Our supply chains are under increasing pressure from population growth, increased demand for food products and climate change. That’s why we’re sourcing all our agricultural ingredients and raw materials sustainably and responsibly.

To make our drinks, we depend on a sustainable supply of high quality agricultural ingredients and raw materials. We need to ensure they are sourced sustainably.

We rely on a global supply chain to make, sell and distribute our products. We source ingredients for our drinks such as water, sugar beet, sugar cane, coffee, tea and fruit juices, and we also purchase raw materials for our packaging such as glass, aluminium, PET and paper. We’ve made a joint commitment with The Coca-Cola Company (TCCC) to ensure that we sustainably source 100% of our priority agricultural ingredients and raw materials. 

Together with TCCC, we work collaboratively with our suppliers to respect and protect the human rights of everyone working across our entire supply chain. We aim to ensure our suppliers respect our Code of Conduct and make a positive impact on society, in line with the United Nations’ Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, the  International Labour Organization’s Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work and the United Nations’ Global Compact

Our work on supply chain helps to support UN Sustainable Development Goal 2, UN Sustainable Development Goal 8, and UN Sustainable Development Goal 10.

Krones and CCEP have achieved great success with social and environmental initiatives over the years. We're excited to support CCEP's new climate strategy and look forward to working towards the net zero ambition together.
