Coke's Water Bomb

Loading...
"On a British sitcom, two characters bottled tap water and sold it as Peckham Spring Water. More recently, Coca-Cola launched its purified-water lifestyle drink, Dasani, in the U.K. The connection was not overlooked. This program tracks Dasani's progressive PR nightmare in Britain -- first as newspapers screamed "Coke Sells Tap Water for 95p," and then as Coca-Cola recalled 500,000 bottles due to potentially carcinogenic contamination at their factory. It also considers an even larger problem as worldwide Coke sales continue to flatten: without Dasani, the soft drink giant has no bottled water product for the lucrative European market." -- Container.
