“I am happy that coco cola has invested in social corporate responsibility and the government of Uganda commends the company for the significant investment by investing in recycling of organic plastic bottles, that being the first company to construct a recollection centre since 2010, however more recycling plants need to be planted . Thank u for embracing the Buy Uganda and Build Uganda initiative through purchasing the raw materials and the staff employed ,” She said.
The President through the minister applauded the company for supporting the local market by focusing on producing local drinks especially because they support our local farmers like the milk product launched last year which supports milk from Ugandan cows and we will support the company.
Our economy is largely agricultural but in order to modernise it ,we must focus on four sectors ie Services ,ICT ,commercial agriculture and industry and the four must be linked and CocaCola has continued to provide this linkeage with our support.
