Another strategy has been to make it a requirement for anyone applying for a post to leave the trade union. The company also changed its trade name to the "Industria Nacional de Refrescos S.A.", using this as a pretext for de-recognising the union since its name now included that of a non-existent company.: Nicaragua

2004 La Commission européenne a enquêté, de façon informelle, pendant cinq ans, sur d'éventuelles pratiques anticoncurrentielles de Coca-Cola dans cinq pays européens. La Commission le soupçonne d'inciter financièrement ses distributeurs à commercialiser ses produits sur des périodes plus longues que celles qui sont autorisées par la réglementation. Accord à l'amiable en octobre 2004. LCoca-Cola s'engage à ne plus offrir de remise aux clients qui achèteraient des produits comme le Sprite ou le Vanilla Coke en même temps que du Coca-Cola Classic ou du Fanta Orange; à ne plus proposer de remises récompensant ses clients pour "le seul fait d'avoir acheté autant ou davantage de produits Coca-Cola que dans le passé"; à renoncer à ses clauses d'exclusivité, laissant libres ses clients d'acheter et vendre des boissons gazeuses des fournisseurs de leur choix. Enfin, les clients de Coca-Cola pourront utiliser 20% des "meubles réfrigérés" fournis gratuitement par le groupe pour tout autre produit de leur choix s'ils n'ont pas d'autres installations pour boisson fraîche à présenter à leurs propres clients.     AFP
2004 Trois anciens cadres accuse Coca Cola d'avoir gonflé ses résultats en livrant des quantités excessives de concentré, en échange de crédits très avantageux, à ses embouteilleurs au Japon. Cette pratique, qui remonterait au milieu des années 1990, lui aurait permis de lisser ses résultats trimestriels pour qu'ils soient conformes aux attentes des analystes financiers.
