business news in context, analysis with attitude

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that the Coca-Cola Co. is trying to shut down the market for the more expensive Mexican version of its flagship brand, which is made with real sugar rather than corn sweetener and which has developed a growing fan base among U.S. cola connoisseurs.

Making the job a little more difficult is the fact that some mainstream supermarkets – including Kroger in Houston, HEB’s Central Market in Fort Worth, and Safeway in Denver – sell the Mexican version, which is sourced from offer a national wholesaler, Gourmet Award Foods.

If you’d told us a decade ago that we’d be writing stories about shutting down drug supplies from Canada and Coke from Mexico, we suspect we would have had a very different vision of these topics.
