Our history

In 1932, more than 80 years ago, Coca-Cola was produced for the first time in Indonesia.  Since then, The Coca-Cola System has made important contributions to the development of the country as an employer, investor, and caring member of the community.  We are proud of our heritage in Indonesia, and are very optimistic about the future of the country, our industry and our business, driving us to confirm, one more time, our unyielding commitment to Indonesia for the long term.   

Today, Coca-Cola Amatil Indonesia employs over 12,000 people, operating out of 8 manufacturing facilities and over 200 authorised sales and distribution centers all over the country, one of the broadest footprints of any food and beverage company.  Coca-Cola Amatil Indonesia is the major bottling partner and largest Australian investment business in Indonesia, operating since 1992, covering the majority of the country, except for North Sulawesi. 

Our system partner, Coca-Cola Indonesia, a local service office of the Coca-Cola Company, is responsible for the marketing of our brands, and Commercial Product Supply, maker of syrups and beverage bases for products of The Coca-Cola Company to serve Indonesia and other countries around the region.  

We manufacture, sell and distribute more than 10 brands in Indonesia including Sparkling Soft Drinks, Juices, Teas, Isotonic Drinks, Water, Energy Drinks, and more, in more than 100 packaging formats and sizes, and we serve directly more than 600,000 large and small retail outlets.

Our sustainability philosophy is anchored on our heritage, and the firm belief that we rely on strong communities to have a strong business.  Our responsibility to the communities in which we operate includes the unsurpassed quality of our products, our responsible marketing philosophy, our manufacturing environmental practices, and the contributions we make to education, healthy-active living, women economic empowerment, water replenishment, and clean water and sanitation access.
