Coca-Cola Amatil has scored a big slice of new business after signing an exclusive supply agreement with local fast food restaurant chain Pizza Hut.

The five-year agreement will see CCA become the sole supplier for a range of beverages including carbonated soft drinks, still and sparkling water, flavoured milk and juice in Australia’s 285 Pizza Hut restaurants.

CCA's beverage range which includes Coca-Cola, Sprite, Mount Franklin and Barista Bros, and the agreement follows other business wins for CCA with Hungry Jack’s, Red Rooster, Oporto and Hilton Hotels.

CCAs managing director of Australian Beverages Peter West said the string of wins were solid building blocks for Amatil’s Australian Beverages’ growth.

CEO of Pizza Hut Australia Phil Reed said CCAs products were popular with the pizza chain's customers.

“We are very excited to be working with such a strong business partner, and one which shares our commitment to the customer experience.”

The five-year agreement with Pizza Hut is effective from this month, with CCA beverages to roll out in Pizza Hut restaurants over coming weeks, alongside new cold drink equipment.
