CCBSA has shifted over R4.6bn of procurement spend to black owned companies, exceeding the target in the second year of the plan’s execution.
CCBSA also recognises that to give effect to the plan, it must support SMMEs with active supplier development.

The foundation was formed as a result of the Competition Commision conditions agreed upon as part of the large merger between Coca-Cola Bottlers in South Africa.
