Our community contribution in Australia, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, New Zealand, Fiji and Samoa continue to deliver outcomes in partnership with local communities to ensure they are relevant to community development needs and circumstances. Our contribution includes:
Indigenous Barista Training, Australia
Grinders Coffee and the Voyages Hotel Ayers Rock launched a new training program to help young Indigenous people in the region pursue a retail career, through a dedicated barista education and training program.
Cyclone Winston Employee Hardship Fund, Fiji
As one of the region’s largest employers, Paradise Beverages donated FJ$150,000 to the Government disaster relief fund and established an additional dedicated hardship fund to assist those employees worst affected. In total, 95 employees received food vouchers and assistance to repair damage to their houses or replace lost possessions.
Coca Cola Australia Foundation Employee Connected grants, Australia
Launched in 2016, Employee Connected grants provide employees from Coca-Cola Amatil and Coca-Cola South Pacific the opportunity to endorse a charity organisation they care about. One recipient charity was Helping Hoops, a free weekly basketball program for disadvantaged, disabled and migrant children in South Melbourne.
