Caribbean Bottling Company (CBC) SA is the benchmark for quality water and juices with more than 400 employees in Haiti and a large distribution network. The company is the local partner of choice for bottling Culligan water, subject to rigorous testing for hygiene and quality as it meets the most stringent legal requirements, including those of the International Bottled Water Association (IBWA). Furthermore, CBC produces and distributes a wide portfolio of juice drinks and teas.
Gaetan Barrau, CEO of CBC, explains: “Delivering a safe and high-quality product, whilst enabling consumer- and price-friendly packaging, can easily present a challenge. This is why we decided to renew our trust in Sidel and their longstanding expertise in PET packaging design and equipment.”
Saving space and resources while expanding production capacity
The partnership between the two companies started a few years ago, when the Haitian bottler installed a Sidel standalone blower, intended to serve a complete line of Culligan water. Marcel Ndoumna, Sales Manager Caribbean & FHPC at Sidel, comments, “Through this initial collaboration, we were able to accompany CBC through a learning journey, particularly in terms of their line’s Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).”
