Why does Coca‑Cola fund scientific research?

Rigorous scientific research is essential to support our innovation efforts, but also ensures we offer products that are safe and meet global regulatory requirements, and allows us to address questions of public health and consumer interest.

We agree that research transparency and integrity are important. That’s why in 2015 we committed to posting all our funding for well-being scientific research and partnerships, going back to 2010. This list can be found here.


Whether it is the research we fund independently or when we work in partnership, our company associates and others with whom we engage are required to adhere to the highest level of scientific integrity and to align with our research principles.
