Stagnant Coke profits

This article was originally published in Foodnews

A WEAK US dollar and a drop in consumer demand in many world markets has kept Coca-Cola Co's third quarter profits in check. Profits rose by 1% to US$1.32 billion (or US$0.81 per share) after revenue slumped to US$8.04 billion.
