Through the conveyor belt came clinking, tinkling and jingling our all-time favourite ‘SPRITE’. And we, BIBSians stood awestruck with the cacophonous sounds all around. We stood beaming when we were served with the freshly filled bottles of SPRITE from the conveyor belt itself. That’s how you start a factory visit when you are at COCA-COLA.
It all began from grading the RGB (Recyclable Glass Bottles) to its inclusion into the process of cleaning in a solution at a temperature of 750C.
Then, through the automated conveyor belt these cleaned bottles after human inspection enters the most awaited chamber of the factory, any guess? Yes, absolutely it’s the filling chamber. Over there we were informed about the “PARAMIX”, the container where the final beverage were made out of the mixture of ready syrup along with CO2 and treated H2O.
Well, the process doesn’t end there, later to this, after another round of human inspection, came the turn of capping the bottles followed by casing. Doesn’t that sound interesting?
Apart from the process, they even informed us about some more exciting figures like 12000 of Pet bottles per hour are produced everyday which are delivered throughout Kolkata and South 24 Pgs.
As a wrap up session our host from COCA-COLA exhibited a PowerPoint presentation, with an approach of learning i.e. practice to theory” which exactly BIBS follows in their curriculum.
