About Refresco


Our drinks on every table. That's our vision. So, yes, it's safe to say we're ambitious. We're thirsty for more, constantly looking to the future. To new products, new services, new markets, new customers.  Through our people applying our core values of ‘Responsible’, ‘Entrepreneurial’, ‘Excellent’, ‘Market Driven’ and ‘Innovative’ we have grown substantially since 1999 and we will continue to be successful.

Refresco is the world’s largest independent bottler soft drinks and fruit juices for retailers and branded customers. With production in Europe, North America and Mexico our global sourcing and local R&D capabilities offer an almost unlimited variety of products, manufactured to customer specifications and requirements.

Refresco offers an extensive range of product and packaging combinations from 100% fruit juices, vegetable juices, nectars, water and water +, CSD (carbonated soft drinks), energy and sports drinks, seasonal and speciality drinks and RTD (ready to drink) tea carton, PET, Aseptic PET, cans and glass.

In addition to the efficiency of our bottling processes, we can also provide our customers with total supply chain solutions – from planning and sourcing of raw materials and packaging through to warehousing and transportation.

We focus on providing high customer service levels as well as core innovations through the introduction of new packages, flavours and varieties of soft drinks and fruit juices. In (co-)designing new products, we share extensive knowledge of market trends, local consumer preferences, product formulas, raw materials, and new production technologies.

We are able to develop new concepts and bring these to market in an extremely short time frame.

Our head office is based in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

In January 2018 Refresco announced completion of the acquisition of the bottling activities of Cott Beverages.
