This investment has also led to increased local sourcing of raw materials and provided valuable new skills to employees. The company’s growth journey aligns with a responsible and ethical approach, making a positive impact both within and beyond the bottling process.

Of particular pride to Magoola and CCBU was the award in the category of “doing good for people, society, and the environment.” This recognition resonates with the vision of CCBA, their parent company, to refresh Africa daily and contribute to the continent’s overall betterment.
