Coke Sued Over VitaminWater Claims
The Washington-based Center for Science in the Public Interest accuses Coke of selling what it says is basically sugar water by claiming it has vitamins that boost immunity and reduce the risk of disease.
The group said the health benefit claims that Coca-Cola makes about its VitaminWater are "nonsense." It filed a class-action lawsuit in U.S. District Court in the Northern District of California.
Who own VitaminWater in the past?
The world's leading beverages company Coca-Cola had acquired it from Glaceau also known as Energy Brands Inc for $4.1 billion in year 2007. Our very own Tata Tea used to own 30-per cent stake in Glaceau.
