CCBA has developed superior scale and reach in Sub-Saharan Africa, with long established roots dating back 80 years, which has allowed it to gain a deep understanding of local business environments and develop a far-reaching distribution network and strong commercial capabilities tailored to its individual local markets. It is the largest pure-play African consumer platform, well-positioned to capture growth, with an extensive distribution and supply chain infrastructure.

CCBA operates in 14 countries including its six key markets of South Africa, Kenya, Ethiopia, Uganda, Mozambique and Namibia, as well as Tanzania, Botswana, Ghana, Zambia, the islands of Comoros and Mayotte, Eswatini and Lesotho.

“As a business, we have undergone significant change over recent years and, through close alignment with The Coca-Cola Company, we have strategically repositioned our business to ensure that we are well-placed to capture the African growth promise,” said CCBA CEO Jacques Vermeulen. “We look forward to introduce you to our business and the compelling growth opportunities we see across our markets.”
