As is the norm, Israel’s Bnei Brak Coca Cola plant is up and running in Pesach mode far ahead of the yomtov. Coca Cola in Eretz Yisrael is under the hashgacha of HaGaon HaRav Moshe Yehuda Leib Landau Shlita.
The bottling plant is always kashered far ahead of yomtov to enable shipping the product around the world. While Coca Cola prohibits importing the soft drink from one country to another, special dispensations are made in the case of Pesach to accommodate Coke fans who seek Rav Landau’s mehadrin hashgacha for Pesach.
