Great use of the precious clean water in Iraq - mix it with sugar and artificial flavorings and sell it back to the children] Meanwhile: (3) US: PepsiCo announces increase in concentrate prices 12 Jan 2004 Source: just-drinks.com editorial team http://tinyurl.com/3ajsc PepsiCo Inc. has announced a price rise for its carbonated soft-drink concentrates. Starting on 1 February, Pepsi's concentrates will rise by 0.5% pg _______________________________________ Sent via the CASI-analysis mailing list To unsubscribe, visit http://lists.casi.org.uk/mailman/listinfo/casi-analysis All postings are archived on CASI's website at http://www.casi.org.uk
