The Coca-Cola Company is a global business that operates on a local scale, in every community where we do business. We are able to create global reach with local focus because of the strength of the Coca-Cola system, which comprises our Company and our more than 250 bottling partners worldwide.

The Coca-Cola system is not a single entity from a legal or managerial perspective, and the Company does not own or control all of our bottling partners.

While many view our Company as simply "Coca-Cola", our system operates through multiple local channels. Our Company manufactures and sells Concentrates, Beverage bases and syrups to bottling operations, owns the brands and is responsible for consumer brand marketing initiatives. Our bottling partners manufacture, package, merchandise and distribute the final branded beverages to our customers and vending partners, who then sell our products to consumers.

All bottling partners work closely with customers - grocery stores, restaurants, convenience stores, movie theatres and amusement parks, among many others - to execute localised strategies developed in partnership with our Company.

Coca‑Cola in New Zealand

The Coca‑Cola Company has an indirectly owned subsidiary in New Zealand, Coca‑Cola Oceania, which provides marketing and technical support for the Company’s products in New Zealand and south Pacific Islands such as Fiji, Tonga, Samoa, New Caledonia and French Polynesia.  This involves a large range of activities from creating consumer promotional campaigns, to developing new market opportunities, to running the quality assurance programs for The Coca‑Cola Company under which the manufacturing plants are checked for their compliance with quality, environmental and other standards. Material and programs developed in New Zealand have been adapted and adopted by Coca‑Cola internationally, and Coca‑Cola Oceania recently and very proudly led the marketing of the Rugby World Cup sponsorship in 2011, creating programs that were used in many countries around the world.
