...Coca-Cola is a carbonated soft drink sold in stores, restaurants, and vending machines in more than 200 countries.[1] It is produced by The Coca-Cola Company of Atlanta, Georgia, and is often referred to simply as Coke (a registered trademark of The Coca-Cola Company in the United States since March 27, 1944). Originally intended as a patent medicine when it was invented in the late 19th century by John Pemberton, Coca-Cola was bought out by businessman Asa Griggs Candler, whose marketing tactics led Coke to its dominance of the world soft-drink market throughout the 20th century. The company produces concentrate, which is then sold to licensed Coca-Cola bottlers throughout the world. The bottlers, who hold territorially exclusive contracts with the company, produce finished product in cans and bottles from the concentrate in combination with filtered water and sweeteners. The bottlers then sell, distribute and merchandise Coca-Cola to retail stores and vending machines. Such bottlers include Coca-Cola Enterprises, which is the largest single Coca-Cola bottler in North America and western Europe. The Coca-Cola Company also sells concentrate for soda fountains to major restaurants and food service distributors. The Coca-Cola Company has, on occasion, introduced other cola drinks under the Coke brand name. The most common of these is Diet Coke, with others including Caffeine-Free Coca-Cola, Diet Coke Caffeine-Free, Coca-Cola Cherry, Coca-Cola Zero, Coca-Cola Vanilla, and......

...person in the name of a greater good. Social Responsibility paper begins on next page………… Coca-Cola Company is a well-known respected company throughout the world. John Pemberton, a pharmacist in Atlanta, invented the drink that many have come to call “something special”. Driven by his curiosity, Pemberton, together with Jacob’s Pharmacy created Coca-Cola, in 1886, which in the first year alone sold 9 glasses a day. However, Pemberton was merely the inventor of Coca-Cola. It wasn’t until Atlanta businessman Griggs Candler bought the rights for the brand, and established “the first real vision of the business and the brand”.  Six scores and six years later, Coca-Cola Company’s missions remain simple, yet moving; “To refresh the world, to inspire moments of optimism and happiness, and to create value and make a difference”.

...Excelsior College Coca-Cola M5A2 Aleksander Laskowski BUS 435 International Business Prof. Irwin Nathanson 09 June, 2013 Introduction Coca-Cola was founded in 1886 and has just celebrated its 127th anniversary. The Atlanta based multinational corporation is an American icon, employing 71,000 employees in 200 different nations. The company is a perfect example of success in capitalizing on foreign growth, with over 70 percent of case volume being in foreign markets. To reach the iconic status, Coca-Cola has gone through multiple organizational changes in strategy and in structure. Roberto Goizueta changing strategy from localization to globalization, and its benefits In 1981 when Roberto Goizueta became the CEO of Coca-Cola, he decided to change the strategy of the company from one focused on localization to a more standardized, global one. The strategy was changed in order to save on costs, which are considerably higher when using a localization plan, compared to a globalization approach. When a product becomes standardized, its production becomes much cheaper, rather than a customized item under a localization strategy. By cutting the cost Coca-Cola could aggressively price their products in international markets to gain market share, and increase consumption which was at low levels of 10-15 percent compared to that of the U.S. (Hill, 2013). Yet another benefit of a globalization approach is the centralization of decision making, which allows the firm to see...

...duty is to mix Coca-Cola’s syrup (or concentrates) with carbonated water and sugar before selling it in glass or tin containers. These bottlers can be categorized in three groups taking into account their dependence from The Coca-Cola Company (hereafter simply referred as Coca-Cola). First, there are the independently owned bottlers, which accounted for 34% of Coca-Cola’s production in 1998. Second, 11% of Coca-Cola’s bottlers are owned and controlled. And then, there are those in which Coca-Cola has invested but still has no control (55% in 1998). Anchor Bottlers is the name given to some of these bottlers in which Coca-Cola has minority interests. They account for the majority of Coca-Cola’s sales (43%), justifying their special importance for the company. They tend to be large, geographically disperse and financially burly. There were 10 companies under this label, by 1999. This rooting of Coca-Cola’s business operations aims to make the most of its subsidiaries, by exploiting their efficiency in producing, delivering and marketing Coca-Cola’s products. Nonetheless, the level of control and ownership is carefully studied based on these bottlers’ financial health, resources available at the time of the investment, and the need to share ownerships with other important business allies. An example of an anchor bottler is Coca Cola Enterprises (hereafter referred as Enterprises). This corporation is responsible, today, for the production and distribution of Coca-Cola’s products...

...owns including intangible assets which are “assets that lack physical substance, but are valuable to the company". According to the annual report retrieved from (Coca-Cola Enterprises, 01/1) the total current assets of Coca-Cola Enterprises at the end of the financial reporting period of 2013 are $2,568.00 (In millions) Which depicts a decrease in current assets from 2012 whereas the report shows $2,762.00. At the end of 2013 Coca-Cola Enterprises reported $9,525.00 (in millions) of total assets, compared to $9,510.00 (in millions) at the end of 2012. The inclusion of intangible assets hinges on "the evidence of relation between the immaterial expenditure and the future profitability of the firm, including the realization of future benefits" (Brahim & Arab, 2011, pg. 73). After reviewing the most recent annual report, I believe that Coca-Cola Enterprises have had a positive year financially in which the total assets increased. In order to understand the company’s financial standing the balance sheet displays figures for cash and cash equivalents which are known as liquid assets. In other words this includes all property that can be quickly converted to cash if necessary.

...Coca – Cola’s history in brief: Coca-Cola is a carbonated soft drink sold in stores, restaurants, and vending machines in more than 200 countries. It is produced by The Coca-Cola Company of Atlanta, Georgia. Coca-Cola Enterprises, established in 1986, is a young company by the standards of the Coca-Cola system. Yet each of its franchises has a strong heritage in the traditions of Coca-Cola that is the foundation for this company. The Coca-Cola company traces it’s beginning to 1886, when an Atlanta pharmacist, Dr. John Pemberton, began to produce Coca-Cola syrup for sale in fountain drinks. However the bottling business began in 1899 when two Chattanooga businessmen, Benjamin F. Thomas and Joseph B. White head, secured the exclusive rights to bottle and sell Coca-Cola for most of the United States from The Coca-Cola Company. The Coca-Cola bottling system continued to operate as independent, local businesses until the early 1980s when bottling franchises began to consolidate. In 1986, The Coca-Cola Company merged some of its company-owned operations with two large ownership groups that were for sale, the John T.Lupton franchises and BCI Holding Corporation's bottling holdings, to form Coca-Cola Enterprises Inc. The Company offered its stock to the public on November 21, 1986, at a split-adjusted price of $5.50 a share. On an annual basis, total unit case sales were 880,000 in 1986. In December 1991, a merger between Coca-Cola Enterprises and the Johnston...

...Atlanta, Georgia, John Pemberton developed Coca-Cola, a non-alcoholic version of French Wine Coca. The first sales were at Jacob’s Pharmacy in Atlanta, Georgia, on May 8, 1886. It was first sold as a patent medicine for five cents a glass at soda fountains, which were popular in the United States at the time due to the belief that carbonated water was good for your health. Pemberton claimed Coca-Cola cured many diseases, including morphine addiction, headache, and impotence. When launched Coca-Cola’s two ingredients were cocaine and caffeine. The cocaine was derived from the coa leaf and the caffeine from kola nut, leading to the name Coca-Cola. Pemberton called for five ounces of coca leaf per gallon of syrup, a significant dose; in 1891, Candler claimed his formula contained only a tenth of this amount. Coca-Cola did once contain an estimated nine miiligrams of cocaine per glass, but in 1903 it was removed. After 1904, instead of using fresh leaves, Coca-Cola started using “spent” leaves –leftovers of the cocaine extraction process with cocaine trace elevels left over at a molecular level. Today, Coca-Cola uses as an ingredient a cocaine free extract prepared at a Stepan Company in Maywood, New Jersey. In the USA, Stepan Company is the only manufacturing plant authorized by the Federal Government toimprort and process the coca plant, which it obtains mainly from Peru, and Bolivia. Besides producing the coa flavoring for Cac-Cola, Stephan Company extracts cocaine......
