Sports drink Gatorade & Pepsico

This is the sports drink that Victoria Pendleton promotes for cyclists (clearly not Green cyclists):-

According to Wiki:

“Gatorade is a brand of flavored non-carbonated sports drinks manufactured by the Quaker Oats Company, now a division of PepsiCo. ”

Pepsico & Burma

“PepsiCo formally began their investment in Burma in November 1991 when they opened a bottling plant in the then-capital Rangoon, despite the call by Aung San Suu Kyi and the National League for Democracy for companies to avoid doing business in Burma until it returned to democracy. The campaign against Pepsi was initiated by the Asian-based Burma Rights Movement for Action. ”

Tney eventually left Burma in ’97 but never apologised unlike other companies.

Another drink for us Green cyclists to boycott then.


One response to “Sports drink Gatorade & Pepsico

  1. Thanks for that,I did not even know about Pepsi Co being involved in the Burma Regime and that they took over Quaker Oats.

    I certainly would not be Drinking Pepsi or that Gator Stuff .I tend to keep away from those Drinks but Quaker Oats Cereals I have eaten those Years ago so it is good to know so I can put it on the Banned list Together with Israeli Goods..
