The company owed US$10 million in debt to the Coca Cola Company for unpaid deliveries of key raw materials.
The Independent reports that Schweppes secured a steady shipment of raw materials from Turkey. The publication cites its source as saying:
As Schweppes, we are pleased to announce that following negotiation with suppliers in Turkey, we will be receiving shipments of concentrates which are a key ingredient in the production of Mazoe Orange Crush. The product will be back on the market within the next month.
The company is reported to be engaging local citrus farmers to ensure a guaranteed production and supply of oranges, which constitute the key raw material of Mazoe Orange Crush.
Mazoe Orange Crush is exported to several regional countries, among them are Namibia, Zambia, South Africa and Botswana.
Schweppes had replaced Mazoe Orange Crush with Mazoe Mango Crush on shop shelves.
