Due to new Government Legislation on food sanitation Coca Cola might have to give up its secret recipe to stay in the Taiwan Market and by the looks of this they would rather leave than do that. What a disaster that would be a coke dry island.
That would put a serious cramp on my existence. Its bad enough we don’t have Gatorade here because of greedy local pricks, now Coke!?! off and worry about your own DEHP laden bullshit before worrying about what comes from abroad. Has anyone ever gotten sick off of Coca Cola.
Good bloody riddance. People certainly have got sick from it: it’s mostly just water and sugar, so if you drink it regularly you’ll end up fat, diabetic, or both. Countries where people drink sugary drinks instead of water (eg., Mexico, USA, Philippines) are invariably full of fat, unhealthy people. Coke are also renowned for exploitative business practices, extracting massive concessions (like cheap or free water/land and exemption from pollution controls) from cash-strapped third-world governments on the basis that they’re going to ‘provide jobs’.

Yes and more, but they drank eight liters of it in a day and didn’t have the best lifestyle.
If they do not ask that of their fake milk drinks, fake tea drinks, and not even fake vitamins and… I can’t make such a long list of things, why do they take it against Coca cola?! I mean, of all international brands, they had to pick one of the most profitable, worldwide ones? If Coca cola leaves, what will that say about Taiwan’s image? Not even Cuba, por Dios…
Hey Song sarparilla is revolting and that stuff in the green coloured can im not sure if its supposed to be lemonade is even worse. I would miss the coke if they did decide to leave especially on long hot sticky summer days here.
[quote]For example, Costco’s Kirkland does not have to reveal the manufacturers of its products to the public, Chang said, noting that according to trade secret norms, the company cannot tell the public which manufacturers signed a contract with it.
Chang said however, if Costco has to “survive” in Taiwan, then it must follow the MHW’s regulation, “but I’ve been told that they said they could make it.” She further noted that not just Costco, Uni-President Group and Kuang-chuan Co. also face the same issue.
Coca Cola I can survive without, no Costco no cheese no lingerie…
