Objectives of Coca Cola Company
The Coca-Cola Company was originally established in 1891 as the J. S. Pemberton Medicine Company, a co-partnership between Dr. John Stith Pemberton and Ed Holland. The company was formed to sell three main products: Pemberton’s French Wine Cola (later known as Coca-Cola), Pemberton’s Indian Queen Hair Dye, and Pemberton’s Globe Flower Cough Syrup. In 1884, the company became a stock company and the name was changed to Pemberton Chemical Company. The new president was D. D. Doe while Ed Holland became the new Vice-President.
Pemberton stayed on as the superintendent. The company’s factory was located at No. 107, Marietta St. Three years later, the company was again changed to Pemberton Medicine Company, another co-partnership, this time between Pemberton, A. O. Murphy, E. H. Bloodworth, and J. C. Mayfield. Finally in October 1888, the company received a charter with an authorized capital of $50,000. The charter became official on January 1 5, 1889. By this time, the company had expanded its offerings to include Pemberton’s Orange and Lemon Elixir.

A number of lawsuits have been issued in relation to its allegedly monopolistic and discriminatory practices, some of which have been dismissed, some of which have caused The Coca-Cola Company to change its business practices, and some of which ave been settled out of court.

There have been continuing criticisms regarding the Coca-Cola Company’s relation to the Middle East and U. S. foreign policy.
