CC1 main sponsor of SHTA Crystal Pineapple Awards


PHILIPSBURG – The St. Maarten Hospitality & Trade Association (SHTA) announced CC1 as its main sponsor for a 2nd year in a row for the 11th annual Crystal Pineapple Awards to be held on Saturday, November 19, at Sonesta Maho Beach Resort & Casino.

CC1 made the generous donation of having all Crystal Pineapple Awards winners receive a bottle of Tequila Rose along with their Award.

“The company believes in awarding employees, volunteers, and associations, etc. to be recognized for adding extra value to the island of St. Maarten. CC1 St. Maarten is one of the largest distributors on the island boasting a 21,000 square foot warehouse that is capable of delivering within 24 hours. The investment of the new warehouse was made to provide the island with the most complete line of premium products and services. As we enter the holiday season, CC1 St. Maarten will launch a new line of products such as Stella Artois, Hoegaarden and Leffe, the premium Belgium beers. We believe it is our customer service to provide products for each and every one,” said General Manager of CC1 St. Maarten Ada Iris Delgado.

The #1 beer of the Caribbean also recently launched the new fun size, 8.5oz Presidente Regular. “CC1 St. Maarten has proven themselves to be very successful with new innovative projects for our customers and consumers, such as the Carnival Coca-Cola limited edition 12oz can, and a success full 3-day Presidente Poker Run event. The annual Presidente Poker run was welcomed by many visitors, and participants from the USVI, Tortola and Puerto Rico. The event is a non-profit event, as CC1 St. Maarten is conscious of our environment, where they decided to work together with Nature Foundation,” continued Delgado.

One of CC1 St. Maarten innovations is the innovative Dasani® bottle design. The 100% recyclable half-liter bottle can be twisted down to half of its original size. That means it will bring an end to overflowing recycle bins and the beginning of a fun new way to remember to recycle empty bottles. Plant bottle® packaging is made from up to 30% plant-based material, which replaces some of the non-renewable petroleum or fossil-based resources used in conventional PET plastic.

The company is continuing to grow within its products, service, innovations and commitments to its customers.

CC1’s top priority is the “Customer first” philosophy, and is committed to provide premium products, excellent service and professionalism in everything they do through authenticity, innovation and leadership. They are always focused on their customers and consumers.

The company has carved a niche in the market with its line of best-in-class products, chief among which are Coca-Cola, Sprite, Fanta, Dasani, Canada Dry, Presidente, Corona Extra, Budweiser, Malta Morena, and others. “Our slogan says it all ‘Refreshing the island with the best.’ Our state-of-the art facility is located at Oryx Drive #1, Cay Hill,” Delgado concluded.
