French supermarket chain Casino has confirmed that some Coca-Cola products are no longer available at its outlets as a result of a disagreement over pricing.

In the past few days, Casino stores have placed notices above shelves where Coca-Cola drinks are normally found, informing consumers that the full range is not being stocked because “we (Casino) have not accepted the brand's price demands”.

The notices add: "We invite you to discover our own-label colas."

When contacted by just-drinks this week, a spokesperson for Casino played down the notion of a boycott of Coca-Cola drinks. “The brand's main products remain on sale,” the spokesperson said.

Earlier this year, Casino's discount chain Leader Price discontinued the sale of Coca-Cola's products in favour of PepsiCo's portfolio.

No-one was immediately available for comment at Coca Cola Entreprises French headquarters in Paris.

Earlier this year, The Coca-Cola Co launched Finley sparkling fruit drink in France.
