Message from Calin Dragan, Representative Director, President & CEO (excerpt)

The CCBJI Group asks every employee to improve their skills and grow constantly. In a fast-changing business environment, we cannot win in the market and survive if we are hung up on our past successes. During the COVID-19 pandemic, we changed many things: our business model, organization, processes, and the ways we work. I expect you all to continue learning and growing without being afraid to change. We take great pride in our Coca-Cola products and brand. Every day, we strive to earn the trust and support of our stakeholders. We are committed to two important goals: the recovery and growth of our own business and leading a sustainable beverage industry while preserving the natural environment. To this end, we take important initiatives as a Coca-Cola system member. We still have a lot to do, but with the help of you all joining us today, we will pull together as One Team. In the CCBJI Group, everyone works to create value for our stakeholders, no matter what role they play. I hope you all will grow and do great things in your work here.
