This is Derek Miller Speaking on Business. Over 200 years ago John Swire & Sons began a global trading company in England that today includes Swire Coca-Cola in Utah. Here’s Chief Financial Officer James Sloan with more.


Swire Coca-Cola has been a part of Utah since 1978. Headquartered in Draper, we employ roughly 1,300 people here in Utah and our entire territory covers 13 western states. Swire’s purpose is simple: To deliver refreshment to the communities we call home.

We manufacture, bottle, and deliver Coca-Cola and more than 50 other beverage brands, to your favorite stores, arenas and community events, striving to be the best community partner wherever we do business.

As residents of Utah, we know the importance of protecting the environment, so we partner with organizations throughout our territory to conserve water, reduce carbon emissions and increase recycling.

We are a strong, stable company that believes in putting its people first – our associates, our business partners and our communities. If you would like to learn more about your neighbors who make and deliver your favorite beverages, visit At Swire Coca-Cola, we’re Driven to Win!


John Pemberton invented Coca-Cola in 1886 but only sold 25 bottles in that first year. Today, over 10,000 soft drinks from Coca-Cola are consumed every second of every day world-wide. I’m Derek Miller with the Salt Lake Chamber, Speaking on Business.
