Coca-Cola Japan May Import Water from South Korea
March 28, 2011
Coca-Cola Japan Co. is considering importing mineral water from South Korea to meet demand in Japan’s Tohoku and Tokyo regions. The company initially plans to secure 1 million cases of water for the affected areas, according to a faxed statement today, reports the Associated Press. The Japanese government last week called on mineral water suppliers to increase supply after tap water in the Tokyo area was at one point found to have radioactive iodine levels higher than the recommended limit for infants.
