One of the world's top 50 companies is moving its center, which has a turnover of $17billion, to Turkey.

The global player, world's largest beverage company Coca Cola has decided to manage a significant proportion of its global operations from Turkey by moving one of its centers to the country.

Coca Cola is planning to its Eastern Europe, Russia, Middle Asia, Caucasus, Middle East and all-Africa center to Turkey. So company is expected to manage almost two fifths of its global operations from Turkey. With the new development, approximately 30 top-level executives working at Coca Cola Company's Europe operations in Paris and London will relocate to Istanbul. In the meantime, Muhtar Kent, a Turkish businessman, has become global giant Coca Cola's President and Chief Operating Officer(COO) since December 2007; read news release.


  1. Interesting! All the major companies have gone global. It would seem Turkey has become quite an attractive place to do business.


  2. Very interesting, and probably a very wise move.

    Your picture looks so cool and refreshing. It is so hot here that I could use a tall glass of refreshment. And, I love those green glasses.

  3. Hi Nihal! Back home and profiting from the Portugal’s Day holiday, I’m trying to catch up your posts.
    I thought you were going to leave a comment at Blogtrotter, which has now landed in Santiago de Compostela, Spain, last Saturday! Sorry! No Coca-Cola CEO could stop Ronado & Co. last Saturday!
    Hope you enjoy, and have a nice rest of the week!
