Coca-Cola http://www.kunc.org en Weather Puts A Damper On Coca-Cola Sales http://www.kunc.org/post/weather-puts-damper-coca-cola-sales Coca-Cola sales have slowed, in part because of the weather.

Sanctions were lifted last year on the country. Just this week, Coca-Cola opened its new bottling plant outside of Yangon. Now all the company has to do is figure out a way to sell all that Coke to people who may not remember what it tastes like.<p>The Myanmar people missed out on billions of dollars of worldwide advertising during those 60 years.
