Bot­tler prom­ises no changes for its su­gar-cane Coca-Cola

The Washington Times Daily - - Business - From wire dis­patches and staff re­ports

NEW YORK | Fans of “Mex­i­can Coke” in the U.S. need not worry about los­ing the cane su­gar that sweet­ens their fa­vorite drink.

Amer­i­cans who buy the glass bot­tles of Coke ex­ported from Mex­ico may have been dis­mayed by re­cent online re­ports that an in­de­pen­dent bot­tler that sup­plies the drinks planned to switch from su­gar to fruc­tose to cut costs.

Arca Con­ti­nen­tal, the Mex­i­can bot­tler in ques­tion, stressed in a state­ment that it has no plans to change the sweet­ener for the “Coca-Cola Nos­tal­gia” bot­tles it ex­ports to the U.S.

Those will con­tinue to use 100 per­cent cane su­gar, it said.
