Now their slogan is “Open Happiness” and they try to say that coca cola is for everyone and when you drink it you can open a window in happiness because coca cola makes you happy. “Coca-cola” is the most recognized word on the planet after “ok”. Coca cola’s major segments are basically those people who take this drink daily and those areas where the demands is higher than 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. Coca cola takes every customer a target and potential who is thirsty. All age groups are being targeted but the most potential is young generation 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. Their targeting is not based on gender but the results show that both genders like this product and use it. Coca cola serves its product using mass marketing technique, which obviously falls in undifferentiated marketing and undifferentiated marketing means no segmentation, but there are minor factors on which we can say that the coke......

...Financial Reporting [case study #2] September 26, 2013 Introduction As the most famous worldwide beverage reaches the last stage of the production line, it is shipped to an authorized bottler – a company which duty is to mix Coca-Cola’s syrup (or concentrates) with carbonated water and sugar before selling it in glass or tin containers. These bottlers can be categorized in three groups taking into account their dependence from The Coca-Cola Company (hereafter simply referred as Coca-Cola). First, there are the independently owned bottlers, which accounted for 34% of Coca-Cola’s production in 1998. Second, 11% of Coca-Cola’s bottlers are owned and controlled. And then, there are those in which Coca-Cola has invested but still has no control (55% in 1998). Anchor Bottlers is the name given to some of these bottlers in which Coca-Cola has minority interests. They account for the majority of Coca-Cola’s sales (43%), justifying their special importance for the company. They tend to be large, geographically disperse and financially burly. There were 10 companies under this label, by 1999. This rooting of Coca-Cola’s business operations aims to make the most of its subsidiaries, by exploiting their efficiency in producing, delivering and marketing Coca-Cola’s products. Nonetheless, the level of control and ownership is carefully studied based on these bottlers’ financial health, resources available at the time of the investment, and the need to share ownerships with other...

...The Coca-Cola Company Struggles with Ethical Crises 1. Delineate the ethical issues and dilemmas (as found in Chapter 3) the company faced. In 1999 Coca-Cola started to encounter its first taste of ethical issues and all the baggage that is associated with it. One of the first challenges that Coca-Cola was confronted with was an environmental problem in some of its foreign markets which lead to health issues. After drinking some Coca-Cola products, around thirty two children in Belgian became ill. Once Coca-Cola ascertained that problem was derived from an inferior batch of carbon dioxide. For whatever reasons, Coca-Cola assumed this wasn’t a real health hazard and procrastinated on mentioning the issue. Coca-Cola would pay a heavy price because once the media learned of the problem; they chastised them for their slow reaction. The negative news became damaging to the Coca-Cola reputation. To make matters worse for Coca-Cola, France claimed that in excess of a hundred people became ill after consuming their products and the country banned all the Coca-Cola products until they could prove that the problem was solved. In Poland, Coca-Cola introduced a new product called Bonaqua. Unfortunately the Bonaqua arrived in Poland infected with mold. In essence, Coca-Cola’s reputation became tarnished because of its slow response time and failure to address the health risk associated with each situation. Also in the spring of 1999 Coca-Cola was faced with a massive...

With revenue of 46,542 million, Coca Cola is one of the largest global beverage manufacturers and offers more than 3,500 beverages such as tea, water, juice, and energy drink. (24) Although Coca Cola is one of the world’s largest and most successful beverage manufactures, they face many challenges when operating overseas, including competition, political issues and economic issues. One important thing that companies should look is the competition. They need to know who the company is and do a SWOT analysis. SWOT analysis is strength, weakness, opportunities and threats. In Brazil, Coca Cola faces their biggest competition called tubainas. At first, Coca Cola did think the small company wouldn’t be a big competition until in the mid 1900’s. Coca Cola has done many strategies to slow down, but none was successful. Tubainas offered many flavors such as guarana, orange, tangerine and many more. Tubainas primarily distributed to poor neighborhoods. Another competition and probably the main Brazilian compeitor that Coca Cola face is AmBev. One advantage that AmBev have is their distribution in Brazil. The company owned numerous of bottling facilities, including guarana. By 2009, AmBev was the largest PepsiCola outside the U.S. Another advantage that AmBev had been they could lower down their price really low that Coca Cola couldn’t do. In...

...Coca – Cola’s history in brief: Coca-Cola is a carbonated soft drink sold in stores, restaurants, and vending machines in more than 200 countries. It is produced by The Coca-Cola Company of Atlanta, Georgia. Coca-Cola Enterprises, established in 1986, 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 company. 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. White head, 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 were for sale, the John T.Lupton franchises and BCI Holding Corporation's bottling holdings, to form Coca-Cola Enterprises Inc. The Company offered its stock to the public on November 21, 1986, at a split-adjusted price of $5.50 a share. On an annual basis, total unit case sales were 880,000 in 1986.

...Skimming involves goods being sold at higher prices so that fewer sales are needed to break even. By selling a product at a high price, sacrificing high sales to gain a high profit is therefore "skimming" the market. Skimming involves goods being sold at higher prices so that fewer sales are needed to break even. Selling a product at a high price and sacrificing high sales to gain a high profit is therefore "skimming" the market. Skimming is usually employed to reimburse the cost of investment of the original research into the product. It is commonly used in electronic markets when a new range, such as DVD players, are firstly dispatched into the market at a high price. This strategy is often used to target "early adopters" of a product or service. Early adopters generally have a relatively lower price-sensitivity and this can be attributed to their need for the product outweighing their need to economize, a greater understanding of the product's value, or simply having a higher disposable income. This strategy is employed only for a limited duration to recover most of the investment made to build the product. To gain further market share, a seller must use other pricing tactics such as economy or penetration. This method can have some setbacks as it could leave the product at a high price against the competition. A skimming strategy would generally be supported by the following conditions: The first thing that the Coca-Cola company must do is select the pricing...

From selling only nine glasses of drinks a day initially, after a successful stint of operation for over 120 years, the company currently produces more than 10 billion gallons of drink a day and sells its products across 200 countries worldwide. With more than 450 brands, the company is one of the largest beverage companies in the world keeping the language of refreshment universal across the globe.  The product comes into existence: It was1886 in New York Harbor when the construction of the Statue of Liberty was in progress, John Pemberton, a pharmacist in Atlanta, was intrigued by a fragrant caramel-coloured liquid. He carried it a few doors down to Jacobs' Pharmacy where the mixture was combined with carbonated water and sampled by customers who all agreed — that this new drink was something special. Jacobs' Pharmacy then put it on sale for five cents a glass. Later, Pemberton's bookkeeper, Frank Robinson, named the mixture Coca-Cola and wrote it out in a distinct script, the same way it is in use these days. According to the company: “Quality is more than what we taste or see or measure. It shows in our every action. We relentlessly strive to exceed the world's ever-changing expectations because keeping our quality promise in the marketplace is our...
