“With innovation at the core of our new business strategy, we will be able to create more opportunities for the use of local ingredients and other inputs.

We’re listening carefully and working to ensure that consumers are firmly at the centre of our business so we can continue to grow responsibly,” said Nelly Wainaina, Head of Marketing Kenya and Tanzania, Coca-Cola Central, East and West Africa (CEWA) Limited.

“We’ve been very clear that for us to drive sustainable, profitable growth of our brands, we also need to encourage and enable our consumers to control added sugar consumption.
