Consumer health

We promote health and wellness as we believe this is a very important topic today – both for our business and for the communities in which we work.

Delivering safe products is essential for our business’s economic, environmental and social impacts, helping to support community trust, customer satisfaction and choice. 

Products and ingredients

We focus on being innovative with the products we offer, including expanding our range of zero-calorie drinks and reducing the calorie content of many of the products in our portfolio. We also promote active lifestyles and clear labelling on packaging.

The cornerstone of good nutrition and dietary habits is balance, variety and moderation. That's why we subscribe to the nutrition principle that all foods and drinks can have a place in a sensible, balanced diet when combined with regular physical activity. 

Hydration

Drinking appropriate quantities of liquids is essential for our physical and mental well-being.

Water makes up, on average, between 60 and 65 percent of our total body weight. Even without taking any exercise, our body loses between 2 and 3 litres of liquid a day. If it isn’t replaced, we can get dehydrated, which may lead to headaches, tiredness, low attention levels and reduced degrees of physical performance.

Hydration is particularly important before, during and after exercise, as well as in hot weather. It’s also important to drink before becoming thirsty as this is already a sign of a certain level of dehydration.

All soft drinks help to keep us hydrated. Water content plays an important role in the proper functioning of our bodies by enabling hormones, nutrients and oxygen to circulate, regulating the body temperature, and assisting in the elimination of waste products and toxins.

Supporting active lifestyles

We take a leadership role in promoting healthier, more sustainable lifestyles to consumers and make sure that our products can be integrated into an active, healthy lifestyle consistent with a sensible, balanced diet and regular physical activity.

What’s more, we also support our people in living healthy and active lifestyles. This is more than just talk. We promote employee wellbeing with gym memberships, medical check-ups and the opportunity to take part in Coca‑Cola HBC and community sport and healthy living programs across the countries in which we operate. 

It is worth mentioning that in Poland, every year, we organize a special football tournament for all our employees - Coca‑Cola Hellenic Cup. During this contest, our people have a chance to participate in football matches within teams from nation-wide locations. The initiative has gathered a lot of publicity and is one of the bright examples of our internal acitivies, promoting active lifestyle.
