Ambassador Eric Rubin took part in an event commemorating the 20th anniversary of Coca Cola’s Kostinbrod Production Center. The Coca Cola system employs 2,000 Bulgarians and produces 320 million liters annually. It pays out 53 million euro to local suppliers per year. The event marked also the launch of a five million leva expansion at Kostinbrod Production Center and a brand new 750ml bottle. Coca Cola is also a strong proponent of corporate social responsibility. It has partnered with Teach for Bulgaria, Junior Achievement, Education 2030 Initiative, Now We Move Project, as well as children’s and sports programs.
