Chile's National Drink Bottlers Association (Anber) announced Thursday that sales of soft drinks, bottled water and juices dropped 0.2% during last year compared to 2000. Anber President Renato Ramirez said the drop in sales was because of the slowing Chilean economy. A 3.3% sales growth in the second quarter was later turned around by a 2.8% drop in the third, followed by another 0.8% sales decrease in the year's final quarter.  During 2000, drink sales grew 2.9%.
