Producer of non-alcoholic soft drinks, a joint venture, Coca-Cola Ichimligi Uzbekiston LTD. LLC has been active in the market of Uzbekistan since its registration in 1993. The official opening of the company took place in March 1994. On this day, the first production enterprise, located on Besh-Agach area in the city of Tashkent, began operating. The first soft drinks produced in Uzbekistan were poured into 0.25-liter glass bottles.
Coca-Cola Ichimligi Uzbekiston LTD LLC was the first company in Uzbekistan to deliver its products to customers on its trucks. Soon the company focused on two key objectives: increasing the production capacity of the enterprise and developing marketing and product marketing strategies. Initially, the company sold most of its products in the markets of the city of Tashkent. To increase the availability of products throughout Uzbekistan in May 1996, the company launched another bottling plant in Kibray district of Tashkent region. Here, three production lines produced Coca-Cola, Fanta, Sprite and BonAqua, which were bottled in 1.5-liter plastic (PET) bottles. This type of packaging allowed the company to deliver products even to the most remote regions of the country.
In February 1997, another plant was launched in the city of Namangan to provide drinks for the entire Fergana Valley.
A few months later, in June 1997, the fourth plant in Uzbekistan was opened, this time in the city of Urgench, to supply the western part of the republic with high-quality products of the world famous manufacturer.
Within the framework of the long-term development strategy of the company, in August 1998, the opening ceremony of the new modern Mega plant in Bektemir district of the city of Tashkent was held, instead of the two previously operated plants in Besh-Agach and Kibray, mentioned above. During this period, the Mega Plant was the largest Coca-Cola plant in Central Asia.
Starting production in 1993 with several people, today the company has grown into one of the largest food industry enterprises in the republic, with a team of nearly a thousand and a half professionals looking for bringing a joy and pleasure to their customers every day. During its existence in Uzbekistan, the company has expanded the network of branches, distribution centers and ensured the availability of produced beverages throughout the country. In addition to availability, another important reason why people choose Coca-Cola products is the world-famous product quality. The drinks produced by the company meet international quality standards.
