Fiji Water Co. LLC has reopened it bottling plant on Fiji's main island of Viti Levu, after temporarily shutting it down to protest a new 15-cent-per-liter tax on bottled water. The company posted a brief statement about the decision on its blog:
Following discussions today with Fijian officials, Fiji Water will reopen its bottling plant, effective Wednesday morning, Dec. 1, at its regular start-up time of 8 a.m. Through our discussions, we have also agreed to comply with Fiji's new water tax law. Moving forward, FIJI Water is committed to working with the Fijian government, and remains dedicated to helping the country's economy and its people.
