Fiji Water has decided to shut down its bottle processing water plant, after getting involved in a tax dispute with the local government. The company said that the government has raised the taxes by a massive amount, and will likely be paying 45 times more taxes than its current figures. It is really a point of big concern, especially for the 400 workers who work for this famous American brand.
Fiji is natural bottled water, which is shipped directly from the islands of Fiji, as a result it is an expensive branded drinking water. The reason the company has been shunned by the government is because the company uses more energy in transporting and manufacturing bottled water compared to other companies, in fact they waste lot of conventional energy and cause harm to the environment.
The Fijian government had to take a strict action against the company, as the company was extracting around 3.5 million ltrs of water from their country at a very low cost and transporting them to the US. In all it practically made no sense, as it was only plain water that people in US were buying after paying heavy cash.
