Swire Coca-Cola Hong Kong ("SCCHK") has been investing in major upgrades to its production equipment that will increase efficiency and enhance the sustainability of its operations, as well as introducing better and more diverse products to meet market needs.

With its Returnable Glass Bottle (RGB) production line undergoing an upgrade, glass bottles for Coca-Cola and other sparkling flavours will be taking a "holiday" for the first time since Swire began producing products of The Coca-Cola Company in Hong Kong in 1965. A new, sustainable version of the glass bottle will be launched in 2022, with an updated design that uses recycled materials that are lighter and easier to carry. A range of alternative packaging choices, including tall cans, mini cans and PET bottles will be available in the meantime.

SCCHK will also commission its new aseptic production line in the first half of 2021 – a crucial step towards achieving the company's sustainable development goals. This will enable key manufacturing processes to be conducted in a sterile environment, bringing abundant benefits to product quality, as well as further reducing SCCHK's carbon footprint.
