Coca-Cola NZ directly sells only bottled water to primary and intermediate schools and does not directly sell sugar-sweetened beverages to secondary schools.

This is part of an industry-wide commitment from the NZ Beverage Council which represents the manufacturers, suppliers and distributors of New Zealand’s juice, carbonated drink and bottled water brands.

The water-only policy builds on an earlier Voluntary Schools Agreement between Coca-Cola Amatil NZ, Frucor and the Ministries of Education and Health, signed in 2006, to not directly sell full sugar carbonated beverages and energy drinks to any New Zealand school.

We also endorse and commit to the government’s Healthy Kids Industry Pledge and continue to seek ways to support and healthy beverage consumption.
