In 2004, a Coke factory was closed
down in Kerala after being blamed
for reducing the quantity and
quality of water in the area.
Even though the main problem was
the lack of rainfall, Coca Cola
shouldn’t build plants in droughtsicken areas.
In Plachimada, Coke has shortened
the water supply and polluted
groundwater; here, the plant used
about 900,000 liters of water last
year
There is a big problem regarding
water polluting and using up
between India and Coca-Cola
India :s
India has come under intense
scrutiny, many communities are
suffering of water shortage aswell
of contaminated groundwater and
soil. Many of these are a result of
Coca-Cola’s bottiling operations
The state of kerala impose a ban of
colas from the state only to be
quashed by Coca-Cola
One of the biggest bottling facilities
has been closed for 17 months
becuase the village council has
refused to renes the license.
