COCA-COLA Beverage Sri Lanka clarifies facts pertaining To Its Operations,Following Some Erroneous Reports

Coca-Cola
Coca-Cola
Coca-Cola Beverages Sri
Lanka Ltd would
like to inform that there is no impediment in law, for the Company to continue
with its production, distribution, and sales. Over the past few days, there have been some
reports in the media, alluding to the suspension of the Company’s operations,
following a Court order.

We would also like to take this
opportunity to clarify that the case being referred to in the media reports,
was originally called in January 2011. A Public Health Inspector filed a
complaint in the Kebithigollewa Magistrate’s court regarding a
500ml Coca-Cola PET bottle, which allegedly did not have the date code printed
on it. Subsequent to the Magistrate’s conviction order, Coca-Cola Sri Lanka
filed an appeal in June 2012 in the Provincial High Court of Anuradhapura which
stayed the operation of the Magistrate’s order. During the pendency of the
appeal, the Magistrate Court issued its order of sentencing on the direction of
the High Court on 21st of November 2013. The Company forthwith lodged an
appeal on 22nd November 2013 against the said sentence as well which too
has been stayed by the High Court.

Therefore, currently there is no
impact on Coca-Cola Sri Lanka’s operations.
