The BBC reports that the Coco-Cola beverage is the latest addition to a long list of food products in short supply in the country.

Coke, in a statement said that suppliers in Venezuela will "temporarily cease operations due to a lack of raw materials".
 

Empresas Polar, Venezuela’s biggest brewer has also been forced to close its plants due to an acute barley shortage.

"We are engaging with suppliers, government authorities and our associates to take the necessary actions for a prompt solution," she told the BBC.
Sugarcane production has been falling due to price controls and rising production costs, as well as problems in obtaining fertiliser.
Venezuela is expected to see a 20,000 tonne-drop in production from 450,000 tonnes in 2015/2016 for the previous 12 months, to  430,000 tonnes of sugarcane in 2016/17.
