In August of this year Lancer became involved in a criminal investigation into allegations of fraud against Coca-Cola. The investigations sprang from an unfair dismissal case filed by former Coke employee Matthew Whitley. In the case Whitely accused Coke of improper accounting procedures concerning a fountain dispenser, iFountain, it was involved in with Lancer.

The dispute was settled in October.
