Hyderabad: A photo of Coca-Cola bottles with labels 'Kisan Ekta' and 'Support Farmers' in support of the ongoing farmers' protest has gone viral on social media. They are shared with the claim that Coca-Cola has released these bottles in support of the farmers' protest.



Fact Check:

The claim that Coca-Cola has launched 'Support Farmers' coke bottles is FALSE.

There have been no such news reports on the Coca-Cola website or any other news websites.

NewsMeter also did not find any other photos of coke bottles with the labels supporting the farmers' movement.

Coca-Cola had launched 'share a coke' campaign in India in 2018. Its bottles had labels like "Grandad (Old School. Yet Cool), Grandma (Scolds me. Spoils me), Daddy (My teacher. My friend)". But the company has not released any campaign to support the farmers. Coca-Cola has also refuted these claims.

Also, Boomlive and The Quint have debunked this claim.

Therefore, the claim that Coca-Cola has released bottles with labels that read 'Support Farmers' is FALSE.
