20. Other Reserves

Accounting Policy
Other reserves include the cash flow hedge reserve, remeasurement of post-employment benefit obligations and the cumulative currency translation reserve.

The cash flow hedge reserve contains the effective part of the accumulated change in the fair value of cash flow hedges, net of tax, related to the foreign currency forwards and interest rate derivatives. See note 24 for more details on the Group's derivatives and hedge accounting. Transfer from the cash flow hedge reserve to the carrying value of inventory at initial recognition, is presented separately from consolidated Other Comprehensive Income.

Remeasurement of post-employment benefit obligations contains remeasurement of gains or losses related to both defined benefit obligations and fair value of plan assets arising from experience adjustments and changes in actuarial assumptions. See note 25 for more details on the Group's post-employment benefit obligations.

The cumulative currency translation reserve includes all exchange differences resulting from the translation of the financial statements of foreign entities.
