It was just a few months ago that the public could purchase a 330ml Coke in a Can for a price, now the same can a little narrower and a little taller is on the shelves of every store pub and restaurant, yet only contains 300ml of Coke, at the same price of the not so old 330ml Coke can. How is it that they can get away with that so easily and no one complains and accepts it?
Now some say it’s because of the sugar tax imposed by the government, and some say it is because our living spaces are becoming smaller and Coca Cola made the new smaller size Coke’s smaller and longer so that they can fit better in your our little fridges or refrigerators. However if that was true why are we paying the sugar tax for Coca Cola by settling for 30ml less coke for the same price?
It does seem that Coca Cola refuses to lose the money they have to pay for the sugar tax, so they came up with this brilliant idea of letting the public pay, by reducing the size of the can (a saving for Coke) and then reducing the amount of coke in the can by 30ml. Therefore Coca Cola looses nothing in fact they still gain out of sales by selling us a smaller can of Coke for the same price as the 330ml a few months ago.
Once again the public is the loser and the mighty Coca Cola Company covers the governments sugar tax and in the process still manages to add a small profit.
Another question Googling this it seems that other countries have also changed to a longer narrower can but their content rangers from 320ml to 330ml as opposed to South Africa being only 300ml?
Why not add your comments or am I the only one to notice or have a problem with this, Coca Cola will be more than happy if no one comments and if no one does then you all deserve……………
