D) "who" clearly modifies "consumers" and "it" clearly refers to "company"

we need 'who' to properly introduce the modifier for the consumers.
Between D and E, I'l take D

D uses 'that' to introduce a subjunctive mood since a demand was made. 'It' properly refers to the Coca-Cola Company.

D it is.
