Inventory Accounting Policy

Inventories consist primarily of raw materials and packaging (which includes ingredients and supplies) and finished goods (which include concentrates and syrups in Coca-Cola's concentrate operations and finished beverages in the finished product operations). Inventories are valued at the lower of cost or net realizable value. Coca-Cola determines cost on the basis of the average cost or first-in, first-out methods.
