Australian Beverages

Overview

Our Australian Beverages business has the passion to refresh everyone, every day and everywhere. In addition to the four iconic Coca-Cola products, our portfolio includes Sprite, Fanta, Lift, Kirks, Deep Spring, Mount Franklin, Pump, Powerade, Barista Bros, Zico Coconut Water, Fuze Tea, Goulburn Valley juices and distribution agreements for Monster and Mother. Additionally, Australian Beverages supports the manufacture, sales and distribution of Amatil’s alcoholic beverages range. We work closely with our customers, brand owners and suppliers to manufacture, sell, distribute and market 26 non-alcoholic beverage brands via approximately 115,000 customers nationwide. 

We directly employ approximately 3,500 people across Australia, predominantly in manufacturing, distribution and sales. Our major manufacturing sites are located at Northmead (NSW), Richlands (Qld), Moorabbin (Vic), Thebarton (SA) and Kewdale (WA). 

We also create indirect employment through our Australian supply chain. For every direct Australian job that we create there are up to 4 jobs generated elsewhere in the Australian economy, in producing and distributing our non-alcohol beverages range. 99% of our non-alcohol beverages are made in Australia. In 2016 we spent $1.3 billion on Australian-supplied intermediate goods and services, and contributed approximately $3 billion to the Australian economy. 

Lastly, we're proud to be part of the Australian community and recognise the importance of giving something back. In addition to our efforts on wellbeing, recycling and sustainability, together with Coca-Cola South Pacific we distribute $1.1 million annually to local charities through the Coca-Cola Australia Foundation. 

Together with the Amatil Group in Australia, Australian Beverages employees support local communities through a Workplace Giving program which is matched dollar for dollar by the corporation, volunteering and product donations.
