1. How many countries sell Coca-Cola?

More than 200 countries. It's actually quite difficult to think of a country where it's not available. Even in countries where we do not manufacture Coca‑Cola, many entrepreneurs will import it from neighboring countries.

2. Do you market your drinks to children in India?

We have global standards which we follow in every country to ensure our brands are marketed responsibly and never to children under 12. In India and elsewhere, we offer low- and no-sugar options and a wide variety of pack sizes to help people choose the right drinks for them and their families. As a major food and drink manufacturer, we know there is more we can do to play our part in tackling obesity, so we continue to work to raise awareness and availability of the full choice of drinks we offer and provide consumers with the information they need to make informed choices about our drinks. 

3. Is the Coca-Cola formula kept secret because the company has something to hide?

Yes, but in a good way.

The formula for making Coca-Cola is a trade secret. We have protected the special taste of Coca-Cola for more than 130 years. Only The Coca-Cola Company knows how to make Coca-Cola. That way, when you buy one of our drinks, you can be sure you’re getting the same delicious and refreshing experience time and time again!

Did you know? The most closely guarded and best-kept secret in the food and drinks industry, the Coca-Cola formula is a complex blend of natural flavours. Although it has been frequently imitated, it has never been replicated.

4. Who knows the secret formula of Coca-Cola?

Only a few people in the world.

Dr. John S. Pemberton invented Coca-Cola in 1886. Since then, the formula has been kept under wraps, shared only with a small group.

Did you know? The secret formula of Coca-Cola is written on a piece of paper which is kept in a vault in the United States. You can visit of Coca-Cola the Vault of the Secret Formula at the World of Coca-Cola in Atlanta.

5. What position does India hold out of the 200 countries where Coca-Cola is sold?

India is the sixth largest market for Coca-Cola globally in volume terms. Ten years ago, it was No. 19. Our aim is to make India one of the biggest markets over the next decade. Our declared vision is for it to be among the top 5 by 2020.
