Mexico City, Mexico, September 7th, 2020.-Arca Continental, as part of the Coca-Cola Mexican Industry, participated in delivering ventilators to FUNSALUD (a Mexican foundation to promote health) for treating patients infected with Covid-19.


The ceremony was attended by Secretary of Foreign Relations, Marcelo Ebrard; the Executive President of FUNSALUD, Héctor Valle; the Dean of Tec Salud, Guillermo Torre, as well as several representatives of civil society.


The ventilators are made in Mexico and are part of a collaborative initiative which includes the government, private companies, and society in general in the framework of the Covid-19 pandemic.


The donation is part of Arca Continental’s social investment strategy to face the pandemic, based on which resources have been reallocated to three main pillars: Supporting the health system, aiding vulnerable groups, and protecting the value chain.


Social investments have included, among others, economic and in-kind donations for furnishing Covid hospitals; delivering 200,000 recycled PET face shields to health professionals; and distributing close to two million liters of hydration.


As part of our efforts to help vulnerable groups, the company donated more than 500,000 liters of clean water and beverages, 10 tons of food products, and 50,000 face masks in territories where we operate.


Arca Continental also contributed to more than 200,000 neighborhood stores with sanitization kits, partitions to promote safe distancing, as well as other enhancements enabling them to operate safely during quarantine conditions.


“It is only with the collaborative efforts of private companies, society, and the government that we will be able to address our country’s challenges and move on from a crisis situation to a new era of growth and development. These efforts need to focus on the general well-being of the Mexican people, with a sense of urgency, but also with a long-term view”, stated Enrique Pérez Barba, director of Mexico Beverages for Arca Continental, during the event.

Arca Continental underscores its commitment to collaborate with both the government and the communities in society’s benefit and reinforces its will to contribute to the positive development of every community where it operates.
