Pihak kami telah menerima maklumat bahawa terdapat individu dan kumpulan tertentu yang meminta orang ramai untuk memboikot Coca-Cola berikutan maklumat serta khabar angin yang tidak benar mengenai perniagaan kami yang disebarkan melalui media sosial di negara ini.

Kami ingin menegaskan bahawa walaupun Coca-Cola adalah sebuah jenama global, namun operasi pengeluaran dan penjualan adalah dilaksanakan oleh warga kerja yang terdiri dari golongan tempatan.

Justeru, golongan pertama yang akan terkesan dengan tindakan boikot ini adalah pekerja tempatan kami, diikuti ribuan peruncit, pengedar, pembekal dan mereka yang secara langsung mahupun tidak langsung berada di sepanjang rangkaian pengedaran kami yang bergantung kepada syarikat kami untuk keberlangsungan sumber pendapatan.

The Coca-Cola Company beroperasi di lebih 200 negara dan wilayah di seluruh negara dengan masing-masing mengamalkan sistem politik dan agama yang berbeza, begitu juga dengan sejarah mereka.

Matlamat kami adalah untuk memberi kesegaran kepada pengguna melalui produk kami. Kami tidak menyokong atau membangkang sebarang perkara berkaitan agama juga tidak memihak kepada negara tertentu. Di Malaysia, sejarah kami bermula sejak lebih 81 tahun lalu dan kami sentiasa akan terus memberikan komitmen yang kukuh selain menyumbang kepada kepentingan masyarakat.
