Alison Watkins, Managing Director, Coca-Cola Amatil

Without doubt, communities and government organisations did an outstanding job supporting one another during the bushfire crisis. In our case we were able to provide immediate help to our customers and communities with our teams going above and beyond their day job to provide practical support on the ground. We were able to donate water to impacted customers and communities without sufficient drinking water, as well as Powerade, Coca-Cola and water for firefighters. We also supported our employees to assist the firefighting and recovery efforts too and provided an ongoing support package for over 2000 of our impacted customers.

I was very proud of all our teams in Australia, their efforts and generosity, and how Coca-Cola Amatil truly came together to help those affected by the devastation of the fires during our busiest time of the year.
