An extraordinary situation such as COVID-19, calls for empathy, care, out-of-the-box thinking.
  • Coca-Cola has decided to temporarily shut its production.
  • It said that it will remain in touch with the local authorities and the central government to address this challenge.

The COVID-19 outbreak has proven to be a global pandemic of an unprecedented scale and resulted in a challenging time for all of us across nations and therefore, Coca-Cola has decided to temporarily shut its production.

“At this moment, the health, safety and well-being of our employees is of paramount importance to us. Therefore, in compliance with the Government directive, we at the Coca-Cola system in India have temporarily suspended production at our manufacturing facilities. At the same time, as a responsible Total Beverage Company, we understand our responsibility to provide the essential beverages to our consumers in these trying times. To cater to this urgent demand, we’re operating our manufacturing facilities in very small number complying to the local Government’s regulations and safety of all our employees,” read its statement.

Coca-Cola India is in regular touch with its counterparts across the world. It is trying to understand and implement some of the learnings mutually. It said that an extraordinary situation such as COVID-19, calls for empathy, care, out-of-the-box thinking and a more coordinated and centralized approach to help us emerge successful from this challenging phase.

“We have adopted a purpose-driven approach to ensure complete safety and well-being of our people, products and assets; adapt to the new realities and changes in our consumers’ lives and attempting to help the Government and communities to make a difference wherever and however we can,” said its statement to the press.

Coca-Cola’s entire system will remain in touch with the local authorities and the central government to provide whatever humble support we can to address this challenge.
