Production process in Ploiesti plant

We've focused on creating innovative, high-quality products for our consumers and maintaining excellent health and safety conditions for our employees. Currently, 90% of our suppliers are local. At the same time, we play an active role in the communities in which we operate through local programs and initiatives.

In Romania, we operate tree plants: in Timisoara, Ploiesti and Poiana Negrii. All three plants of Coca‑Cola HBC Romania have achieved the European Water Stewardship recognition - the most important distinction for plants aiming to reach top performances in reducing water consumption. Romania was the first country within the Coca‑Cola HBC Group with all the plants certified according to this standard.

All our plants have achieved certifications that confirm our commitment to comply with the highest standards in the production process:

  • Quality (ISO 9001:2008)
  • Environment (ISO 14001:2005)
  • Health & Safety (OHSAS 18001:2008)
  • Food Safety (ISO 22000:2005)

In addition, our management system includes the requirements of the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) and the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) system.

In the plant, all beverages are produced and bottled complying with the highest food safety standards. Thus, regardless of the product of their choice, our customers and consumers always enjoy quality beverages. This commitment is backed by the quality management and food safety system certified in accordance with international standards ISO 9001 and ISO 22000, and also by our own policies on Food Quality and Safety and by the global standards of The Coca‑Cola Company.

Furthermore, Coca‑Cola HBC Romania closely monitors production processes and holds specific test programs for all stages of bottling. For example, on all bottling lines for returnable glass packaging, electronic equipment for inspection of bottles is mounted. This can identify the smallest foreign body that could end up in the finished product.
