2. COCA COLA :-
The Coca-Cola Company is the world’s largest beverage company. We own or license and market more
than 500 nonalcoholic beverage brands, primarily sparkling beverages but also a variety of still beverages
such as waters, enhanced waters, juices and juice drinks, ready-to-drink teas and coffees, and energy and
sports drinks. We own and market four of the world’s top five nonalcoholic sparkling beverage brands:
Coca-Cola, Diet Coke, Fanta and Sprite. Finished beverage products bearing our trademarks, sold in the
United States since 1886, are now sold in more than 200 countries. We make our branded beverage
products available to consumers throughout the world through our network of Company-owned or -
controlled bottling and distribution operations as well as independent bottling partners, distributors,
wholesalers and retailers — the world’s largest beverage distribution system. Beverages bearing
trademarks owned by or licensed to us account for 1.9 billion of the approximately 57 billion beverage
servings of all types consumed worldwide every day.
We believe our success depends on our ability to connect with consumers by providing them with a wide
variety of options to meet their desires, needs and lifestyles. Our success further depends on the ability of
our people to execute effectively, every day. Our goal is to use our Company’s assets — our brands,
financial strength, unrivaled distribution system, global reach, and the talent and strong commitment of our
management and associates — to become more competitive and to accelerate growth in a manner that
creates value for our shareowners. We were incorporated in September 1919 under the laws of the State of
Delaware and succeeded to the business of a Georgia corporation with the same name that had been
organized in 1892.
On October 2, 2010, we acquired the former North America business of Coca-Cola Enterprises Inc.
(‘‘CCE’’), one of our major bottlers, consisting of CCE’s production, sales and distribution operations in
the United States, Canada, the British Virgin Islands, the United States Virgin Islands and the Cayman
Islands, and a substantial majority of CCE’s corporate segment. CCE shareowners other than the Company
exchanged their CCE common stock for common stock in a new entity named Coca-Cola Enterprises, Inc.
(‘‘New CCE’’), which, after the closing of the transaction, continued to hold the European operations that
had been held by CCE prior to the acquisition. The Company does not have any ownership interest in New
CCE. Upon completion of
the CCE transaction, we combined the management of the acquired North America business with the
management of our existing foodservice business; Minute Maid and Odwalla juice businesses; North
America supply chain operations; and Company-owned bottling operations in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania,
into a unified bottling and customer service organization called Coca-Cola Refreshments (‘‘CCR’’). In
addition, we reshaped our remaining Coca-Cola North America operations into an organization that
primarily provides franchise leadership and consumer marketing and innovation for the North American
market. As a result of the transaction and related reorganization, our North American businesses operate as
aligned and agile organizations with distinct capabilities, responsibilities and strengths.

Deepika Padukone & Farhan Akhtar Becomes brand ambassador of Coca-

Bollywood stars not only compete with each other in films but they are in race to get big brands
endorsements for him / her is flourishing now a days. Most admired actresses in 2013 was none other than
Deepika Padukone and for that one of the leading cola company Coca Cola signs Deepika Padukone as
new face for the company for India operation.
Bollywood star Deepika Padukone soon shall become the third celebrity on the face of the Earth to endorse
PepsiCo and Coca-Cola both. The other two celebrities are the perfectionist Amir Khan and the first bahu
of Bollywood Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Long-legged Deeps is the next brand ambassador of Coca-Cola,
reported Times of India on Monday. T he Cola company aims to revive its image as it ‘continues to lag
behind its sister brand T hums Up and rival Pepsi’ in the soft drink market in India, the English daily read.
Padukone reportedly is to be paid a little less than 4 crore annually for endorsing Coca-Cola. As per the
report, Deeps shall team up with her Kartik Calling Kartik co-star Farhan Akhtar to promote the soft drink.
T he biggest rival of Coca-Cola, PepsiCo India, is endorsed by Deepika’s old love flame Ranbir Kapoor.

appeared in a same advertisement to promote PepsiCo.
However, as the duo’s love has worn off, seemingly Deepika has decided to move on with her choice of

T he topic is pretty prickly and itchy! Let us not pry too much, for the two have proven their
professionalism by appearing in one of the biggest Bollywood baggers ‘Y eh Jawani Hai Deewani’ post

Pepsi is a hundred-year-old brand loved by over 200 million people worldwide. The largest single
selling soft drink brand in India, Pepsi is ubiquitous on just about every social occasion. Youngistaan
loves it. 200 million people worldwide love it. But what has made Pepsi the single largest selling soft
drink brand in India is actually a formula concocted a century ago in a faraway continent.
1886, the US. Caleb Bradman, a man with a plan formulated a blockbuster of a digestive drink and
decided to call it Brad’s drink. The potion was to become Pepsi Cola in 1898, and eventually, Pepsi in
1903. Since its inception, Pepsi has always been at the forefront of the beverage industry and has come
up with revolutionary concepts such as Diet Pepsi, 2l bottles, recyclable plastic cola bottles and the
enviable My Can.
7UP, the refreshing clear drink with a natural lemon and lime flavour was created in 1929. 7UP was
launched in India in 1990 and its international mascot Fido Dido was used for advertising in 1992 to
position the brand as a cool drink for youngsters. Fido became an instant hit with his trendy look, laid-
back attitude and unconventional take on life. During the brand’s early years in India, 7UP gained
market leader status in the lemon lime category by being one of the first to be nationally distributed
besides being marketed as a healthier alternative to other soft drinks.
Aquafina was first launched in the US in 1994. With its unique purification system and great taste,
Aquafina soon became the bestselling brand in the country.
In India, Aquafina’s journey began with its launch in Bombay in 1999 and it was rolled out nationally
by 2000. On the strength of its brand appeal and distribution, Aquafina has become one of India’s
leading brands of bottled water in a relatively short span of time.
Dukes legacy Founded in 1889 by Dinshwaji Pandole, Duke’s is a brand that is seeped in Mumbai’s
rich history. It was in many ways the country’s first aerated soft drink and a pioneer on many fronts.
Many a generations have grown up enjoying the refreshing taste of Duke’s. Thus when PepsiCo India
brought this brand in 1994, it also inherited Duke’s rich Mumbai legacy. While the Lemonade flavour
has refreshed the consumers ever since, in September 2011 some more flavors of Duke’s , the delicious
Raspberry and the sugary sweet Ice-cream soda were relaunched. And with it was launched Duke’s
Masala Soda, with its strong local flavor that has the consumers wanting for more..
Gatorade, the World’s No.1 Sports Drink, was born on the field of sport! Gatorade was launched in
India in 2004 and over the years, has become an integral part of the kitbags of many leading
sportspersons. Gatorade has been tried and endorsed in India by the top sports stars and professionals,
including Sachin Tendulkar, Irfan Pathan, Md. Kaif, S. Sreesanth Ramji Srinivasan and Javagal
Mirinda has always stood for great bold taste that unleashes uninhibited fun. Taking the promise
forward, Mirinda launched two new exciting flavors- Orange Mango and Orange Masala which appeal
to the Indian palette. While Orange Mango is the perfect mix of the sweet candy taste of mango flavor
and the tanginess of original Mirinda Orange; Orange Masala tickles the taste buds with a hint of fruit
masala flavor added to Mirinda Orange. The launch was supported by a robust 360-degree campaign
including outdoor, online and a consumer engagement programmed to bring alive the taste experience.
Mountain Dew :-
The main formula of Mountain Dew was invented in Virginia. The drink was named and first marketed
in Johnson City, Tennessee and Knoxville, Tennessee in 1948.
In India, Mountain Dew set the soft drink category ablaze in 2003 with its iconic launch campaign
‘Cheetah Bhi Peeta Hai’.
Nimbooz is a great tasting product. It has capitalized on the existing familiarity with and high
consumption of unpackaged / home-made nimbu pani. It has remained true to its authentic Indian
Identity by using the traditional Matka (Earthen Pot) and Squeezer in the manufacturing process. The
product is available in three convenient formats, 350ml PET, 200ml RGB and 500ml PET at the
remarkable price points of Rs 18, Rs 10 and Rs 25 respectively.
Slice was launched in India in 1993 as a refreshing mango drink and quickly went on to become a
leading player in the category.
In 2008, Slice was relaunched with a winning product formulation that made consumers fall in love
with its taste. With new pack graphics and clutter-breaking advertising, Slice has built a powerful

beverage brands. Tropicana is the #1 brand in packaged 100% Juice* in the world in 2011 in off-trade
