We are gratified the High Court of Kerala has set aside the illegal orders of the Government of Kerala and the State Food (Health) Authority dated Aug. 10 and 11, 2006, respectively, banning the manufacture and sale of Coca-Cola in the State.

This order protects the interests of big and small retailers, local entrepreneurs and employees which have been affected by this illegal ban. In response to the interests of consumers in Kerala, we will immediately take necessary steps to make Coca-Cola available across the State of Kerala.

Coca-Cola India has always been completely confident of the safety of its soft drinks in India because they are produced to the same level of purity, regarding pesticides, as the EU criteria for bottled water (globally accepted as some of the most stringent in the world).
