KATHMANDU, Sept 29: The American Chamber of Commerce in Nepal (AmCham Nepal), representing American-invested businesses in the country, recently concluded its 'Membership Learning' initiative at Bottlers Nepal (Terai) Limited, one of its member companies.
Ajit Shah, chairperson of AmCham, expressed that this program provided a unique opportunity for AmCham members to engage with Bottlers Nepal, the oldest American company operating in Nepal, gaining insights into the company's operations, production processes, quality standards, sustainability initiatives, and its contributions to the local community.
Bottlers Nepal not only manufactures beverages but also plays an active role in bottle recycling, contributing to environmental sustainability.
As part of the event, AmCham members were treated to a visit to Narayani Model Secondary School, where Coca-Cola highlighted its collaborative efforts with Splash Nepal in implementing 'Rain Water Harvesting' and 'Ground Water Recharge' projects. These initiatives have resulted in improved access to clean drinking water for approximately 3,000 students at the school.
Ajit Shah emphasized that this program, organized by AmCham's Networking Committee, aims to foster interactions and deep understanding between member companies by visiting each other's offices. This initiative serves as a platform to strengthen business partnerships and collectively address challenges within the business community.
Aakash Golchha, a board member of AmCham, extended his gratitude to the Coca-Cola team for hosting the AmCham delegation and providing valuable insights.
The 'Membership Learning' series was led by AmCham Nepal President Ajit Shah and Pramod Rai of Cedar Gates Technologies, with coordination by Sneh Rajbhandari, Public Affairs Director of Bottlers Nepal.
