Following the publication of detailed claims that their sugar supply chains were linked to land-related human rights issues, Coca-Cola and PepsiCo committed to showing zero tolerance for land grabs. As of early 2016, both companies have taken an important step by assessing the risks and impacts of their cane sugar sourcing on land rights in Brazil: Coca-Cola by conducting a baseline study, PepsiCo through audits.
This report provides an independent evaluation of the land issues discussed in the third party baseline study and audits contracted respectively by The Coca-Cola Company (TCCC) and PepsiCo in 2014, and was commissioned by Oxfam for its 'Behind the Brands' campaign.
