Wellbeing

We support and promote active, healthy lifestyles, providing the choice and information consumers need to make the right decisions for them.

As a major beverage manufacturing company, with brands and products loved by many, we are committed to making a distinct and positive contribution to the wellbeing of our consumers.

  • We are proud to be a leading beverages company, a major employer and a part of consumers’ everyday lives in the six countries in which we operate.
  • We believe our products can be enjoyed as part of a balanced, healthy lifestyle which includes a sensible diet, proper hydration and regular physical activity.
  • We know choice and information are fundamental for consumers to be able to make the right decisions for them and their families and we are committed to providing both.

We recognise that obesity is a very real issue in many countries across the world, including Australia and New Zealand. As a leader within the beverages industry, we take our responsibility to play our part in helping to address this challenge very seriously.

Soft drinks are often front and centre of the conversation around obesity, but just 1.9 per cent of the average daily intake of kilojoules for Australians comes from soft drinks and flavoured mineral waters. In New Zealand just 1.5 per cent of the average daily intake of kilojoules comes from soft drinks. Soft drink consumption has declined in the period that obesity has increased.

We believe our industry has a role to play in promoting the energy balance message and helping consumers make the right choices. This is why we are constantly challenging ourselves to ensure we offer choice when it comes to the range of portion sizes and kilojoule options. We also know people need clear information so they can make the right choice for them and we are committed to ensuring this is available wherever our products are sold.

We have four clear priorities when it comes to playing our role in helping to address these health challenges, and are proud of the progress we are making against each of these. Since 2013:
