Coca-Cola India (CCI) has announced that it will support the National Games to be held in Hyderabad during December 13-22, in the form of both financial and material. A major material support would be the supply of water and soft drinks, for which the company is gearing up logistical back up. CCI was the sponsor of the Indian contingent in the recently-concluded Asian Games in Busan in South Korea.
This is one of the non-business activities of the CCI. The other areas of involvement include community projects in the areas of health and education and conservation and ecological protection, he told newspersons.
The company is working with the Naandi Foundation, promoted by corporates such as the Dr Reddy's Laboratory, Satyam computers and Nagarjuna Group in education. It has adopted two schools, one at Ameenpur and the other at Beeramguda, and offers merit scholarships to students in six schools around its Nellore bottling plant.
