MANILA -- Coca-Cola Philippines said its original taste or regular variant would be available " as soon as possible" as it worked with regulators to address demand for refined sugar.
The company said it "prioritized" specific stock keeping units or SKUs to ensure "uninterrupted supply." It did not elaborate. The SKU refers to the different sizes of containers for Coke drinks.
"Rest assured that Coca-Cola Original Taste (i.e. Coke Regular) will be made available as soon as possible," Coca-Cola Philippines said in a statement.
"We thank our customers and consumers for their continued patronage of our products and for bearing with us," it said.
The softdrink maker said customers could still buy other beverages in its portfolio, including Coca-Cola Zero, Sprite, Royal, Sparkle, Sarsi, Wilkins Delight and Minute Maid.
