VENEZUELA: Coca-Cola Stops Production Due To Shortages

Coca-Cola has announced that it is freezing production in the country, after struggling with escalating supply shortages.

In a statement, the group said its local suppliers will “temporarily cease operations due to a lack of raw materials”. However, it clarified that it will continue producing sugarless drinks such as Coca-Cola Light (Diet Coke).

The announcement underlines the severe problems facing Venezuela, which has become the scene of major food shortages and growing public unrest.
