Dear Coca-Cola Consumer,

All our products in India are safe, and meet all Indian as well as international standards.

PRODUCT TESTS ARE APPROVED BY RECOGNISED LABORATORIES

Tests are conducted regularly at an independent national and international laboratories such as VIMTA (Hyderabad) for Product Water / Sugar Syrup/ Packaged Drinking Water, MWH Laboratories (California, USA) for Packaged Drinking Water and CSL, a world-leading UK government laboratory in London for finished beverages. These are amongst the few laboratories in the world which have the required ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation for pesticide residues testing. The tests conducted reveal that our products meet with all Indian and international applicable standards including those being considered by the regulators in India.

STRINGENT QUALITY STANDARDS

Soft drinks are primarily made up of sugar, water, flavours and flavourings.

WATER [complies with stringent BIS specifications]

Water used in the manufacture of all Coca-Cola products undergo a rigorous multiple barrier filtration process to eliminate pesticide residues, other organic and inorganic impurities that are normally present in water. This process is endorsed by the World Heath Organization (WHO) and ensures that the water used (1) meets the specifications prescribed by the PFA, and (2) meets the BIS standard for Packaged Drinking Water viz., IS 14543:2004. The BIS standard for pesticide residues is similar to the world's most stringent standards, viz., that of the European Union.

SUGAR [processed to make it Safe]

The sugar used in all Coca-Cola products is obtained from sugar mills specially selected after meticulous screening. At Coca-Cola in India, the sugar is put through a specially developed 'Hot Carbon Treatment process' which ensures that the sugar syrup is safe in all aspects.

FLAVOURS AND FLAVOURINGS (governed by PFA and FEMA safety specifications)

The flavours used in our products meet all safety specifications as required by FEMA (Flavour and Extract Manufacturers Association). All food additives in the flavours and flavourings have been approved for use by the Central Committee for Food Standards (CCFS) of the Government of India, and are based on standards recommended by the Joint FAO / WHO Expert Committee.
