The non-alcoholic beverage industry is made up of carbonated soft drinks, fruit


and vegetable juices, bottled water, sports and energy drinks, concentrates, and ready to
drink teas and coffee. Nonalcoholic beverage is composed of $395 billion world market
with carbonated drinks having the largest share at $150 billion. However, the carbonated
drink market exhibited a negative growth rate of 0.4 percent in 2007 in the United States
and is forecasted to continue to decline in the upcoming years. This is because of the
