Purchasing Non-Alcoholic Beverages
Indiana University has an exclusive contract with the Coca Cola Company. This means that any event held on IU property, sponsored by IU, or associated with IU must serve Coca Cola products. This includes internal meetings, such as staff meetings or retreats.
This exclusive agreement is not limited to soft drinks. It also applies to bottled water, sports drinks, and other beverages. The Coca Cola Company offers a wide variety of products. You can explore their offerings on their brand website.
Whenever possible, order product from Coca Cola directly and take advantage of the contracted, discounted pricing available to IU.
