Education is the essential link that enables people to select healthful diets and become more physically fit. We are committed to supporting educational programs designed to expand consumer knowledge and understanding about the benefits of a healthy lifestyle.

We have made great strides in expanding the level of nutritional information on our packaging, offering consumers factual and meaningful information about our beverage products to assist them in their beverage selections. Our policy is to place nutritional information on all of our labels, where feasible. Where this is not possible, for example on recyclable glass bottles, we provide nutritional information via other means such as Company websites.

We follow labeling requirements in the countries where our products are sold, and in many places, we exceed these requirements. The type and amount of information is a reflection of local regulations and consumer interest. At a minimum, our labels provide the beverage product’s amount of calories, protein, fat and carbohydrate.

The Coca-Cola company maintains a product facts website to provide nutrition information to consumers.

Global Nutrition Labeling Policy

In addition to basic nutrition information, our global policy on nutrition labeling and nutrition information also requires a statement of the amount of energy (per serving) as kilocalories, calories or kilojoules on the front of nearly all packages. Where permitted by applicable regulations, we provide percent Daily Guidance Indicators on our labels that place the quantities of energy and select nutrients, per serving, within the context of population-based dietary guidance. We expect to have this labeling in place across the Coca-Cola system for nearly all of our products by the end of 2011. Such labeling is already in place in Australia and Europe and is currently being implemented in Mexico, the United States and other countries.
