Our socio-economic performance is a sure sign that consistent steps are leading to the desired achievements. In the past year, the Coca-Cola System invested BGN 131 million in Bulgarian business, and our economic impact is expressed in the added value of BGN 640 million. We generate 1% of the country's tax revenue and each job in the System maintains 4 external jobs. And what we believe in is that when the people you work with share the company's mission, vision, and values, success is not delayed." said Stefan Galabov on the recognition.
