Our substantial impact on the Maltese economy arises from the thoughtful ways in which we interact with our suppliers, customers, consumers, and stakeholders. To this extent our Company contributes €50 million contribution in taxes which is equivalent to 0.57 % of Malta’s GDP. We employ over 350 people in Malta and Gozo at our manufacturing site, offices, and distribution centres. Moreover, our system supports 1,113 jobs in its value chain which means that in Malta our Company supports 3 other jobs elsewhere in the local economy. Our Company is also certified in FSSC 22000, ISO 22000 and ISO/TS 22002, QMS 150, EMS ISO 1400, OHSAS 180001, FSM ISO 22000. These standards are supported by operating procedures and a set of behaviors which are practiced throughout the whole operation. Together, we’re united by a belief that we are in the business of consumers’ happiness and that we can be a force for good in our society. In fact, in 2018 our Company was a key player in bringing the beverage industry together and sign the UNESDA pledge to reduce the sugar content in our beverage portfolio by 10% by 2020. The reduction was achieved by reformulating existing products with low-calorie sweeteners, new products with no or reduced sugar, smaller pack sizes that allow portion control and moderation, promoting reduced and no-sugar products to guide consumer choice.
Our Company is committed to minimizing the environmental impact of our products and operations, with a particular focus on recycling, water stewardship, energy efficiency and climate protection through meaningful actions such as the Alter Aqua program, the Zero Waste Future program and Net Zero HoReCa program. These programmes are funded by The Coca-Cola Foundation and since their implementation in 2011,2019 and 2022 respectively, have left tangible lasting positive impacts in our society.
