As part of our transparent reporting around our support of scientific research and health and well-being partnerships, The Company will also list health professionals, organisations and scientific experts with who we have collaborated and consulted. The Company provides funding to support their efforts to share scientific expertise, practical nutrition, physical activity, and lifestyle information with consumers and/or health professionals.

Coca-Cola Oceania has also worked with experts who are funded by Coca-Cola South Pacific. They are listed on the Australian website www.coca-colajourney.com.au

Coca-Cola Oceania has also worked with experts who are either from the U.S. or funded by the U.S. corporate headquarters. They are listed on the U.S. website http://transparency.coca-colacompany.com/health-professionals-and-scientific-experts. The funding provided for their work will be listed on the U.S. website.

The listing of an individual

  1. Does not imply that he/she currently has any relationship with The Coca-Cola Company; and 2. Implies no endorsement of The Coca-Cola Company or its products.

Our Approach to Funding Scientific Research:
For all the health and well-being research funding disclosed below, the researchers:

  • are expected to conduct research that is factual, transparent, and designed objectively;
  • are expected to generate an appropriately phrased hypothesis and to conduct research that will answer the relevant questions, rather than favour a particular outcome;
  • have full control of the study design, the execution, and the collection, analysis and interpretation of the data;
  • are encouraged to publish; and
  • are expected to disclose their funding sources in all publications and public presentations of the data.

In no event does Coca-Cola Oceania (CCO) have the right to prevent the publication of research results. Nor does CCO provide funding conditioned on the outcome of the research.

We have made a good-faith effort to disclose all the funding that meets the inclusion criteria. If we have unintentionally omitted something that meets those criteria, we will disclose it in one of our future updates, which we plan to provide every twelve months.

Items Included in and Excluded from the 2016 Disclosure

Research and Partnerships Included:

  1. Funding provided by CCO or The Coca-Cola Company’s U.S. corporate headquarters to entities based in New Zealand for research relating to dietary intake, nutrition, and health, or to physical activity; and
  2. Funding provided by CCO or The Coca-Cola Company’s U.S. corporate headquarters to entities based in New Zealand for health and well-being programmes and communications activities conducted in New Zealand.

Research and Partnerships Excluded:

  1. Research by entities not based in New Zealand and not funded by CCO or The Coca-Cola Company’s U.S. corporate headquarters;
  2. Programmes and activities conducted outside New Zealand and not funded by CCO or by The Coca-Cola Company’s U.S. corporate headquarters;
  3. Research on ingredients, packaging, products, or brands that is not related to dietary intake, nutrition, and health, or to physical activity;
  4. Research and development on new ingredients, packaging, products, or brands; and
  5. Payments to third-party service providers for media services, advertising, and logistics in support of the “Partnerships” for Health and Well-Being Programmes and Communications Activities listed.

Under our contracts with certain organisations, we are obligated to obtain the organisation’s permission to make disclosures like those above. We have made a good faith effort to obtain permission from these organisations but have not secured it from every organisation. The total amount of funding provided to these organisations during the reporting period is approximately $26,228.

For purposes of this list, we use the term ‘partnership’ in an informal sense, referring to our relationship with entities based in New Zealand that have received funding from CCO or The Coca-Cola Company’s U.S. corporate headquarters to support their health and well-being programmes and communications activities conducted in New Zealand from 2010 to 2016.

Timeframe: 1 January 2010 through 31 December 2016. Amounts for January 2017 and forward will be disclosed in a future update.

Currency: all amounts are disclosed in NZD excluding GST. Where amounts have been converted from other currencies to NZD this has been done using an average annual aggregated exchange rate for the year in which the payment was made.
