History of coco cola

Doctor John Pemberton

Coca-Cola was invented by Doctor John Pemberton a pharmacist

from Atlanta Georgia in May of 1886. John Pemberton concocted
the Coca Cola formula in a three legged brass kettle; all this was
done in his backyard. The name Coca Cola was actually given to
John Pemberton by his bookkeeper Frank Robinson .
Frank Robinson had excellent penmanship. He first scripted "Coca
Cola" into the flowing letters which has become the famous logo
we know and love today.

The soft drink was first sold to the public at the soda fountain in
Jacob's Pharmacy in Atlanta on May 8, 1886. About nine servings
of the soft drink were sold each day. Sales for that first year added
up to a total of about $50. The funny thing was that it cost John
Pemberton over $70 in expanses, so the first year of sales were a
loss. Until 1905, the soft drink, marketed as a tonic, contained
extracts of cocaine as well as the caffeine-rich kola nut.
In 1887, another Atlanta pharmacist and businessman, Asa
Candler bought the formula for Coca Cola from inventor John
Pemberton for $2,300.
By the late 1890s, Coca Cola was one of America's most popular
fountain drinks; Candler's aggressive marketing of the product
takes credit for that. With Asa Candler, now at the helm, the Coca
Cola Company increased syrup sales by over 4000% between 1890
and 1900.
Advertising was an important factor in John Pemberton and Asa
Candler's success and by the turn of the century, the drink was
sold across the United States and Canada. Coca Cola began selling
syrup to independent bottling companies licensed to sell the
drink. Still today, the US soft drink industry is organized on this
principle .

EVOLUTION OF coca -cola

Coca-Cola® originated as a soda fountain beverage in 1886 selling

for five cents a glass. Early growth was impressive, but it was only
when a strong bottling system developed that Coca-Cola became
the world-famous brand it is today.

1894 – A modest start for a Bold Idea

In a candy store in Vicksburg, Mississippi, brisk sales of the new
fountain beverage called Coca-Cola impressed the store's owner,
Joseph A.Biedenharn. He began bottling Coca-Cola to sell, using a
common glass bottle called a Hutchinson. Biedenharn sent a case
to Asa Griggs Candler, who owned the Company. Candler thanked
him but took no action. One of his nephews already had urged
that Coca-Cola be bottled,
but Candler focused on fountain sales.

1899 The first bottling agreement

Two young attorneys from Chattanooga, Tennessee
Believed they could build a business around bottling
Coca-Cola. In a meeting with Candler,Benjamin
F. Thomas and Joseph B. Whitehead obtained
exclusiverights to bottle Coca-Cola across most of
the United States (specifically excluding Vicksburg)
for the sum of one dollar. A third Chattanoogalawyer, John T.
Lupton, soon joined their venture.

1900-1909 … Rapid growth
The three pioneer bottlers divided the country into territories and
sold bottling rights to local entrepreneurs. Their efforts were
boosted by major progress in bottling technology, which improved
efficiency and product quality. By 1909, nearly 400 Coca-Cola
bottling plants were operating, most of them family-owned
businesses. Some were open only during hot-weather months
when demand was high.

1916 … Birth of the contour bottle

Bottlers worried that the straight-sided bottle for

Coca-Cola was easily confused with imitators. A
Group representing the Company and bottlers
asked glass manufacturers to offer ideas for a
distinctive bottle. A design from the Root Glass
Company of Terre Haute,Indiana won enthusiastic
approval in 1915 and Was introduced in 1916. The contour bottle
became one of the few packages ever granted
trademark status by the U.S. Patent Office. Today,
it's one of the most recognized icons in the world -even in the

1920s … Bottling overtakes fountain sales

As the 1920s dawned, more than 1,000 Coca-Cola
bottlers were operating in the U.S. Their ideas and
zeal fueled steady growth. Six-bottle cartons were

a huge hit after their 1923 introduction. A few years later, open-
top metal coolers became the forerunners of automated vending
machines. By the end of the 1920s, bottle sales of Coca-Cola
exceeded fountain sales.

1920s and 30s … International expansion

Led by longtime Company leader Robert W. Woodruff,

Chief executive officer and chairman of the Board,
the Company began a major push to establish
bottling operations outside the U.S. Plants were
opened in France, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Belgium, Italy,
Peru, Spain, Australia and South Africa. By the time World War II
began, Coca-Cola was being bottled in 44 countries.

1940s … Post-war growth

During the war, 64 bottling plants were set
up around the world to supply the troops.
This followed an urgent request for bottling
equipment and materials from General
Eisenhower's base in North Africa. Many of
these war-time plants were later converted
to civilian use, permanently enlarging the
bottling system and accelerating the growth
of the Company's worldwide business.

1950s … Packaging innovations
For the first time, consumers had choices of
Coca-Cola package size and type -- the traditional
6.5-ounce contour bottle, or larger servings
including 10-, 12- and 26-ounce versions.
Cans were also introduced, becoming generally available in 1960.

1960s … New brands introduced

Following Fanta® in the 1950s, Sprite®, Minute Maid®, Fresca®

and TaB® joined brand Coca-Cola in the 1960s. Mr. Pibb® and
Mello Yello® were added in the 1970s. The 1980s brought diet
Coke® and Cherry Coke®, followed by POWERADE® and DASANI®
in the 1990s. Today hundreds of other brands are offered to meet
consumer preferences in local markets around the world.

1970s and 80s … Consolidation to serve customers

As technology led to a global economy, the retailers who sold

Coca-Cola merged and evolved into international mega-chains.
Such customers required a new approach. In response, many
small and medium-size bottlers consolidated to better serve giant
international customers. The Company encouraged and invested
in a number of bottler consolidations to assure that its largest
bottling partners would have capacity to lead the system in
working with global retailers.

1990s … New and growing markets

Political and economic changes opened vast markets that were

closed or underdeveloped for decades. After the fall of the Berlin
Wall, the Company invested heavily to build plants in Eastern
Europe. And as the century closed, more than $1.5 billion was
committed to new bottling facilities in Africa.

21st Century

The Coca-Cola bottling system grew up with roots deeply planted

in local communities. This heritage serves the Company well today
as people seek brands that honor local identity and the
distinctiveness of local markets. As was true a century ago, strong
locally based relationships between Coca- Cola bottlers,
customers and communities are the foundation on which the
entire business grows.

2001 … launched the new fridge pack in USA a thinner longer 12
pack design.

2005 … innovative aluminum contour bottles introduced

commonly called M5 as the magnificent five bottles., Coca Cola
zero a zero calorie coca cola with real coca cola taste launched.

2006 … coca cola turns 120. Launches the “every drop counts”
campaign to make the consumers remind of the variety of
products coca cola offers.

2007 … launches the PET bottle which uses 5% less plastic than
the other PET bottles. Opens up new world of coca cola in Atlanta
Georgia on may 24th.

of Coca-Cola as the Worldwide Olympic Partner in the

nonalcoholic beverages category through 2020.

The deal also extends our partnership with the Olympic Games –

a relationship that began in 1928 – to 92 years without


With the latest 12-year pact, our support of the Olympic Games

Games, the London 2012 Olympic

coca-cola in India

Coca-Cola was the leading soft drink brand in India until 1977

when it left rather than reveals its formula to the government and

reduces its equity stake as required under the Foreign Exchange

Regulation Act (FERA) which governed the operations of foreign

companies in India. After a 16-year absence, Coca-Cola returned

to India in 1993, cementing its presence with a deal that gave

Coca-Cola ownership of the nation's top soft-drink brands and

bottling network. Coke’s acquisition of local popular Indian

brands including Thums Up (the most trusted brand in India21),

Limca,Maaza, Citra and Gold Spot provided not only physical

manufacturing,bottling, and distribution assets but also strong

consumer preference.

Thiscombination of local and global brands enabled Coca-Cola to

exploit the benefits of global branding and global trends in tastes

while also tapping into traditional domestic markets.

84 Leading Indian brands joined the Company's international

family of brands, including Coca- Cola, diet Coke, Sprite and Fanta,

plus the Schweppes product range. In 2000, the company

launched the Kinley water brand and in 2001, Shock energy drink

and the powdered concentrate Sunfill hit the market.

From 1993 to 2003, Coca-Cola invested more than US$1 billion in

India, making it one of the country’s top international investors.22

By 2003, Coca- Cola India had won the prestigious Woodruf Cup

from among 22 divisions of the Company based on three broad

parameters of volume, profitability, and quality. Coca-Cola India

achieved 39% volume growth in 2002 while the industry grew 23%

nationally and the Company reached breakeven profitability in the

region for the first time.23 Encouraged by its 2002

performance, Coca-Cola India announced plans to double its

capacity at an investment of $125 million (Rs. 750 crore) between

September 2002 and March 2003.24 Coca-Cola India produced its

beverages with 7,000 local employees at its twenty-seven wholly-

owned bottling operations supplemented by seventeen

franchisee-owned bottling operations and a network of twenty-

nine contractpackers to manufacture a range of products for the

company. The complete manufacturing process had a

documented quality control and 84 assurance program including

over 400 tests performed throughout the process

The complexity of the consumer soft drink market demanded a

distribution process to support 700,000 retail outlets serviced by a

fleet that includes 10- ton trucks, open-bay three wheelers, and

trademarked tricycles and pushcarts that were used to navigate

the narrow alleyways of the cities.25 In addition to its own

employees, Coke indirectly created employment for another

125,000 Indians through its procurement, supply, and distribution


global community with the world’s largest selling soft drink concentrates

since 1886, returned to India in 1993 after a 16 year hiatus, giving a new

thumbs up to the Indian soft drink market. In the same year, the

Company took over ownership of the nation’s top soft-drink brand and

bottling network. It’s no wonder our brands have assumed an iconic

status in the minds of the world’s consumers.

A Healthy Growth to The Indian Economy

Ever since, Coca-Cola India has made significant investments to build and

continually consolidate its business in the country, including new

production facilities, waste water treatment plants, distribution systems,

and marketing channels.

Coca-Cola India is among the country’s top international investors,

having invested more than US$ 1 billion in India in the first decade, and

further pledged another US$100 million in 2003 for its operations.

A Pure Commitment to The Indian Economy

The Company has shaken up the Indian carbonated drinks market

greatly, giving consumers the pleasure of world-class drinks to fill up

their hydration, refreshment, and nutrition needs. It has also been

instrumental in giving an exponential growth to the country’s job listings.

Creating Enormous Job Opportunities

With virtually all the goods and services required to produce and market

Coca-Cola being made in India, the business system of the Company

directly employs approximately 6,000 people, and indirectly creates

employment for more than 125,000 people in related industries through

its vast procurement, supply, and distribution system.

The Indian operations comprises of 50 bottling operations, 25 owned by

the Company, with another 25 being owned by franchisees. That apart, a

network of 21 contract packers manufacture a range of products for the

Company. On the distribution front, 10-tonne trucks – open bay three-

wheelers that can navigate the narrow alleyways of Indian cities –

constantly keep our brands available in every nook and corner of the

country’s remotest areas. These are only some of the facts that speak

about our commitment to the growth of the Indian Economy.

Coca-Cola India Pvt Ltd maintained its leading position in
soft drinks in India, followed by PepsiCo India Holdings Pvt
Ltd in 2006. Whilst the retail volume shares of Coca-Cola
India and PepsiCo India slipped in 2006, as a result of the
growing health concerns caused by the aftermath of the
pesticides controversy, both maintained a comfortable lead
over the other manufacturers. Parle ,Bisleri Ltd has steadily
gained shares from the carbonates giants over the review
period, to emerge as the third ranked company in 2006.
The battleground for beverages has moved from
carbonates to bottled water and fruit/vegetable juice, with
manufacturers turning their attention towards these
healthier beverages, as consumer interest continues to
surge forward. A number of new players have entered
fruit/vegetable juice and bottled water, vying for a slice of
the growing pie.

While cricket had always been the most popular sport in
India, with new technology coming into cricket from
coverage to sports gear to day/night versions of the game,
it was set to acquire the status of a religion in the sub-
continent. Pepsi picked up the opportunity early on by not
only contracting the rights to all Tests and One Day
Internationals (ODIs) played in India, but also signing up top
performers early such as Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid
and creating some very cutting edge and memorable
advertising campaigns with them.
The distribution network of Coca cola had 6.5 lakh outlets
across the country , which the company is planning to
increase to 8 lakhs . On the other hand Pepsi Co's
distribution network had 6 lakh outlets across the country
which it is planning to increase to 7.5 Lakh .

Coca Cola’s Brand

Coca cola is “US” brand. Because they believe in the

togetherness, being people together and friends are
being together. Coca Cola strongly believes that
Pakistani temperament is “US” not “ME”

Pepsi’s Brand

Pepsi’s brand is basically “ME” branded. They use the

temperament of “ME”. In contrast to Coke they
believe on individual struggle.

HCCBPL has a wide and well-managed network of salesmen

appointed for taking up the responsibility of distribution of
products to diverse parts of the cities. The distribution
channels are constructed in such a way that the demand of
customers is fulfilled at the right place and the right time
when they need it.
A typical distribution chain at HCCBPL would be:

Production --- Plant Warehouse --- Depot Warehouse --- Distribution

Warehouse --- Retail Stock --- Retail Shelf --- Consumer

The customers of the Company are divided into different

categories and different routes, and every salesman is
assigned to one particular route, which is to be followed by
him on a daily basis. A detailed and wellorganized
distribution system contributes to the efficiency of the
salesmen. It also leads to low costs, higher sales and higher
efficiency thereby leading higher profits to the firm.


· DISTRIBUTION NETWORK: The Company has a strong

distribution network consisting of a number of efficient salesmen,

700,000 retail outlets and 8000 distributors. The distribution fleet

includes different modes of distribution, from 10-tonne trucks to

open-bay three wheelers that can navigate through narrow

alleyways of Indian cities and trademarked tricycles.

· STRONG BRANDS: The Coca-Cola has been named the world's

top brand for a fourth consecutive year in a survey by consultancy

Interbrand. It was estimated that the Coca-Cola brand was worth

$70.45billion. People all over the world enjoy coca cola products

more than 1.3 billion times per day.

· COST OF OPERATIONS: The production, marketing and

distribution systems are very efficient due to forward planning

and maintenance of consistency of operations, which minimizes

wastage of both time and resources, leads to lowering of costs.


· LOW EXPORT LEVELS: The brands produced by the company are

brands produced world wide thereby making the export levels

very low. In India, there exists a major controversy concerning

pesticides and other harmful chemicals in bottled products

including Coca-Cola.Therefore, people abroad, are apprehensive

about Coca-Cola products from India.



The Company’s operations are carried out on a small scale

and due to Government restrictions and ‘red-tapism’, the

Company finds it very difficult to invest in technological

advancements and achieve economies of scale.

· LARGE DOMESTIC MARKETS: Coca-Cola India claims a 60.1

per cent share of the soft drinks market; this includes a 42 per

cent share of the cola market. Other products account for 18.1 per

cent market share, chiefly led by Limca.

· EXPORT POTENTIAL: The Company can come up with new

products, which are not manufactured abroad, like Maaza etc and

export them to foreign nations. It can come up with strategies to

eliminate apprehension from the minds of the people towards the

Coke products produced in India.

· HIGHER INCOME AMONG PEOPLE: Development of India as a

whole has lead to an increase in the per capita income thereby

causing an increase in disposable income. The beverage industry

can take advantage of such a situation and enhance their sales.


· IMPORTS: As India is developing at a fast pace, the per capita

income has increased over the years .If consumers shift onto

imported beverages rather than have beverages manufactured

within the country, it could pose a threat to the Indian beverage

industry as a whole in turn affecting the sales of the Company.

· TAX AND REGULATORY SECTOR: The tax system in India is

accompanied by a variety of regulations at each stage on the

consequence from production to consumption. Therefore, this can

limit the growth of the Company and pose problems.

· SLOWDOWN IN RURAL DEMAND: Low per capita disposable

income, large number of daily wage earners, poor roads; power

problems; and inaccessibility to conventional advertising media.

All these problems might lead to a slowdown in the demand for

the company’s products.


should keep a eye on the changing preferences of the consumers.

Challenges and Risks

Being a global company provides unique opportunities for their

Company. Challenges and risks accompany those opportunities.

Their management has identified certain challenges and risks that

demand the attention of the nonalcoholic Beverages segment of

the commercial beverages industry and their Company. Of these,

their key challenges and Risks are discussed below :

Evolving Consumer Preferences:

Consumers want more choices. They are impacted by shifting

consumer Demographics and needs, on-the-go lifestyles, aging

populations in developed markets and consumers who are

empowered with more information than ever. They are

committed to generating new avenues for growth through their

core brands with a focus on diet and light products.

They are also committed to continuing to expand the Variety of

choices they provide to consumers to meet their needs, desires

and lifestyle choices.

Increased Competition and Capabilities in the

Their Company is facing strong competition from some well-

established global companies and many local participants. They

must continue to selectively expand into other profitable

segments of the non-alcoholic beverages segment of the

commercial beverages industry and strengthen their capabilities in

marketing and innovation in order to maintain their brand loyalty

and market share. All these challenges and risks—obesity and

inactive lifestyles, water quality and quantity, evolving Consumer

preferences, and increased competition and capabilities in the

marketplace— have the potential to Have a material adverse

effect on the non-alcoholic beverages segment of the commercial

beverages industry anon their Company; however, they believe

their Company is well positioned to appropriately address these

challenges And risks.

Criticisms relating to Coca Cola

The Coca-Cola Company and its products have been

criticized by various sources for various reasons including

negative health effects resulting from consumption of its

products, exploitative labor practices, high levels of

pesticides in its products, building plants in Nazi Germany

which employed slave labor, environmental destruction,

monopolistic business practices,

hiring paramilitary units to murder union leaders, and

marketing unhealthy products to children.

Environmental issues

In India, there exists widespread concern over how Coca-

Cola is produced. In particular, it is feared that the water
used to produce Coke may contain unhealthy levels of
pesticides and other harmful chemicals. It has also been
alleged that due to the amount of water required to
produce Coca-Cola, aquifers are drying up and forcing
farmers to relocate.

Pesticide use
In 2003, the Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), a
nongovernmental organisation in New Delhi, said aerated
waters produced by soft drinks manufacturers in India,
including multinational giants Pepsico and Coca-Cola,
contained toxins including lindane, DDT, malathion and
chlorpyrifos — pesticides that can contribute to cancer and
a breakdown of the immune system. Tested products
included Coke, Pepsi, and several other soft drinks (7Up,
Mirinda, Fanta, Thums Up, Limca, Sprite), many produced
by The Coca-Cola Company.
CSE found that the Indian produced Pepsi's soft drink
products had 36 times the level of pesticide residues
permitted under European Union regulations; Coca Cola's
30 times. CSE said it had tested the same products in the US
and found no such residues.
Coca-Cola and PepsiCo angrily denied allegations that their
products manufactured in India contained toxin levels far
above the norms permitted in the developed world. David
Cox, Coke's Hong Kong-based communications director for
Asia, accused Sunita Narain, CSE's director, of "brand
jacking" — using Coke's brand name to draw attention to
her campaign against pesticides. Narain defended CSE's
actions by describing them as a natural follow-up to a
previous study it did on bottled water.

In 2004, an Indian parliamentary committee backed up

CSE's findings, and a government-appointed committee was
tasked with developing the world's first pesticide standards
for soft drinks. Coke and PepsiCo oppose the move, arguing
that lab tests aren't reliable enough to detect minute traces
of pesticides in complex drinks like soda. The Coca-Cola
Company has responded that its plants filter water to
remove potential contaminants and that its products are
tested for pesticides and must meet minimum health
standards before they are distributed. Coca-Cola had
registered a 15 percent drop in sales after the pesticide
allegations were made in 2003.

As of 2005, Coke and Pepsi together hold 95% market share

of soft-drink sales in India.

In 2006, the Indian state of Kerala banned the sale and

production of Coca- Cola, along with other soft drinks, due
to concerns of high levels of pesticide residue On Friday,
September 22, 2006, the High Court in Kerala overturned
the Kerala ban ruling that only the federal government can
ban food products.


 Cocacola ranks no.1 brand in the world by the business

world survey followed by companies like Microsoft and


 Cocacola is the market leader in the whole world in

beverage industry.

 Business week magazine ranks Cocacola on 4th position in

Indian FMCG industry.

 Cocacola enjoys approx 60% market share in Indian

beverage Industry.


From a historical standpoint, Coca-Cola and Pepsi were

facing obstructions even before entering the market in the
late 1980’s. Coca-Cola’s past venture in India had ended on
bad terms with the Indian government
Alcoholic Non-Alcoholic
Carbonated Non-Carbonated
Cola Non-Cola Non-Cola

when they refused to offer up their trade secrets. During

the absence of foreign investment in the soft drink industry
in India a local company, Parle, became the market leader.
Parle invested a great deal into their leading brand, Thums
Up, and played a dominant role in the soft drink industry
until the liberalization of the Indian economy in 1991. After
this time many of the political and legal obstacles facing
Coca-Cola and Pepsi were lessened.


Other political challenges hindered the success of Coca-Cola

and Pepsi in India as well. In 2003, when the United States
and Britain invaded Iraq, the All-India Anti-Imperialist
Forum called a boycott on goods from America and India.
Indian’s protested American companies for the war and
specifically targeted Coca-Cola and Pepsi products. While
the war was beyond control for these two companies,
management perhaps could’ve done more to not only
attempt to predict the backlash from Indian consumers due
to the war, but also could’ve created advertisement
campaigns to address the situation.

While political and legal factors produced problems for

Coca-Cola and Pepsi, both Coca-Cola and Pepsi did a lot of
things to prevent that situation from happening. Both
companies heavily participated in the cultural festival of
Navratri in western India to promote their products and
create brand awareness in a culturally traditional setting.

Coca-Cola and Pepsi also made the right moves by adapting to

cultural barriers in India. One such barrier was the affordability of
products for Indians. Because India is a country where people are
known to live on very little a day, the idea of getting people to
spend what little they have on a soft drink could be quite a
stretch. However Coca-Cola India went with an aggressive pricing
policy and reduced the price of their soft drinks in 2003 from 15%
to 25% nationwide. To compete competitively in the market,
Pepsi reduced their prices as well. This move allowed both
companies to offer products that were affordable to the target
market in India but also encouraged more Indians to consume
Pepsi and Coca-Cola products.

Both companies also created smaller sized bottles to allow for

lower prices for Indian consumers. Coca-Cola and Pepsi created
bottles ranging in size from 200 ml to 500 ml to adapt to cultural
needs and increase their sales. By offering smaller sized bottles
many consumers also increased the frequency in which they were
purchasing the soft drinks.


The basic proposition of our business is simple, solid and

timeless. When we bring refreshment, value, joy and fun to

our stakeholders, then we successfully nurture and protect

our brands, particularly Coca-Cola. That is the key to

fulfilling our ultimate obligation to provide consistently

attractive returns to the owners of our business.


Coke’s commercials basically based on young generations,

So, the young generation is the target market of Coke

because they want to represent Coke with the youth and

energy but they also consider about the old people they

take then as a co-target market.


In last 2 years Coke has come back in aggressive manner.

· Attractive brand name

· Brand differentiating

Attractive Brand Name

Now the consumers know the Name of Coke, because Coke

is the name, which is the most popular after the word “ok”.

So people can better differentiate brands with each other.

Brand Differentiation

Now different companies have got different brand names.

So, people can distinguish between brands. Two major

brands “coke” and “Pepsi” also have brand names.


If Coke is considered a luxury product. Then there is the tax rate
15% - sales tax
20% - excise duty
27% - goes to government
03% - In making Budget
After paying all these taxes coke has to pay electricity charges. We
have to spend on distributions. After paying all these expenses
Coke’s margin squeezed and consumers have to pay for increasing
These are the opportunities through which we can increase the
price and can get profits.

There are much more threats in increasing prices. Because same
problem of substitute. If Coke increase the price lets say 1 rupee.
Then people definitely won’t go for coke. They have the best
substitute of Coke that is Pepsi. So these are the threats in
increasing prices.
Coke will lose the margin of its profit and can face loss.


Our local marketing strategy enables Coke to listen to all

the voices around the world asking for beverages that span
the entire spectrum of tastes and occasions. What people
want in a beverage is a reflection of who they are, where
they live, how they work and play, and how they relax and
recharge. Whether you're a student in the United States
enjoying a
refreshing Coca-Cola, a woman in Italy taking a tea break, a
child in Peru asking for a juice drink, or a couple in Korea
buying bottled water after a run together, we're there for
you. We are determined not only to make great drinks, but
also to contribute to communities around the world
through our commitments to education, health, wellness,
and diversity. Coke strives to be a good neighbor,
consistently shaping our business decisions to improve the
quality of life in the communities in which we do business.
It's a special thing to have billions of friends around the
world, and we never forget it.

The conclusion of the study is that in these 22 villages there are

total 375 outlets out of which 228 outlets are coke exclusive,12

outlets are pepsi exclusive,46 are are in shared state and rest 89

outlets not selling any cold drink.

61% market is captured by coke, 3% market is captured by pepsi,

12% market is in shared and 24% market still not selling any cold

drink. Therefore , this % of market yet not covered by any soft

drink company.

Hence ,There is huge potential area that is of 24% in these rural

markets .So, company can expand Its market share by capturing

this potential market as soon as because competitors having same

eye on this market.

In this research I found that only 30% retailers are satisfy outher

wise other 70% are unsatisfied by the company and they sale coco

cola products just due due to its market demand . They were

unsatisfied due to company’s schemes , hordings ,rack,stand,

counter ,cooling equipments and normally products are not

available at the delivery person according to their demand .


The most popular flavour is Thums up! In the whole market.

Coco-Cola is demanded as a substitute of Thums Up!

The second most popular flavour is Sprite.

Thums Up! Has the highest sale from Coco-Cola company.

Pepsi provides more schemes then Coco-Cola.

In the peak season retailers facing problem of cooling and

storage of bottles, they need an colling equipment as a Visi-


In rural market :

» Thums Up! , Sprite & Coca-Cola are in huge demand.

» Limca & Fenta were less demanded .

» Mazza & Minute pulpy orange having neglegeable sale.


The company must try to make different brands of coco-cola

available at every retail outlet whether it is large or
small,otherwise the consumer may go for substitute.
Sales people and delivery persons should monitor the market
whether stocks are available or not and they deliver to each
and every retailer of coke when they do supply.
Company can also provide the racks , boards , counter and
stands by this retailer feels that company provide them other
then revenue so,it becomes company’s satisfied retailer
Company should do this because it is also a mean of
Display material should be provided to the retailers on more
regular basis to increase the sales level.
Maintenance work of Vigicooler; i.e. Staplizer & cooling
problem are common ,company must improved it.
The company should take steps to replace damaged or
unsellable & less water content coco-cola goods frequently
from the retailers.
