Created through the merger of Embotelladoras Arca and Grupo Continental in 2011, Arca Continental is Latin America’s second-largest Coca-Cola bottler and one of the largest in the world.
Its strategy is straightforward: to be the leader in the food and beverage markets in which it operates.
Last year, it bought snack food companies US-based Wise Foods and Industrias Alimenticias Ecuatorianas (Inalesca) in Ecuador. Its most recent acquisitions are expected to generate net sales of close to $400 million. The salty snack producers complement the soft drink business, and will expand Arca Continental’s operations and marketing capabilities. They also add to the company’s growing snack busines
Arca Continental plans further growth in Mexico and abroad through acquisitions in a consolidating sector
