Voluntary Schools’ Accord


In 2006, we signed a voluntary agreement with Coca-Cola NZ to not supply full sugar carbonated drinks or energy drinks to any schools in New Zealand and to focus on the supply of healthy beverages.

This world first was acknowledged by the NZ Ministers of Health and Education in December 2006.

We’re really proud of this agreement, which, we estimate, has removed more than 50 kilos of sugar from every Kiwi kid who might otherwise have had one can of soft drink a day at school.

But we still think there’s more we could do, so in 2017, we are working to renew the accord to reflect consumers’ changing tastes and perceptions.
