Coca‑Cola has been refreshing Swiss consumers since 1936.
Coca‑Cola is more Swiss than you might think.
50 years after its invention, Coca‑Cola arrived in Switzerland in 1936. Coca‑Cola HBC Switzerland is the only bottling company in Switzerland that produces and distributes Coca‑Cola products in the country. We produce our beverages locally: in Dietlikon and Vals.
Over the years, we have developed and built up our operations. We generate a local value of 988 million Swiss Francs for the Swiss economy, that is the equivalent of 0,14 percent of national gross domestic product (GDP).
