NZ Beverage Makers End Sales Of Sugary Drinks To Schools

December 10, 2009: 03:19 AM EST
Coca-Cola Amatil and Frucor Beverages have voluntarily stopped providing full sugar carbonated soft drinks and energy drinks to primary, intermediate and secondary schools in New Zealand. The action is the result of an agreement signed by the companies and a government health and education agency three years ago. Coca-Cola and Frucor will continue to supply schools with various sugar-free carbonated or low sugar soft drinks, fruit juices and flavored waters, according to this Infonews.com.nz article. A Frucor spokesman said the agreement shows that “governments and policy makers have alternative ways to regulation to achieve positive social and health outcomes.”
