The group's reported sales were up 5% in the six months to US$18.7bn. Second-quarter sales came in just shy of $10bn, a 6% year-on-year increase.

Coca-Cola grew organic sales in all of its reporting regions. Volumes were up or flat in all markets except for North America, where they dipped by 1%. Currency fluctuations meant reported sales in Latin America were flat, despite a 7% organic lift.

In Europe, Coca-Cola praised gains for Innocent Drinks, which is set for a launch in Asia this year.

CEO James Quincey
