Created four decades ago by a top Coca-Cola executive, the institute now has branches in 17 countries. It is almost entirely funded by Goliaths of the agribusiness, food, and pharmaceutical industries. … The organization rejects allegations that it works to advance the interests of its corporate members…” (Jacobs, 9/16).
