Supporting our Coke Canada Bottling Family and Customers During COVID-19
Coke Canada Bottling is an independent, family-owned business. Our people are the DNA of our organization. The safety of our 6,000 team members and those we serve is our number one priority.
Our company’s Mission is more critical to us today than ever: to create a better future for our customers, our consumers, our communities and our employees. We’re working around the clock to ensure our products get into the hands of the essential services that Canadians are counting on, like grocery stores, pharmacies, convenience stores, and healthcare facilities. We are proud to be a part of Canadian and provincial critical infrastructures and our hard-working teams are playing vital roles in delivering our customers and consumers the comfort they’re looking for during this difficult time. For over 120 years, our products have delivered optimism to Canadians, and we will continue delivering optimism during these uncertain times.
Since January, we’ve developed new procedures as well as shared tools and information with our employees about how the risk of infection can be reduced. Out of an abundance of caution, we have also implemented additional cleaning and disinfection measures in all of our warehouses, offices and manufacturing facilities. We have reinforced our hygiene protocols, installed additional hand sanitizers, and focused efforts on the cleaning and disinfection of frequently touched surfaces. We are limiting all unnecessary visits and instituting social distancing and holding group meetings virtually whenever possible. We have instituted flexible work from home policies for most of our office staff and only business critical workers are on-site at our facilities. We have cancelled all business travel and are encouraging our field sales teams to connect with customers using digital tools. We have instituted self-isolation policies for anyone who has travelled outside of Canada and we are ensuring that anyone who feels unwell is staying at home.
Additionally, we have implemented new measures to lessen the financial burden on our employees during this difficult time. We have extended short-term disability benefits related to COVID-19 to all employees who don’t already have coverage and are waiving the usual waiting period, so coverage is effective immediately. Any employee that has travelled outside of Canada and who we ask to self-isolate will receive their full pay. For any employees that have to self-isolate for health-based issues and have used all their sick days, we have simplified our short-term disability claims process related to COVID-19 through our benefits program. We’ve also introduced a temporary Special Pay program in recognition of our frontline workers who are helping to make, deliver and merchandise our products.
Many of our local teams are working around the clock to help our local bottler communities during the COVID-19 outbreak. They are focused on donating needed beverages to support healthcare workers and first responders as well as residents of disadvantaged communities. For example, we have donated beverages to the Canadian Red Cross, in partnership with Coca-Cola Limited, to support COVID-19 quarantine centres in Cornwall and Trenton, Ontario.
The Coca-Cola Foundation, the philanthropic arm of The Coca-Cola Company, announced it is immediately awarding a total of $13.5 million USD (approx. $19.59 million CAD) in grants to non-profit organizations that are working on the front lines of humanitarian response to the coronavirus pandemic.
The two Canadian organizations receiving immediate grants are:
Boys & Girls Clubs of Canada: A grant of US$750,000 (~ C$1 million) will help provide food and essentials for families and club employees who are struggling; care for children of emergency health workers; mental health and counseling services; and other emergency needs.
Food Banks Canada: A grant of US$750,000 (~ C$1 million) will help provide food to communities during the outbreak, supporting a network of more than 650 food bank organizations and 4,500 distribution centres.
We are diligently monitoring the COVID-19 situation as it evolves, and ensuring we’re doing the right thing for our employees and the Canadians we serve from coast-to-coast-to coast.
This is a generational-defining moment, and we are all grappling with change and uncertainty. Through it all, we have been amazed by the spirit of community felt across our company and from the partners we work with every day. We will continue to do our part by delivering optimism to Canadians.
