End of supply contract

This article was originally published in Foodnews

COTT Corporation, the private label soft drinks manufacturer, has announced the phase-out of its exclusive supply agreement with Wal-Mart in the US. Wal-Mart has informed Cott of its decision "to terminate, without cause" the 10-year agreement, the drinks maker said in a statement. The impact on Cott's business is unclear at this point. The termination is effective three years from Wal-Mart's notice, in late January 2012. This move allows Wal-Mart the opportunity to move as much as one-third of its requirements in the first year following its notice, and two-thirds in the second year.
