Coca-Cola forced to halt production in Venezuela over sugar shortage. Another company stopped making beer since they could not obtain barley
Coca-Cola is halting production of its namesake soft drink in Venezuela for the foreseeable future due to a shortage of sugar.

The US company says it is being forced to take the action because it has run out of the raw material.

Venezuela's economy is teetering on the edge of collapse with widespread food shortages and inflation forecast to surpass 700%.

Last month, Venezuela's largest food and drinks company, Empresas Polar, stopped production of beer because it was unable to obtain enough imported barley.

Re: Coca-Cola forced to halt production in Venezuela over sugar shortage. Another company stopped making beer since they could not obtain barley
I'm in the bev industry and we were selling container loads to Venezuela. They had lots of rules/regs for entry before all of this mess. Then, their .gov told them they couldn't take our product in the current form....so we produced it in a different form in a different packaging just so they could import it. This was all over a year ago. I think we stopped importing all together about 3 months ago due to volatility of ForEx and the companies not paying their bills.....

Oh NO not the POLAR! Worst beer I have ever had. Like a lot of 3rd world breweries they use formaldehyde, yuk.

Funny thing though is the POLAR Bear on the tiny can. Sitting out on the veranda and just tossing the empties at your feet you would soon be knee deep in aluminum cans.

The moral of the story is that when you travel other countries don't poison your soda with high fructose corn syrup, they use real sugar.

You have never tasted a coke so good as when you visit S. America, Asia, etc. It is what soda used to taste like when you were a kid.

In the future, Venezuela becomes the healthiest population with the longest-living people and the lowest tooth decay and mortality rates, and lower rates of environmental pollution from old plastic bottles. Because they banned coca cola and barley.

But without the barley, what will they drink to get drunk when they're sleeping on the bus stop bench?

When the venezuelans come across the border with a gut-full of drugpills in their distended stomachs, and the mothers have their anchor babies in the walmarts in texas, and they start the black hole of economics around, stealing and laundering, in other countries for the bottomless pit of bad government, then it will concern you. The point of a good economy is so that people never have to immigrate. Now it's a problem.

Tell you what. They can build a factory system and go work in Syria. Then the Syrians can go to Venezuela, and in between of everybody working off loans of travel, it looks like an economy. Which is ironic because I thought Venezuela had problems because of the war in Syria, the drug connections, but I don't know anything.

The difference here is notable esp how Capitalism automatically responds to the market forces of supply and demand ...

...a socialist society must regulate everything like toilet paper, grains and sugar.

Of course the disastrous results are always another persons fault ...to keep the flames of class warfare warm.
