businesses. We strive to understand each customer’s
COCA COLA INTERNATIONAL
Coca-Cola Enterprises, established in 1886, is a young
company by the standards of the Coca-Cola system.
Yet each of its franchises has a strong heritage in the
traditions of Coca-Cola that is the foundation for this
The Coca-Cola Company traces it’s beginning to 1886,
when an Atlanta pharmacist, Dr. John Pemberton,
began to produce Coca-Cola syrup for sale in fountain
drinks. However the bottling business began in 1899
when two Chattanooga businessmen, Benjamin F.
Thomas and Joseph B. Whitehead, secured the
exclusive rights to bottle and sell Coca-Cola for most of
the United States from The Coca-Cola Company.
The Coca-Cola bottling system continued to operate as
independent, local businesses until the early 1980s
when bottling franchises began to consolidate. In 1986,
The Coca-Cola Company merged some of its company-
owned operations with two large ownership groups that
employees all over the world. It is often referred to simply as
Coke or (in European and American countries) as Cola or
Being the biggest company in the soft drink industry, Coca

This shows that the market of the company is geographically
vast and it is controlling it with great success. In 2002, the
company grew their carbonated soft-drink business by nearly
250 million unit cases and generated record volumes.
Because carbonated soft drinks are the largest growth
segment within the nonalcoholic ready-to-drink beverage
category measured by volume, that is why they are focusing
more on this and they are continually increasing the pace
because they know that accelerating this pace is crucial to
innovative marketing programmers, which has deepened the
relationship of the customers and Coca Cola. The financial
health and success of their bottling partners is a critical
component of The Coca-Cola Company's ability to build and
deliver leading brands.

Political Analysis for Coca-Cola
Non-alcoholic beverages fall within the food category under
the FDA. The government plays a role within the operation of
manufacturing these products in terms of regulations. There
are potential fines set by the government on companies if
they do not meet a standard of laws.
The following are some of the factors that could cause Coca-
Cola company's actual results to differ materially from the
expected results described in their underlying company's
Changes in laws and regulations, including changes in
accounting standards, taxation requirements, (including
tax rate changes, new tax laws and revised tax law
interpretations) and environmental laws in domestic or
Changes in the non-alcoholic business environment.
These include, without limitation, competitive product
and pricing pressures and their ability to gain or
maintain share of sales in the global market as a result
of action by competitors.
Political conditions, especially in international markets,
including civil unrest, government changes and
to paying attention to what people from different cultures and
backgrounds like to drink, and where and how they like to
drink it, to remain competitive and to develop more new
drinks to satisfy its markets.
Now, the estimated brand equity of Coca-Cola is $84billion,
market share of more than 50 percent in beverage industry
globally and about 70 percent of its income comes from
countries outside United States. Every 10 seconds, 126,000
people in the whole world, choose to reach out for one of
The Coca-Cola Company brands, and it is the company’s
mission to make that choice exciting and satisfying, every
Previously the U.S. economy was strong and nearly every
part of it was growing and doing well. However, things
changed. Before the attacks on September 11, 2001, the
United States was starting to see the economy recover
slightly and it is only just recently that they achieved the
economic levels. Consumers are now resuming their normal
habits, going to the malls, car shopping, and eating out at
restaurants. However, many are still handling their money
cautiously. They believe that with lower inflation still to come,
consumers will recover their confidence over the next year.
As researching for new products would cost less the Coca-
Cola Company will sell its products for less and the people
will spend as they would get cheap products from Coca-cola.
Many U.S. citizens are practicing healthier lifestyles. This
has affected the non-alcoholic beverage industry in that
many are switching to bottled water and diet colas instead of
beer and other alcoholic beverages. Also, time management
has increased and is at approximately 43% of all
households. The need for bottled water and other more
convenient and healthy products are in important in the
average day-to-day life.
Consumers from the ages of 37 to 55 are also increasingly
concerned with nutrition. There is a large population of the
age range known as the baby boomers. Since many are
reaching an older age in life they are becoming more
concerned with increasing their longevity. This will continue
to affect the non-alcoholic beverage industry by increasing
the demand overall and in the healthier beverages.

MARKETING MIX OF COCA-COLA
Firstly, we will look at how Coca-Cola has used their
marketing mix. The marketing mix is divided up into 4 parts;
product, price, promotions and place.
The product (Coca-Cola soft drink) includes not just the
liquid inside but also the packaging. On the product-
service continuum we see that a soft drink provides little
service, apart from the convenience. Soft drinks satisfy
the need of thirst. However, people are always
different, some want more and others want less.
Therefore Coca-Cola has made allowances for that by
providing many sizes. We also have particular tastes,
and again they have provided several options. So,
although thirst is what is needed to be satisfied and that
is the core benefit, we are receiving other benefits in the
taste and size. Coca-Cola has developed several
different flavours and sizes as mentioned above, but
also several brands such as Sprite, Lift, Fanta and Diet
Coke which increase the product line length, thus
making full use of the market to maximize sales.
The product is convenient, that is - bought frequently,
immediately, and with a minimum of comparison and
buying effort.The appearance of the product is eye
catching with the bright red colour. It has a uniquely
Like any company who has successfully endured a
century of existence, Coca- Cola has had to remain
tremendously fluent with their pricing strategy. They
have had the privilege of a worthy competitor constantly
driving them to be smarter, faster, and better. 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."
states it simply. The relationship between Coca-Cola &
Pepsi is a healthy one that each corporation has learned
they are not just buying the beverage but also the image
that goes with it, therefore to have the price higher
reiterates the fact that the product is of a better quality
than the rest and that the consumer is not cheap. This
is known as value-based pricing and is used by many
other industries in attracting consumers.
In India, the average income of a rural worker is Rs.500
a month. Coca Cola launched a 200 ml bottle for just
Rs.5, an affordable amount on the pockets of the rural
Coca-Cola entered foreign markets in various ways. The
most common modes of entry are direct exporting,
licensing and franchising.
Besides beverages and their special syrups, Coca-Cola
also directly exports its merchandise to overseas
distributors and companies. Other than exporting, the
company markets internationally by licensing bottlers
around the world and supplying them with the syrup
needed to produce the product.
Chain Drug Stores

AAFES, NAVRESSO and DECA
In 2006, the Company began changing its delivery
method for its route delivery system. Historically, the
Company loaded its trucks at a warehouse with
products the route delivery employee would deliver. The
delivery employee was responsible for pulling the
required products off a side load truck at each customer
location to fill the customer's order. Coke began using a
new CooLift® delivery system in 2006 in a portion of the
Company's territory which involves pre-building orders
in the warehouse on a small pallet the delivery
employee can roll off a truck directly into the customer's
location. The CooLift® delivery system involves the use
of a rear loading truck rather than a conventional side
loading truck. Coke will continue to rollout this program
over the next several years since they expect such
significant savings and more efficient deliverys. This is a
huge investment for Coke.
The company works through independent bottlers of
Coke. They work in coordination with the Coke company
which produces the 'secret formula concentrate' and
The Coca-Cola Company only produces a syrup
concentrate, which it sells to various bottlers throughout
the world who hold Coca-Cola franchises for one or
more geographical areas. The bottlers produce the final
drink by mixing the syrup with filtered water and sugar
(or artificial sweeteners) and then carbonate it before
filling it into cans and bottles, which the bottlers then sell
and distribute to retail stores, vending machines,
restaurants and food service distributors.
The Coca-Cola Company owns minority shares in some
of its largest franchises, like Coca-Cola Enterprises,
Coca-Cola Amatil, Coca-Cola Hellenic Bottling
Company (CCHBC) and Coca-Cola FEMSA, but fully
independent bottlers produce almost half of the volume
sold in the world. Since independent bottlers add sugar
and sweeteners, the sweetness of the drink differs in
various parts of the world, to cater for local tastes.

PROMISE OF COKE
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.
Major segments are basically those people who take this
drink daily and those areas where the demands is higher
then the other areas. There are so many people who take
this drink daily and those people who take weekly and those
who take less often are always there as well. So, their basic
segments are those people who take this drink regularly.
And to get through with this difficulty there is need to
increase the level of per capita income of Pakistan because
it is much lesser than the rest of the countries.
Coke’s major competitor is “PEPSI” and there is no
hesitation to say this because every one knows that and all
the other cold drinks and water, coffee, tea are the

whether it is “Pepsi” or “coke”. They don’t actually
differentiate between these two brands in order to their
Consumers basically drink what they get.
They believe on “WHAT COLD THEY SOLD”
Consumer’s availability in brands is basically works like:
Consumers firstly decide that they are going to have a soft
drink. Then they compete brands with each other. Like they
compete Coke with Pepsi and Sprite with 7up and team .So
the major competitor of Coke is Pepsi.
When they motivate to any other brand or on Coke it’s in

But Coca Cola thinks in a different way, they believe that RC

1. Enhance competition moments
2. When people watch cricket
3. Through commercialization
4. Fun time
Though these strategies there could be better understanding
and better connection with the public. These are the “key
THREATS FROM COMPETITORS
Threats are well planned. Price is the major threat. When
price goes certain beyond the exact price whether come
down or go higher its effects the consumption of soft drink.
Because when the price go higher people go for the
substitute of “coke” i.e. Pepsi.
Over Night Profits
They could be over night profit that is for the number 1 brand

believe on this quote
“ Every thing is fare in love and war”.
Some profits stays for some time like “over night profits” and
some just come and go like “wind fall profits”. And they can
also get profit through different approaches.

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 tariffs.
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

consumption of coke increased on these occasions.

Our local marketing strategy enables Coke to listen to all the
voices around the world asking for beverages that span the

how they work and play, and how they relax and recharge.

good season for beverage industry in Pakistan.
So in winter they reduce their prices to maintain their sales
and profit. But normally they reduce the prices of their pet
