-- School contract compliance has surpassed the benchmark goal. In the second year of implementation, 79 percent of all contracts between bottlers and schools or school districts have achieved compliance with the guidelines, which surpasses the benchmark goal of reaching 75 percent by 2008. With more than three-quarters of contracts in compliance, the industry is fully on track for the three-year implementation plan.

-- The school beverage landscape continues to change. The beverage mix in schools continues to change, shifting to more waters, portion-controlled sports drinks and diet drinks. In fact, shipments of full-calorie soft drinks have decreased by nearly two-thirds with the volume shipped to schools down by 65 percent, showing industry is well on track for meeting that component of the commitment.
