Coca-Cola bottler starts making 'Dobry Cola' in Russia

NEW YORK, Aug 26 (Reuters) - Coca Cola HBC AG has started making a local cola, Dobry Cola, in Russia after stopping production and sales of Coca-Cola Co products after Western companies left the country en masse earlier this year.

Dobry has been a juice brand in Russia but Coca-Cola HBC, which is independent of the Coca-Cola Co, said earlier this month it was exploring extending existing local brands.

'Dobry Cola' has no connection with Coca-Cola or the Coca-Cola Co, Coca-Cola HBC said in a statement.

The Coca-Cola Co has a 23% stake in Coca-Cola HBC.

The Interfax news agency on Friday quoted the founder of Russian fast-food chain Teremok as saying he had received notification from the company about 'Dobry Cola,' and was trying to sell it in his restaurants.
