*For FULL PRODUCT LIST see [9] below
RESEARCH FINDINGS :
From 1966 onward Coca-Cola has been a stauch supporter of Israel.[4]

In 1997 the Government of Israel Economic Mission honored Coca-Cola
at the Israel Trade Award Dinner for its continued support of Israel
for the last 30 years and for refusing ro abide by the Arab League
boycott of Israel. [1]
[ In contrast Pepsi abided by the Arab League boycott of Israel
which ended in May 1991, after 1992 Pepsi is also trading in Israel
- see [2] ]
In 2001 the Coca-Cola World Headquarters hosted and was the main
sponser of the American-Israel Chamber of Commerce Awards Gala.[5].
It has ben revealed that Coca-Cola Israel sponsers training programs
for its workers on subjects including the Israeli-Arab conflict.
The course content is created by a company funded by the Jewish
Agency and the Israeli government.[6]
In February 2002, Coca-Cola teamed up with "Friends of Israel"
and National Hillel to cosponser a lecture given by the infamous
zionist correspondent Linda Gradstein at the University of Minnesota.[3]
In July 2002, it has been announced that Coca-Cola, in return for millions
in incentives from the Israeli government, is to build a new plant
on stolen Palestinian land at Kiryat Gat.[7]
In October 2005, Coca-Cola increased its investment in Israel by buying a
51 percent controlling interest in the Tavor Winery.[11]
ADDITIONAL INFO & REFs :

Coca-Cola honored by Israel in Atlanta The American Israel Chamber of Commerce and the Government of Israel Economic Mission honored Coca-Cola and chairman Roberto Goizueta at the Israel Trade Award Dinner in Atlanta on May 29. Goizueta has worked for Coca-Cola since 1954, transferring to the Atlanta headquarters in 1964. In 1980 he was elected president and chief operating officer. Coca-Cola has served the Israeli market for 30 years, refusing to abide by the Arab League economic boycott of Israel. For decades, this cost Coca-Cola the opportunity to sell its products in Arab countries.

Prior to 1992, Pepsi had backed the other horse, choosing
to service the lucrative Coke-less Arab markets in the boycott
days. For its decision to stay out of Israel (and thus itself
avoid being placed on the Arab League's blacklist), Pepsi
faced continued criticism in the United States. In certain
circles it was considered politically incorrect to be seen
drinking Pepsi.
The Anti-Defamation League of the B'nai B'rith investigated
claims that Pepsi was participating in the boycott of Israel.
U.S. law prohibited American companies from taking part in
this boycott, but the law was vague, and outright violations
were hard to pin down. Nothing ever came of the investigations,
and Pepsi was never placed on the American government's list
of violators.
[3]
On Tuesday February 19th 2002, Coca-Cola helped through a
partnership with the University of Minnesota, fund a pro-Israel
propaganda lecture given by Linda Gradstein. The event was
cosponsored by zionist organizations like Friends of Israel,
and National Hillel.

The Israeli government website (Ministry of Foreign Affairs)
in its timeline of key events in Israels history lists only
six events for the year 1966. One of the six acknowledges
Coca-Cola's support for the zionist state:
"Coca Cola announces its plans to open a plant to
produce Coca Cola in Israel, despite the Arab boycott"
[5]
http://www.rdu-yok-meg.org.il/HereAndNow/Newsletter/newsletter.htm
On October 11th 2001, Coca-Cola World Headquarters hosted
the American-Israel Chamber of Commerce Eagle Star Awards
Gala in which “Israeli Company of the Year”, “Israeli
Technology of the Year”, etc awards were given out by
Israel’s Economic Minister to North America. The Coca-Cola
Company was also the Platinum sponser of the whole event.
[6]
http://www.meitar.org.il/news/news.htm
Coca-Cola Israel is sponsering training programmes for its
workers from the immigrant communities, especially from the
former Soviet Union, who have not been brought up in the zionist
"culture" and who "often have difficulty integrating".
The subject matter of the program includes the Israeli-Arab
conflict. The workers attend weekly meetings where participants
have to read and analyze texts. The organisation running the
program, Meitar, is also funded by the Jewish Agency, and
the Israeli Ministries of Education and Absorption.

Coca Cola to build plant on stolen Palestinian land

Coca-Cola, in return for millions of dollars in tax breaks
from the Israeli government, is to build a new plant in Israel on land stolen from the Palestinians. The new plant will employ 700 israelis.
The land in question is Qiryat (Kiryat) Gat. Intel is already facing possible legal problems for building its chip plant on the same stolen land. The Kiryat Gat industrial park is built on the lands of the village of Iraq Al Manshiya whose residents were ethnically cleansed in 1949 in contravention of International law.
For full information please see::


Original story appeared in Ha'aretz(19-July-2002)

It has been reported on the internet that Coca-Cola has launched a grotesque advert in Israel depicting the Dome of the Rock with a Coke logo. For more information on this HOAX advert please see:

[10] What else does Coca-Cola get up to?
Apart of its support for Israel what else does Coca-Cola get up to?
1. Double Standards - Coca-Cola Toxic in India
A Coca-Cola can bought in India is not the same as one bought in the US or UK - in India it will contain over 30 times the EU limit for pesticides and include banned substances blamed for birth defects and cancer.
http://www.inminds.co.uk/boycott-news-0422.html
2. Coca-Cola accused of killing workers in Colombia
Trade unions around the world have launched a boycott of Coca-Cola products, alleging that the company's locally owned bottlers in Colombia used illegal paramilitary death squads to intimidate, threaten and kill its workers

Still want to drink Coke?

Coca-Cola increase investment in Israel
18 October 2005
Haaretz has reported that The Central Bottling Company (Coca-Cola Israel) has bought the 51 percent controlling interest in the Tavor Winery, furthering its ambition to have a holding in every sector of the beverages business. Central Bottling Company confirmed the report, which brings the soft drinks company smack into the heady realm of wine making, though refused to be drawn on the price paid.
For years the Central Bottling Company had been looking for a medium-sized or big winery to buy and turn into a subsidiary.
Tavor Winery an Israeli company is based on occupied Palestinian land at the foot of Mount Tavor, overlooking the Sea of Galilee.
