Coca Cola

It was 1886 when in New York Harbour workers were constructing the statue of Liberty. Eight hundred miles away, another great American symbol was about to be created - Coca-Cola.

Like many people who change history, the Atlanta pharmacist John Pemberton was inspired by simple curiosity. There are now just two countries in the world where Coca-Cola cannot be bought or sold, at least not officially. They are Cuba and North Korea, which are both under long-term US trade embargoes (Cuba since 1962 and North Korea since 1950).

There is a strong possibility that you would now like to hear the whole story of Coca-Cola and want to walk through the production halls to get a look behind the scenery. Coca-Cola offers us an English guided tour of about 2 hours, free for members, guests pay CHF 5.00. Register as soon as possible with Sonja by phone 044 302 45 47 because space is limited. Buy a return ticket to Dietlikon (NOT Dietikon) and meet Sonja in front of track 14 at main station. When you register, please leave your full name and phone number in a clear voice.  

Very important! Coca-Cola has very strict regulations for guided tours: No sick persons, nobody with cough, running nose, wounds or diarrhoea. All of us have to take off our watches and all pieces of jewellery.
