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 The Coca-Cola Company have the right to prevent the publication of research results. Nor does The Coca-Cola Company provide funding conditioned on the outcome of the research.
