Coca-Cola FEMSA (KOF) began in 1979 when FEMSA acquired its first Coca-Cola system franchise in the Valley of Mexico and in the Southeastern part of the Country. With the acquisition of the largest franchise in the Coca-Cola system in Latin America (PANAMCO) in May of 2003, this Business Unit became the second largest Coca-Cola bottler in the world, representing close to 10% of worldwide Coca-Cola sales. It is the second largest bottler in Latin America, distributing approximately 2.6 million cases per year, equivalent to about 40% of Coca-Cola sales in the region.
In January 2007, in partnership with The Coca Cola Company, KOF acquired Jugos del Valle (JDV) with whom it will attain a strong presence in the non-carbonated beverage market of Mexico and Brazil.
At the end of 2008 Coca-Cola FEMSA acquired the bottled water business Agua de los Angeles in Estado de México. This operation will permit Coca-Cola FEMSA to grow in the water market segment and to strengthen its beverage portfolio.
