We have set out to deliver more for all of our stakeholders through our new strategy, targets and vision. Achieving our goals is made possible by our bold approach to products and portfolio strategy, route to market, passionate people, innovative thinking and commitment to responsible, sustainable practices throughout our Company.

“2019 was another year of strong growth with the business recording its highest ever volume and comparable EBIT. I am particularly pleased with how we finished the year, following the unseasonable weather we faced in Q2 and Q3. We drove growth across all three market segments as well as in our three largest markets of Russia, Italy and Nigeria. Our core sparkling category continues to grow, supported by momentum in low- and no-sugar variants and we continue to gain or maintain share in the majority of our markets. We were recognised by the Dow Jones Sustainability Index as Europe’s most sustainable beverage company for the sixth time in seven years. We enter 2020 with considerable momentum and exciting plans that include the roll-out of Costa Coffee in at least 10 of our markets. We are confident that we are well on track to deliver our 2020 commitments and to make solid progress on our 2025 growth agenda.” Zoran Bogdanovic, Chief Executive Officer of Coca‑Cola HBC AG
