Coca-Cola response

“Our Human Rights Policy and our Supplier Guiding Principles strictly prohibit the use of child labor in any of our, or our suppliers’, operations.  We know, however, that child labor cannot be eliminated by working only with our direct suppliers, and that the most effective solutions are designed to address root causes and support individuals and families who need to continue to earn a wage". “We are looking into this situation thoroughly and are bringing together the right set of stakeholders so that, collectively, we can identify and develop long-term, sustainable solutions.”
