You spoke. Coca-Cola listened. Who's next?

[Business & Human Rights Resource Centre invited Associated British Foods (ABF) and PepsiCo to respond. Responses provided.] A month ago, Oxfam launched the second action of our Behind the Brands campaign asking three of the biggest companies in the sugar industry – Coca-Cola, PepsiCo and Associated British Foods – to commit to make sure their sugar doesn’t lead to land grabs...Coca-Cola [has] commit[ted] to “zero tolerance” for land grabs. Coke is the first of the ‘Big 3’ to agree to do more to respect communities’ land rights throughout their supply chain...Now that Coca-Cola, who sell over 20,000 drinks every second across the world, has committed to make sure the sugar in its products don’t lead to land grabs Pepsi and Associated British Foods have no excuses to keep lagging behind.
