager Tony Scanlan and the rest of the Paradise Beverages team and is testament to their hard work in ensuring a safe work environment and looking after the wellbeing of themselves, each other and their visitors.

“Safety is of paramount importance to everyone and everything we do at CCA. We are very proud of the recognition they’ve achieved and look forward to their excellent work in ensuring Paradise Beverages will continue to be known as the leader in safety, health and wellbeing.”

The Suva Brewery employs 119 people and produces Fiji Bitter, Fiji Gold (Fiji’s number one selling beer), Vonu Pure Lager and Fiji Premium, as well as a range of Ready To Drink (RTD) products including Bounty Rum and Cola, and the Tribe range.

The Lautoka Distillery produces the award-winning Bounty Rum range. Other Paradise Beverages facilities include its Samoan Brewery (home of Vailima Beer, Samoa’s biggest selling beer) and the Lautoka Distribution Warehouse.

CCA purchased the Fijian business from SABMiller in 2012, renaming it Paradise Beverages (Fiji) Ltd as part of its alcohol beverages strategy for the Pacific region and Australia, and announcing a three-year program to invest FJD 44 million to modernise the facilities, improve the capability of local teams and provide better working conditions for staff.
