Today, Coca-Cola is unveiling Foodmarks, which celebrate newly-created global "food landmarks" inspired by culture, created with the real magic of Coca-Cola. Launching across the world, Foodmarks are destinations and experiences with a recipe of three key ingredients: the perfect moment, the perfect meal, and an ice-cold Coca-Cola.  To launch the campaign, Coca-Cola will debut five immersive experiences globally, each inspired by a captivating moment in culture.
