I don't believe it said. The US company was preparing to sue the South American arm to force it to control its distribution since Coke US was loosing market share in border towns. The article was in the WSJ or Fast Company, I think. They didn't mention anything about syrup....just the bootlegged bottles coming over the border.
I figured the parent company would be grateful about it...you know, learn a cheap lesson and give consumers what they want. Instead they threatened all sorts of legal action.
Gotta love corporate America...shove s--t down peoples throats and buy out the competition. BMC style...
