About TCCEC Internship Campus Drive 2019

The TCCEC Internship Drive is an initiative by The Coca-Cola Company, to provide significant work experience to students thereby enriching the local talent pool. The aim of the drive is to build a bridge between education and work, providing real opportunities for career development to the students.

From an intern’s perspective, an internship at Coca-Cola completes students' university background through a practical experience, gives them the opportunity to demonstrate their talent, build a network for present/future job opportunities, make them understand what a job/role is and how a company works, and finally helps them understand their potential and discover a personal and professional project.

About The Coca-Cola Export Corporation

Soon after the country’s independence in 1947, Coca-Cola came to Pakistan in 1953. Like in every other country where it operates, the Coca-Cola business in Pakistan is a local business. The beverages are produced locally, providing employment to Pakistani citizens, and the product range and marketing reflects Pakistani tastes and lifestyle. The Coca-Cola Company has been operating in Pakistan for over 60 years under the license of The Coca-Cola Export Corporation, Pakistan Branch (TCCEC-PB) which is headquartered in Lahore.

The first plant was opened in Karachi and others major cities followed. In 1996, Coca-Cola Beverages Pakistan Limited (CCBPL) started the process of acquiring and investing in local franchised bottling operations to augment quality, availability and image of Coca-Cola products in Pakistan. In 2010, CCBPL’s shares and management rights were acquired by Coca-Cola İçecek (CCI), a Turkey based bottler of The Coca-Cola Company.

Where TCCEC owns the trademark for Coca-Cola and copyrights for all marketing collateral in Pakistan, CCI Pakistan produces, distributes and sells sparkling and still beverages of The Coca-Cola Company in Pakistan. After the introduction of Coca-Cola, Fanta was introduced in 1965, Sprite was introduced in 1972, and over a span of 60 years Coca-Cola has evolved into the Best Brands (Beverages) in Pakistan (PAS Awards, 2016-17). With an enduring commitment to building sustainable communities, the Company is focused on initiatives that reduce its environmental footprint, support active, healthy living, create a safe, inclusive work environment for its associates, and enhance the economic development of the communities in which it operates. Coca-Cola Pakistan, along with its 6 bottling plants in the region employs over 4,550 people in across Pakistan currently.
