UPDATE 1-Coca-Cola Bottling Co suspends 401(K) match

LOS ANGELES, Feb 20 (Reuters) - Coca-Cola Bottling Co Consolidated COKE.O said it will suspend matching contributions to its employee 401(K) plan starting April 1, according to a regulatory filing on Friday.

Prior to the suspension, the company provided a dollar-for-dollar match of up to 5 percent of an employee’s annual eligible pay.

The move comes as a deteriorating global economy has forced companies across industries to slash costs. (Reporting by Lisa Baertlein)
