MillerCoors argues high-fructose corn sugar debate hurts all beer
February 27, 2019
MillerCoors is arguing that the Bud Light commercial raising the issue of high-fructose corn syrup in its competitors' products is hurting an industry hit by declining sales, VinePair reported.
"There's been much ado about Bud Light's 2019 Super Bowl commercials slighting rival brands Miller Lite and Coors Light for using corn syrup in their beers," VinePair said, noting that MillerCoors argues that the campaign could prove detrimental to the beer industry as a whole.
The Wall Street Journal reported that the fight between brewers threatens a planned industrywide campaign to revive beer sales.
