Mexico: Mexicos president says Constellation Brands accepts outcome of vote against new brewery in Mexicali
Mexico's president said on April 1 he had held productive talks with executives from U.S. brewer Constellation Brands Inc and that they accepted the outcome of a vote in the northern city of Mexicali to cancel a billion-dollar brewery being built there, Yahoo News reported.
President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said in his regular morning news conference that new sites for the company's brewery are being considered and that Constellation Brands had agreed to accept a negotiated solution on how to proceed.
Mexicali is in one of the driest areas of Mexico and locals who were opposed to the brewery said the plant would endanger local water supplies. Constellation Brands disputed that.
