Asia Pacific Council

Since its 2004 formation, the Coca-Cola Retailing Research Council Asia Pacific has become one of the region’s most significant industry research groups dedicated to in-depth investigation of grocery retailing issues. Retailer members come from across more than 40 countries of the region, from India to Indonesia to Australia, and work in all forms of retail, from convenience stores, drugstores, hypermarkets and e-commerce. The Asia Pacific Council works on behalf of the industry to commission and guide relevant industry research from independent third parties. Once completed, the Asia Pacific Council widely disseminates the findings to help retailers across their markets better understand the retail landscape and provide actionable business strategies.
