OTTAWA, July 31 (Reuters) - Cott Corp BCB.TO COT.N, the world’s biggest maker of private label soft drinks, reported a second-quarter loss on Thursday as higher prices were more than offset by a 6.4 percent decline in revenue.
Cott, which said last month it will cut jobs as part of a plan to reduce costs by up to $44 million annually, said it lost $1.8 million, or 3 cents a share, for the period ended June 28. That compares with profit $4.7 million, or 7 cents per share, in the same period last year. ($1=$1.02 Canadian) (Reporting by Susan Taylor; Editing by Scott Anderson)
