History of CBCL

While the first bottle of imported Coca-Cola was sold in Cambodia in the early 1960s, it was in 1993 that Cambodia Beverage Company began producing the Kingdom’s favourite refreshing beverages from our factory on the banks of the Tonle Sap in Phnom Penh’s Russey Keo district.

That first plant produced our three most iconic brands, Coke, Fanta and Sprite, in cans before undergoing a US$30 million upgrade in 2008 to install new production lines for PET plastic bottles.

Since 2014 we have greatly expanded the range of drinks we produce to satisfy Cambodians’ changing tastes and now proudly produce popular brands like Aquarius, Dasani Water, Minute Maid, Mutant, Thunder, Fuze Tea, Schweppes and more.

With the construction of our new US$100 million bottling plant, inaugurated by HE Samdech Techo Akka Moha Hun Sen in December 2015, our old factory has been transformed into our new corporate offices.

Our new state of the art plant, in Phnom Penh’s Special Economic Zone, is one of the most advanced and environmentally friendly production facilities in Cambodia, offering a fantastic working environment for our diverse and talented workforce.One of the nation’s largest solar farms, covering 2.5 hectares on the roof of our new plant, supplies around one-third of our

power while other key environmental features ensure we minimize the environmental impact of our production processes.

CBC is one of Cambodia’s leading employers, with over 900 staff directly employed, and one of its most established companies with a proven, long-term commitment to Cambodia’s economic success and development.

We are also one of the most innovative companies in the Kingdom, not just in our products but also in our operations, where we are a leader in the digital transformation of Cambodia’s economy using AI and other powerful business tools to revolutionise the way we work.

We are proud of how far we have come as a company in the last six decades, but this is only the beginning. We continue to set ourselves ambitious targets, not just for our commercial operations but also on our journey to a World Without Waste, increased female representation in our workforce, greater access to clean water and a digitally transformed economy that will benefit the entire Kingdom.
