Quality

The quality of our products is a matter of the utmost care for us. Beverages manufactured by Coca‑Cola HBC Poland meet all legal requirements, and exceed them in a number of areas.

Apart from external certifications, Coca‑Cola HBC Poland also uses the internal assessment system in accordance with the company’s Quality Policy. We seek to make quality processes subject to both external certification, including ISO 9001 norms, and internal one. Each of our plants currently holds the quality management system - ISO 9001 certificate. 

Each of our plants currently holds an ISO 9001 certificate.

The quality certificates have already been granted to our plants, and are renewed every three years by independent audit companies. Moreover, regulatory audits are carried out each year independently of the three-year certification cycle.

Coca‑Cola HBC Polska has also covers Cold Drink Operations, Logistic and Sales Departments with the ISO 9001 certification system. Consequently, the cooling and vending equipment used by our company, as well as all warehousing, distribution and sales processes are subject to external quality norms.

Environment Protection 

The Environment Management System compliant with the environmental management system ISO 14001 norm has been implemented at all our production plants for a number of years.

Separately from the external ISO 14001 standard, Coca‑Cola HBC Polska has introduced a code of conduct in the field of environment protection, including principles of responsible environment management, numerous standards related to the quality of environmental impact (such as acceptable parameters of treated waste water), as well as programmes that monitor and minimize any negative environmental impact. 

EWS zdjęcie organizacja

European Water Stewardship (EWS)

All of our plants are certified on a gold status in water management system based on European Water Stewardships requirements. The main goal of EWS is: to demonstrate a real water stewardship, to recognize excellence at every stage of water management from the protection of water sources, through efficient use of water, to the quality of wastewater released into the environment while requiring engagement with all water users and stakeholders in the community. 

It's worth mentioning that all of Coca‑Cola HBC Polska plants are the first certified in Poland from all of the companies.

Food Safety

In 2009 Tylicz plant was certified for conformity with the Food Safety PAS 220:2008. The food safety system specifies requirements for prerequisite programmes to assist in controlling food safety risks within the manufacturing processes of international food supply chains. Radzymin Plant was certified in 2010 and the Staniątki Plant - in 2011. 

HACCP

Our Company implemented Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) system as a tool for ensuring food safety. We implemented HACCP system many years before it became a requirement of Polish law. 

HACCP - Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point System. The key aim of HACCP is to eliminate hazards to consumer health. It is a method tool to ensure the health safety of the beverages we produce. 

HACCP enables the identification of possible hazards, allows to determine the impact of a given hazard on the consumer’s health, assesses the probability of the hazard occurring and defines methods of limiting the risk.

The HACCP programme is developed based on a number of documents, including: 

  • Food and Catering Safety Act of 24 Oct. 2006
  • External norms, such as Codex Alimentarius, ISO 22000 

Importantly, the HACCP is also developed based on the expertise and experience of employees at a specific plant, who are able to identify additional hazards, not covered by the standards.

In 2008 we began the certification of production plants against the ISO 22000 standard. As with other ISO standards that are not required by the law, we started to implement the system on a voluntary basis. The plant in Staniątki achieved the ISO 22000 certification in 2008. The other two plants were certified in 2009.

Occupational Health and Safety

All four Coca‑Cola Hellenic Poland production plants have already received the OHSAS 18001 certificate, a vital element of the integrated management system. The OHSAS norm is not required under Polish law, but our company decided to implement the system to improve work safety at its plants. 

 

We began the process of implementing the Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OHSAS) in 2006. We could celebrate our success as soon as 2006 – we achieved positive results in the audits carried out by the independent Swiss certification company Societe Generale de Surveillance at our plants in Radzymin and Staniątki . In 2007 the Tylicz plant also achieved the certification. Every year certification by SGS proving efficient functioning of the system in the plants.
