Coca-Cola response to Guardian article
The Coca-Cola Company recognizes that our business is only as healthy and sustainable as the communities where we operate. Therefore, we contribute to sustainability through a number of community-based commitments and actions while also conducting our business in a responsible manner. Despite our efforts, old allegations continue to be repeated about our labor practices in Colombia. Here are the facts: The U.S. federal court has dismissed the lawsuits brought in the United States, with respect to both The Coca-Cola Company and the independent bottlers in Colombia. And two judicial investigations in Colombia found no evidence to support the allegations that bottler management conspired to intimidate or threaten trade unionists.
