Raw Materials and Manufacturing
 
Expenditures for concentrates constitute our largest individual raw material cost. We buy various soft drink concentrates from PepsiCo and other soft drink companies and mix them with other ingredients in our plants, including water, carbon dioxide and sweeteners. Artificial sweeteners are included in the concentrates we purchase for diet soft drinks. Additionally, we buy juice concentrates for our Sandora, Sadochok and Toma juice brands.
 
In addition to concentrates, we purchase sweeteners, glass and PET bottles, aluminum cans, closures, paperboard cartons, bag-in-box packages, syrup containers, other packaging materials and carbon dioxide. We purchase raw materials and supplies, other than concentrates, from multiple suppliers. PepsiCo acts as our agent for the purchase of several such raw materials (see “Related Party Transactions” in Item 7 and Note 22 to the Consolidated Financial Statements for further discussion of PepsiCo’s procurement services).
 
A portion of our contractual cost of cans, PET bottles and sweeteners is subject to price fluctuations based on commodity price changes in aluminum, PET resin, corn and sugar. We may enter into firm price commitments for future purchases of commodities that enable us to establish a fixed purchase price within a defined time period. We may also periodically use derivative financial instruments to hedge the price risk associated with anticipated purchases of commodities.

The inability of suppliers to deliver concentrates or other products to us could adversely affect operating results. None of the raw materials or supplies in use is currently in short supply, although factors outside of our control could adversely impact the future availability of these supplies.
