COCA-COLA NESTLE REFRESHMENTS LAUNCHES READY-TO-DRINK NESTEA(R) ICED TEA IN KOREA

 TAMPA, Fla., March 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Coca-Cola Nestle Refreshments Company (CCNR) today announced the launch of ready-to-drink Nestea Iced Tea in Korea.
 Ready-to-drink Nestea, sweetened and with lemon flavor, will be available initially in 250-ml cans.
 The product will be produced and distributed by the four Coca-Cola Bottlers in Korea: Doosan Beverages, Woosung Foods, Honam Foods and Bumyang Foods. The Coca-Cola Bottlers will distribute Nestea through all their distribution channels in Korea.
 "We are excited to introduce our ready-to-drink Nestea Iced Tea into yet another country, Korea. We believe that Nestea is one of the most unique beverages to be launched in Korea in recent years and are confident that it will have a major impact there," said CCNR President and Chief Executive Officer, Harry E. Teasley Jr.
 Korea marks the fourth country launched for ready-to-drink Nestea Iced Tea. In January 1992, Nestea was first introduced in the United States; followed by launches in Taiwan in April 1992 and Italy in May 1992.
 Korea was the site for Coca-Cola Nestle Refreshments Company's first product launch, Nescafe(R) ready-to-drink coffee in September 1991. Nescafe has become the second largest selling branded ready-to-drink coffee in the marketplace with over a 29 market share.
 Coca-Cola Nestle Refreshments Company, a joint venture between The Coca-Cola Company, Atlanta, Ga., USA and Nestle, S.A., Vevey, Switzerland, was formed in March 1991 to produce and market ready-to- drink coffee, tea and chocolate beverages worldwide, except for Japan, where both The Coca-Cola Company and Nestle have successful ready-to- drink coffee beverages. The joint venture combines the strengths of Coca-Cola's worldwide distribution system and the global equity of Nestle's trademarks and Nestle's technology.
