They want clear ingredient information, and they’re seeking out more local products. They’re shopping local, and eating local. So we wanted to allow people to experience some unique local flavours no matter where they live in the United States.”Share with your network: Tags: The Coca-Cola CompanyUnited Stateslast_img
