Cape Town – Coca-Cola Beverages Africa (CCBA) opened its doors on Monday, two months after the Competition Commission approved a merger between SABMiller [JSE:SAB], the Coca-Cola Company and Gutsche Family Investments.

Africa's largest Coca-Cola bottler was formed through the combination of African non-alcoholic ready-to-drink bottling interests of the above companies, with the transaction concluded on 2 July.

It will produce and distribute about 40% of all Coca-Cola beverage volumes in Africa and will manufacture and sell 40 still and sparkling brands from more than 30 African bottling plants.
