GlaxoSmithKline, the maker of Ribena, has been fined $217,500 in the Auckland District Court after admitting it mislead customers about the vitamin C content of the blackcurrant drink. The charges, brought by the Commerce Commission, arose from an investigation by teenage Pakuranga College students Anna Devathasan and Jenny Suo into the vitamin C levels of the popular Ribena drink, which has sales of about $8 million a year.
