This Report reflects our results and achievements for 2019. The strategies, priorities, shareholder value proposition and outlook statements were relevant and appropriate at the time of being issued within the 2019 Financial and Statutory Reports, but COVID-19 will cause all of them to change.
We have been implementing contingency plans to mitigate the impacts of COVID-19 on our workforce and operations. We will continue to evolve our response and assess the impact of the global pandemic as its effect on our business becomes clearer.

We achieved solid progress in a number of areas, with the Australian Beverages and Indonesia businesses showing strong improvement in the last year of the two-year transition period.
I am pleased to present the Coca-Cola Amatil Limited Annual Report for 2019.
The end of 2019 marked the completion of a two-year transition period for Amatil. We strengthened our customer and consumer focus and simplified our operating model to better align the beverage categories to our geographies. We also renewed our focus on core categories and channels and reinvested in people and facilities. The benefits of these changes are evident, both in this year’s strong financial results and in industry-changing commitments on sugar reduction and recycling.
At Coca-Cola Amatil, our operations and performance are built on the three pillars of our Group Strategy – Perform, Grow and Strong Organisation, and these are underpinned by our approach to creating value for both our Shareholders and our society.
2019 was a pleasing year for Coca-Cola Amatil, with top-line revenue growth reflecting the impact of our business initiatives across each market.
We’ve been constantly evolving, adapting to changing markets, consumer tastes and technology, for more than a century.
At Coca-Cola Amatil, our ambition is to be a Regional Beverages Powerhouse, creating millions of moments of happiness and possibilities every day. This reflects our passion for our business and the optimism we apply to everything we do.
