Coca-Cola closes Russia juice subsidiary — report

The company ends operations at two plants in the Moscow region and the Siberian city of Novosibirsk, losing annual capacity of 560 million liters and about 1,000 workers.



MOSCOW, May 08. Coca-Cola will close Russian subsidiary Nidan Juices in June, Kommersant daily reported.

The company ends operations at two plants in the Moscow region and the Siberian city of Novosibirsk, losing annual capacity of 560 million liters and about 1,000 workers, the paper says, adding that Nidan’s flagship brand Moya Semiya will be handed over to another Coca-Cola juice company, Multon, while the fate of Da! and Caprice brands remained unresolved.

Nidan had already notified Novosibirsk region’s authorities of pending job cuts at the local facility, says the paper, quoting the region’s interim Vice-Governor Sergei Semka.

“All the region’s retailers were notified in the written form about Nidan’s closing,” said Holiday Classic retailer.

Industry data records Coca-Cola as having acquired Nidan for $276 million in 2010 when the company was the fourth-largest juice producer in Russia with a 13% market share.

But Coca-Cola had failed to sustain Nidan’s competitiveness, Russia's Union of Juice Producers is cited as saying, noting Nidan’s share slipping to 9% in 2011 and 6.9% the following year.

Coca-Cola is said to explain the wind-up of Nidan operations by a juice market contraction in Russia falling 5% last year.

“Since Nidan’s results came in below market average, the company decided to streamline its juice business on the basis of a more efficient Multon,” Coca-Cola’s spokesman Vladimir Kravtsov is quoted as saying.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
