The Coca-Cola Hellenic Bottling Co has announced the amount of extraordinary social contribution tax it will pay in Greece.

The Greece-based soft drinks bottler said it will be charged EUR21.2m retrospectively on net income for the fiscal year ended 31 December 2009.

This amount will be accrued in Coca-Cola Hellenic's second quarter 2010.

The bottler saw its profits soar in the first quarter of the year, boosted by cost cutting measures and its restructuring in 2009.
