The review is not thought to affect the soft drinks company’s advertising agencies Vallance Carruthers Coleman Priest (VCCP), Lowe London and Mother. The account includes Coke Zero, Sprite, Diet Coke, Fanta and Minute Maid.

Vizeum won the planning business from Universal McCann after Coke’s last media review in 2000. Coca-Cola GB marketing director Cathryn Sleight is understood to have confirmed the UK review will take place later this year.
