Coca Cola: A dirty brand

This is the first (and hopefully not last) entry concerning the behavior of big famous brands and companies.

Coca Cola Products of Coca Cola:
Aquarius, Bonaqua, Burn, Cappy, Coca-Cola, Fanta, Kinley, Krest, Lift Apfelschorle, Mezzo Mix, Minute Maid, Nestea, Powerade, Qoo, Römerquelle, Sprite,
Almdudler
(see comments: there are controversies ),

Why should you boycott this company?

  • They chase trade-union members with “death squadrons”
  • Child labor and exploitation in orange harvest
  • Racist discrimination

Where can I get more information about this company?

    There is a BIG mistake in this blog entry. Almdudler is NOT a product of the Coca-Cola company. So there is no reason to boycott Almdudler, since I’ve never heard any complaints about it. Almdudler is bottled only in Austria, Germany, Suiss, Belgium and Poland; I doubt heavily that there are any complaints about child labor in these countries.

    Yes, that is correct. Almdudler is not a product of the Coca-Cola-Company. Coca-Cola has only one licence to bottle it.

    I’ll try to contact the authors of the book and ask them if they have made an error or why they include almdudler…
