Preguntas para el Caso Coca Cola:
1. En tu opinión, ¿cuál ha sido el ámbito geográfico del problema: Bélgica, Europa o el Mundo?
En la era de las comunicaciones, el acceso a las comunicaciones ha aumentado exponencialmente haciendo de cualquier problema local un problema global. Así que, aunque el problema ha afectado directamente a Bélgica y de “rebote” rápidamente a países colindantes incluso a Europa, el alcance resulta mundial. Afecta directamente a los países donde se distribuyen productos fabricados en Bélgica, como Francia. Además Coca-Cola es una marca global, incrementando de mayor manera su repercusión; tal y como dice el caso es la segunda palabra más conocida a nivel mundial después de OK.
2. ¿Cuál es el problema y cómo lo gestionarías? Haz una propuesta de plan de acción.

• El problema de la intoxicación se concatena a otro previo, el de la gripe aviar que no fue mucho más tarde del de las vacas locas, llevando a la sociedad a una histeria colectiva y agravando aún más el problema.
• Intentan evadir el problema en vez de afrontarlo buscando culpables, buscando excusas.
• Cadena de errores, se encuentran productos retirados de la venta en otros países.
• Falta de liderazgo, de humildad y de responsabilidad.
• Falta de identificación previa de procesos críticos o posibles de ser los causantes de un caso de esta incumbencia.
• Tiempo de respuesta inaceptable para una marca como Coca-Cola, esto daña la imagen de marca, reputación y su credibilidad ante la opinión pública en la era de las comunicaciones. Una decisión a corto plazo puede afectar a una empresa a largo plazo.
• No cumplir con las expectativas del consumidor es mucho más costoso que mantener su satisfacción cumpliendo sus expectativas y manteniendo su percepción. (operations I)

Coca Cola in Belgium

...1) How could the Belgium problem have damaged Coca Cola? Coca-Cola had been creating a really strong and successful image, and people had great sympathy for the brand. But because of the Belgian scandal, the credibility of the umbrella brand was being doubted. First of all, customers (mainly from Belgium and France at the beginning) were scared of drinking Coca-Cola products. For example, parents did not want their kids to get contaminated. More so, the brand was not giving a specific reason for these incidents, and by not reacting soon enough the quality of their products was at stake. Because of that, the Belgian government imposed strict hygienic conditions to recover the right to sell their products again. Therefore, the rest of European countries had an "excuse" to distrust the brand, even if the Belgian authorities reacted a bit extremely due to the former chicken crisis. Suppliers and distributors around Europe were also impacted. Coca-Cola, as a global brand, had had to trust its bottlers to follow the quality values the company held, but this scandal challenged the current control of Coca-Cola over its supplier's plants. But these suppliers also were scared of the consequences of their relationship with Coca-Cola in this crisis. Coca-Cola also suffered a financial impact because of this crisis. The withdrawal of their products had a negative impact on the second quarter net income of the year 1999, with a decrease of 21%. Not only that, but the cost of the entire...

...duty is to mix Coca-Cola’s syrup (or concentrates) with carbonated water and sugar before selling it in glass or tin containers. These bottlers can be categorized in three groups taking into account their dependence from The Coca-Cola Company (hereafter simply referred as Coca-Cola). First, there are the independently owned bottlers, which accounted for 34% of Coca-Cola’s production in 1998. Second, 11% of Coca-Cola’s bottlers are owned and controlled. And then, there are those in which Coca-Cola has invested but still has no control (55% in 1998). Anchor Bottlers is the name given to some of these bottlers in which Coca-Cola has minority interests. They account for the majority of Coca-Cola’s sales (43%), justifying their special importance for the company. They tend to be large, geographically disperse and financially burly. There were 10 companies under this label, by 1999. This rooting of Coca-Cola’s business operations aims to make the most of its subsidiaries, by exploiting their efficiency in producing, delivering and marketing Coca-Cola’s products. Nonetheless, the level of control and ownership is carefully studied based on these bottlers’ financial health, resources available at the time of the investment, and the need to share ownerships with other important business allies. An example of an anchor bottler is Coca Cola Enterprises (hereafter referred as Enterprises). This corporation is responsible, today, for the production and distribution of Coca-Cola’s products...

Coca Cola

However, when a crisis as big as the one that hit Coca Cola in Belgium in 1999 takes a company by surprise, no matter how big it is, no crisis management team can be prepared for a problem of this magnitude.

...Running head: THE COCA-COLA COMPANY The Coca-Cola Company 1 Running head: THE COCA-COLA COMPANY 2 The Coca-Cola Company: History and Strategy The Coca-Cola Company is one of the oldest and largest beverage companies in the world. Its success has primarily been due to its ability to evolve along with consumer demands and markets. Through its failures and successes, Coke has become one of the most successful and most recognized brands in the world. History of Soft Drinks Relative to the history of the world, soft drinks are relatively new and have become one of the largest industries in the world. The term “soft drink” refers virtually to any drink that is not hard liquor and people of desire to drink natural carbonated water since the time of the Romans. Carbonated water had always been related to health through mineral baths and thus created the notion that if it was good to soak in it, then it must be better to drink it. By the end of the 1700s, scientists had discovered how to take carbon dioxide, infuse it into plain water, and create bottled carbonated water. It did not take long before people desired this health drink to be flavored and in the late 1700s citric acid was added from lemon juice that open the gate for the creation of carbonated lemonade in England. By the mid and late 1800s, popular soft drinks such as ginger ale and root beer were sold on the market as health elixirs much like today’s sports drinks. A pharmacist named......

...The ethical issues and dilemmas that Coca Cola faced were actually very surprising since I have been drinking the product for years. Allegations of Intimidation, Racial Discrimination Financial Misconduct, and Environmental issues have hovered beyond the walls of the Conglomerate with very little room to disappear. I was extremely surprised about the Financial Misconduct but having interviewed for them and being denied due to credit issues I assume I can understand. Seems to me that the management within the organization was not up on ethical standards within an organization because, it could have been taught to many of the staff workers worldwide. The Columbian Union situation with you Union was very frightening yet a red flag in my book. In 2001, SINALTRAINAL, a Colombian labor union, charged that Coca-Cola and its bottlers Panamerican Beverages (Panamaco), Bebidas y Alimentos De Uraba, and Coca-Cola Femsa, were linked to the violence against its union members in Colombia. Around eight union leaders of Coca-Cola's plants in Colombia had been murdered since 1989, and many others had been abducted and tortured. Coca-Cola was accused of hiring paramilitary death squads to kidnap, torture, or kill union leaders and intimidate worker union activists at its bottling plants. (Management Paradise, 2009) Another that was amazing and seemed as if Management was unaware of how to handle was when hundreds of Belgians—including school children—complained of nausea and vomiting......

This may rise from direct experience with organization or through some other medium like news channels or talk with friends. Harrison ( n d) states that Stakeholders’ outlook for a company and their associations and interactions with the per se organization and thus the reputation may be impacted by relationship management actions some of which are outlined below pertaining to the Coca Cola case Customers: Direct Impact: Many consumers got ill effects related to health while consuming the product in 1999 in Luxemburg and Netherlands. The coke further took a step back and did not want to come in limelight to discuss the issue openly. The response time was too high for consumers to accept. France was also affected similarly. The contaminated products were also shipped to Poland. This direct impact which reduced reputation of Coca Cola in these countries also brought the sale down. Employees: The African American employees felt that the organization shows bias during performance assessments and related pay rises and promotions in 1995. They filed a case against the company too. Way back they did some eye dressing to avoid this but were not successful in America. The issue of death of eight employees in 2001-2004 in Colombia and the organization reactive attitude to escape from the whole issue shows its reputation in the eyes of its......
