      A hippo snorted in the trickling Zambezi River; we moved closer together. I looked up into the starry night, breathed a contented sigh and dozed. The warm night was rudely disturbed by a large CRACK! We were both woken; another crash and I sat bolt upright.

      After a woman had screamed and I'd heard footsteps running, I began to make out a large frame moving slowly and soundlessly in the moonlight. The next morning, the smell or perhaps the sound of bacon frying woke me. As my eyes came into focus, I began to see what the commotion had been about last night. The sun was twinkling through a clump of Msasa trees and underneath them a very badly damaged boat. "Oh dear!" I exclaimed out loud.

      Whilst we ate our breakfast, several Africans approached the wreckage and issued loud exclamations, and drinking my tea I wandered over and chatted inquiringly with one of the gamekeepers. It turned out that an elephant had been responsible. The culprit was an individual with an infamous reputation and was named Mazoe (the local oranges are called and grown in a valley by that name). The owners of the vessel had hidden some oranges in their boat, not taking into account that an elephant was more likely to smell the fruit than see it.

      Our night's mystery solved, we decided to do some game viewing and, driving past the keeper's lodge, noticed a large sign: VISITORS ARE REMINDED NOT TO BRING ANY CITRUS INTO THE RESERVE. Under the circumstances, it was very prominent. We drove out following the course of the river; several species of bounding bush buck darted in front of the vehicle. We rounded a bend of anthills and, seeing a spectacular view of the Zambian hills, stopped.

      I jumped out of the Jeep to take a photograph; the ground underfoot was hot, and I was momentarily distracted as I watched the red soil disappear through my toes, and then out of the corner of my eye, I spotted an elephant. It was stretching very gracefully into a thorn tree and seemed to be saying, "Oh really, why are the tastiest morsels always so hard to reach?"

  • Product Quality

    • We measure key product and package quality attributes by focusing on ingredients and materials, and regulating manufacturing, bottling and distribution, of TheCoca-Cola Company products to ensure those products meet Company requirements and consumer expectations in the marketplace.

      As TheCoca-Cola Company expands our beverage portfolio and supplier base to meet the increasing demands of growing and developing markets around the world, customer and consumer expectations and regulatory scrutiny continue to rise. The global nature of our business requires that The Coca-Cola System has the highest standards and processes to ensure consistent quality—from our concentrate production to our bottling and product delivery.

      To ensure such consistency and reliability, The Coca-Cola System is governed by The Coca-Cola Operating Requirements (KORE) , a new management system which replaced The Coca-Cola Management System (TCCMS) in January 2010. KORE enables The Coca-Cola System to address the changing business landscape while supporting our Company's strategic growth plans by creating an integrated quality management programme which holds all of our operations, system wide, to the same standards for production and distribution of our beverages.

      KORE guarantees the highest standards in product safety and quality, occupational safety and health and environmental standards across the whole of The Coca-Cola System by outlining clear requirements for the policies, specifications and programmes that guide our operations. With endorsement from leadership throughout The Coca-Cola System, KORE integrates business and quality objectives and aligns them with consistent metrics to monitor performance; integrates preventive action as a management tool with more rigorous demands when introducing new products and services; incorporates Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) into our system standards; manages risk in our Company and bottling operations and across our supply chain; and defines problem-solving methods and tools to drive consistent quality with improvements.

      To stay current with new regulations, industry best practices and marketplace conditions, we consistently reassess the relevance of our requirements and guidelines not only in manufacturing, but throughout the entire supply chain.
