Coca-Cola Consolidated has signed a five-year extension as the official non-alcoholic beverage provider of the RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing.
Coca-Cola products have been served at the RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing since the PGA TOUR event debuted in 1969 at Harbour Town Golf Links, 55 years ago.
“We are proud to be associated with such an iconic brand who has a history of helping others. Coca-Cola Consolidated’s continued support for almost a half century is unprecedented and has quenched the thirst of our loyal spectators and sponsors,” said Steve Wilmot, President of the Heritage Classic Foundation.
“We are excited to continue our partnership with the Heritage Classic Foundation,” said Heather Hucks, VP of Consumer Connections. “Coca-Cola and RBC Heritage both have rich roots in the Lowcountry. For 55 years, we have been refreshing fans as the official non-alcoholic beverage provider at the only annual PGA TOUR event in South Carolina. We look forward to partnering with the tournament to positively impact the community through our sustainability efforts.”
Coca-Cola Consolidated developed a local program designed to help collect and recycle packaging from the tournament. Consolidated partnered with local organizations, like i2Recycle and Bluffton High School, to renew this recycled material into new packaging.
“The Heritage Classic Foundation’s partnership with Coca-Cola Consolidated continues to grow and positively affect the community. The tournament recycling programs we have implemented together have kept over 100,000 bottles and cans out of landfills,” said Wilmot.
The 55th annual RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing will take place April 10-16, 2023 over the famed Harbour Town Golf Links. Tournament tickets are on sale at www.rbcheritage.com.
Coca-Cola Consolidated has more than 1,300 teammates working at 7 facilities in the state, including a production center in Bishopville, SC, a cooperative managed by Coca-Cola Consolidated.
