Coca-Cola Amatil (ASX: CCL) is an Australian company that bottles and distributes The Coca-Cola Company soft drinks and other beverages in several countries. It is the largest non-alcoholic beverage company in the Pacific Rim.
Coca-Cola Amatil has diversified and expanded in the past six years to include water, sports and energy drinks, fruit juices, coffee, ready-to-drink teas and packaged ready-to-eat fruit and vegetable products. In August 2006, Coca-Cola Amatil entered into a joint venture with brewer SABMiller to distribute their beer brands into Australia, and from April 2007 began selling and distributing the products of spirits distributor Maxxium (later renamed Beam Global Spirits & Wine).
Coca Cola Amatil distributes a number of sparkling, still and alcoholic beverages. These include
- Diet Coke
- Coke Zero
- Sprite Zero
- Lemon & Paeroa
- Deep Spring mineral waters
- Kirks soft drinks
- Mount Franklin bottled water
- Pump bottled water

It currently employs 16,100 people in five countries across the Asia-Pacific, and had after-tax profits of A$506 million in the 2010 calendar year on EBIT of $844million. Its share price consistently outperformed the ASX 200 market index over the past few years.
The Coca-Cola Company owns a minority interest in Coca-Cola Amatil, as it does with each of its primary bottlers in the Coca-Cola system, which it calls "anchor bottlers" around the world.
The company's Australian origins date back to 1904 as the tobacco company British Tobacco (Australia). Its first foray into soft drinks came in 1964 with the purchase of Coca-Cola Bottlers (Perth), and the company was listed on the Australian Stock Exchange in 1972.
Soft drinks and snack foods gradually became the primary focus of the company, which was renamed Amatil Limited in 1977. It began to expand bottling operations overseas in Europe, purchasing a Coca-Cola bottling plant in Austria in 1982 and expanding into Fiji and New Zealand in 1987. A majority stake was purchased by The Coca-Cola Company in 1989, although today its ownership is 30.4%.
The snack food operations were sold in 1992, and European operations were spun off into a new company, Coca-Cola Beverages, in 1998. Expansion into Asia continued, though Filipino bottling was eventually sold to San Miguel Brewery and parent The Coca-Cola Company.
Its most recent purchase activity has been the acquisition of fruit producer and packager SPC Ardmona Ltd. Until May 2007, the company also operated the online music store, Coke Tunes, out of New Zealand.
CCA has facilities all over Australia, with key sites at Northmead (NSW), North sydney (NSW), Richlands (Qld), Moorabin (VIC), Thebarton (SA) and Kewdale (WA).
In 2008 the company released a series of so-called "myth-busting" advertisements in Australia featuring actress Kerry Armstrong. The ads attempted to discredit health concerns consumers had about Coca Cola, including that it "makes you fat" and "rots your teeth". The company was forced to withdraw the claims and publish corrections in newspapers after the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission ruled they misled consumers.
