Providing transparent nutrition information, featuring calories on the front of all of our consumer packaging, is a global policy for The Coca-Cola Company. As a leader in the area of front-of-pack nutrition labelling, Coca-Cola was the first beverage company to place front of pack nutrition labelling on nearly all of its packaging.
The Coca-Cola Company’s Policy on Nutrition Labelling is focused on providing consumers with factual, meaningful and understandable nutrition information that enables people to make informed beverage choices to meet individual nutritional and energy needs. It is based on the fact that all foods can be part of an active, healthy lifestyle that includes a sensible, balanced diet and regular physical activity.
Frequently Asked Questions about Front-of-Pack Labelling
What are Calories?
What’s the difference between kcal and kJ?
1 kcal = 4.2 kJ
Do different foods provide different amounts of calories?
1 g carbohydrate = 4 calories
Why do I need to learn about calories?
The key to weight management is learning to balance calories consumed with calories expended. To maintain a healthy weight, they need to be equal.
This often requires trade-offs—more physical activity to balance calories consumed, or more calories in when you are especially active, or fewer calories in if you are not expending as many as you are taking in.
Fortunately, there are no “good” or “bad” foods or beverages. It’s possible to fit all of your favourites into an active, healthy lifestyle through balance, variety and moderation—and being physically active. It’s not ‘what’ you consume, but the ‘how and how much’ in relationship to your nutritional needs and energy requirements.
