Synopsis & More
Coca-Cola reaches more countries than there are in the United Nations, and it takes a power factory to provide a beverage with a famously secret formula consumed in over 99 percent of the populated world. Machines in a bottling plant pump out almost 800 bottles per minute, utilizing specialized air-veyor belts to maximize efficiency. Canned Cokes are filled at an astonishing rate of up to 1,700 cans per minute in a process more complex than meets the eye. And although Coke's famously patented glass bottles are rare in the US, we see how Coke still provides these contour bottles for the rest of the world nearly a century after their creation.
