COKE
  


Letter To Board of Directors sent, now for Coca-Cola Enterprises

The letter below has been sent to the Coke Board of Directors. While they mull over the growing boycott we need to introduce ourselves to the bottling company. This is actually a separate company and our boycott affects them just as much. A sample letter will be posted later this week.

The Coca-Cola Company Should Get Out  of Politics Petition

Keep spreading the word, we think that CCE should know why their business is declining, not growing! We are sure that their stockholders will be interested.

Some information on Coca-Cola Enterprises

What is the difference between Coca-Cola Enterprises and The Coca-Cola Company?

Coca-Cola Enterprises is the world's largest marketer, producer, and distributor of products of The Coca-Cola Company. We also distribute Dr Pepper and several other beverage brands in selected territories. We are an independent, public company traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the stock symbol CCE. The Coca-Cola Company develops products, produces the marketing and advertising programs to support those products, and sells syrup concentrate to Coca-Cola Enterprises and other bottlers. As a bottler, we combine the product concentrate with other ingredients to manufacture and package our beverages. Coca-Cola Enterprises then uses its extensive sales and delivery force to market and distribute products to retail customers and consumers.
