Managing Director of Coca-Cola Bangladesh Shadab Khan said, ‘Coca-Cola is a brand that has always stood for spreading happiness and togetherness. This initiative intends to add to those virtues by giving an opportunity for food lovers and all to spend a good time with family and friends while having their favourite foods and fun at one place. That food tastes better with Coke does not need to be retold. It is a fact that is reaffirmed by millions of people every single day in their choice to have a Coke with their meal. We have aligned with this event because we believe where there is food, there needs to be Coca-Cola. It’s what the people want!’
