  • R.I.P. – TaB discontinued in Iceland

    Hi !

    Very,very sad news from Iceland – Vifilfell – maker of TAB, Coca Cola and other products in Iceland will stop production of TAB this spring. The last batch og 2L TAB is currently in stores but one batch of 1/2L TAB is yet to be produced and will probably sell out by this spring. TAB was introduced to the Icelandic market in 1982 and has been widely available through the country ever since.


    Best Regards,
    Gos Sverrisson, Iceland

    So sorry to hear about this, but thanks for the update Gos 🙁

    Do you need help finding TaB?

    If you cannot find TaB at your local grocery store, your first step should be to ask your store for the contact information for your local Coca-Cola bottler/distributor. You can also check our listing of Coca-Cola bottlers and distributers. Your bottler/distributor can tell if you they bottle TaB, and where you can find TaB in your area.

    If the bottler’s name and contact info is crossed out (like this), that means the bottler no longer distributes or manufactures TaB. This list was hard to put together so it’s not perfectly accurate, but it’s a start!

    If TaB is made/distributed by your bottler/distributer, than any market that sells Coke products should be able to order some TaB for you. Usually smaller stores are more receptive. If your market is resistant, it may help to “pre-buy” a certain number of cases per month, so they don’t have to worry about the TaB not selling.

    If TaB is not available in your area (check our list of TaB-less areas in the US), I strongly suggest writing letters to your local bottler/distributer and calling your local bottler expressing your dissatisfaction. It’s important to remember that The Coca-Cola Company has NOT discontinued TaB – your local bottler made that decision so you need to complain directly to them.

    You can also try:

  • Emailing Coke with your complaint
    (Don’t expect much of a response though – they can’t do much, only your local bottler/distributer can make the decision to make TaB again)
  • Use the Complain-O-Matic to help compose a letter to your bottler or the The Coca-Cola Company
  • Snail mail The Coca-Cola Company:
