Coke drops FCB after Pepsi court victory

NEW YORK - Coca-Cola has snubbed Foote, Cone and Belding, stripping it of two accounts after the Chicago based-agency was taken to court by PepsiCo, which had previously used it to handle its Aquafina bottled-water brand.

Coke has taken its Dasani bottled-water account from the agency, as well as Powerade.

Last week, PepsiCo successfully sought a ruling preventing account executives who previously worked on the Aquafina account from working on Coke's Dasani brand. Coke has now moved the account back to its previous agency, Berlin Cameron & Partners, a New York independent.

Powerade work has gone back to Wieden & Kennedy in Portland.

FCB lost the Pepsi work in September but replaced it with the two Coke brands in October, when the soft-drinks giant consolidated its roster, with the Interpublic Group of Companies and WPP Group picking up the majority of the work.
