The Coca-Cola Company Sweetener Challenge
We would like to bring your attention to The Coca-Cola Company Sweetener Challenge that HeroX is promoting, on behalf of The Coca-Cola Company, at HeroX and that offers a $1,000,000 prize!

The goal of the challenge is to find a natural, safe, reduced or no-calorie alternative to sucrose. The Coca-Cola Company Sweetener Story Challenge is an invitation to share research on natural sweetener molecules that could result in new beverages with the sweet sensation of sugar and that fit with consumer’s tastes and lifestyles.

Further details of the challenge are provided at this link.

We hope you will consider contributing to The Coca-Cola Sweetener Challenge and being part of an exciting initiative to innovate in the science of sweetness!
