Why Coca Cola’s plastic water bottle Dasani failed in Europe.
Excerpts from Wikipedia:
“…the source of the Dasani brand water was in fact treated tap water from Sidcup, a suburban development in London. By early March 2004, the mainstream press had picked up on the story and it became widely reported that Sidcup tap water was being treated, bottled and sold under the Dasani brand name in the UK. Although Coca-Cola never implied that the water was being sourced from a spring or other natural source, they marketed it as being especially “pure”…
…The media made mocking parallels with an episode of the well-known BBC sitcom Only Fools and Horses, in which protagonist Del Boy attempts to pass off local tap water as bottled “Peckham Spring”. …
…UK authorities found a concentration of bromate, a suspected human carcinogen, in the product that could be considered harmful if consumed in large quantities. Coca-Cola immediately recalled half a million bottles and pulled the “Dasani” brand from the UK market. Shortly after, plans to introduce the brand to Continental Europe were announced to have been cancelled as well. Bromate was not present in the water before Coca-Cola’s treatment process. During that process the bromate was produced from the water’s bromide.
