Coca-Cola was the first commercial sponsor of the Olympic games, at the 1928 games in Amsterdam, and has been an Olympics sponsor ever since. Delegation is The Key To Success seeks a refreshment. Coca-Cola’s bottling system has the largest and most widespread production and distribution network in the world. The Coca-Cola Company isn’t one giant company. It’s a system of small companies.

Most of the time, The Coca-Cola Company produces only a syrup concentrate, which it sells to bottlers throughout the world who hold Coca-Cola franchises for one or more geographical areas. The bottlers produce the final drink by mixing the syrup with filtered water and sweeteners and then carbonate it before putting it in cans and bottles, which the bottlers then sell and distribute to retail stores, vending machines, restaurants and food service distributors. The Company operates a worldwide franchise system supplying syrups and concentrates to over 1,200 bottling operations, (there are more than 350 in the US alone!) which involves many local companies and suppliers in the 200 countries where Coca-Cola is sold. The bottling companies distribute the world’s favorite brand using the most sophisticated technology and distribution they couldn’t reach the distant markets. They had a system that was a lot like in the developed world, using a large truck rolling down the street. Africa, however has many remote places where it’s hard to find a good road. Coke noticed something. They noticed that local people were buying the product in bulk and then reselling it in these hard-to-reach places. They took a bit of time to learn a strategy. In 1990, they decided to start training the local entrepreneurs by giving them small loans. They were able to set up micro-distribution centers. Those local entrepreneurs then hired sales people who would go out with bicycles and pushcarts to sell their product. Some 3,000 of these centers now exist employing about 15,000 people in Africa. In Tanzania and Uganda, these centers make up 90% of Coke’s sales. networks available.
