A staple in the diet of many Mexicans could be in short supply in Chilpancingo, Guerrero, as deliveries of Coca-Cola have been suspended for security reasons.
The company has been a target for the protest movement that has grown since the disappearance of 43 students of the Ayotzinapa teacher training college — trucks have been detained and looted, and just last week a manager and his assistant were taken hostage and held captive for several hours.
Two employees at the company’s Chilpancingo warehouse told a reporter that there will be no deliveries in the municipality of more than 200,000 people at least until Wednesday, when the company will decide whether conditions are favorable to resume operations.
Coca-Cola has 55 delivery routes in the area. The owner of an abarrotes store on one of them, in the center of the city, is concerned because 70% of his income comes from Coca-Cola products.
He said he will turn off his cooler if there isn’t a delivery on Wednesday because it isn’t worth his while keeping his remaining stock of soft drinks and water cold at a cost of 100 pesos a day.
Mexico has the distinction of holding the world title for the highest consumption of Coca-Cola products per capita.
