Cola-Cola’s global network

The campaign to “buy the world a Coke” continues unabated, as evidenced by our interactive Muckety map of Coca Cola’s international ties.

In addition to a high-powered board of directors, Coke has a high-powered international advisory council.

The map above shows U.S. government and international connections of some of the board and advisory council members.


Chief among them, of course, is company Chairman and CEO Muhtar Kent, who is active in several groups focused on international relations and global trade.

Coke directors include Ernest Zedillo, former president of Mexico, and Donald McHenry, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.

Domestic sales accounted for just 19 percent of the company’s total cases shipped last year. After the U.S., countries with the largest consumption were Mexico, China, Brazil and Japan.

On Thursday, Coca-Cola opened its 43rd plnt in China.

Map tip: Roll over connecting lines to see relationships. We also suggest viewing the larger version, which gives you more room to expand relationships.
