Coca Cola Pricing Strategy

 Throughout the years Coca Cola has made many pricing decisions
but one might say that their ultimate goal has always been to
maximize shareholder value.
 . In 2003 both Coke and Pepsi had a solid presence in India and
had each introduced a 300mL bottle. In order to grab market share
Pepsi began to drop prices (even with summer approaching, which
was contrary to policy in America). Shortly thereafter, Coca Cola
decided to drop their prices slightly, but focused on the reduced
price point of their 200mL container. As discussed in articles from
financial express and, Coca Cola planned to use the
lower price point to penetrate new cities that were especially price
sensitive. The carbonated soft drink market in India is nearly 37%
of the total beverage market there.
This low price strategy was not unfamiliar to Coca Cola. As
referenced in the HBR article,
Cola Wars Continue: Coke & Pepsi in the Twenty-First Century, both
bottlers utilized a low price strategy in the early 1990s. After
annihilating the low price store brands, Coke chose to reposition
itself as a "Premium" brand and then raise prices.

 PEPSI: A quote from Pepsi Co's CEO

"The more successful they are, the
sharper we have to be. If the Coca
Cola company didn't exist, we'd pray
for someone to invent them."
