Coca-Cola Amatil (NZ) Ltd (CCANZ) recently won the Best Business Award in the Industrial and Manufacturing category at the Better Business Awards evening held in Putaruru on Saturday, 21 September.

The event, run each year by Pride in Putaruru and the South Waikato District Council, celebrates business in Putaruru. CCANZ was nominated in the category alongside five other companies (two bottlers and three lumber companies). The judges were particularly impressed by CCANZ’s recycling policy; lack of intrusion on the environment; and respect for the area surrounding the factory.

Putaruru Manufacturing Manager, Graeme Urbahn, said: “We’re thrilled to accept this award. The majority of our staff hail from this area so it’s great to be recognised by our local community.”
