Nigerian Bottling Company (NBC), the sole bottler of Coca-Cola products in Nigeria has announced a commitment to use an average of 50% recycled content in its bottled drinks packaging by 2030.

According to NBC Legal, Public Affairs and Communications Director Sade Morgan, the company was also working on developing plant-based resins, and reducing the plastics used in packaging.

Through investments in sustainability, Coca-Cola is seeking to enhance customer satisfaction by improving on the quality and standards of its products to meet their target.

This is a further dedication towards the health of its customers, a major priority for the company which has also taken initiatives to produce hygienic beverages for healthy consumption.

NBC said it will continue to invest in the sector to ensure sustainable development, economic growth, boosting education and youth employment.

Some of their engagements include efforts to weather the challenge of the insurgency in the North and ensuring a strong presence through its nine manufacturing facilities spread across the country.

Expansion plans include investing US$600 million by 2020 aimed at expanding its product offerings to include flavoured and condensed milk, ice tea and bottled water.

In 2016, Coca-Cola acquired an initial 40% stake in Nigeria’s dairy and beverages producer Chi Limited.
