You will prepare and submit a term paper on Actuality Of Healthy Sodas Making In Modern World. Your paper should be a minimum of 1000 words in length. A new advertising battle is brewing between soft beverage giants Coca Cola and PepsiCo (Martin, 1). After the cola wars, the diet cola wars, and the mid-calorie cola wars, a vitamin cola war is ahead. Diet sodas will be dueling to entice consumers with the promise of a little healthy extra in their glass.
Coca Cola plans to introduce a new brand of diet Coke with vitamins and minerals. The company is preparing for a spring or mid-summer launch of the Diet Coke Plus. PepsiCo is also ready to shoot. Their new Diet Pepsi Max will be infused with ginseng and more caffeine than the well-known, regular Diet Pepsi. The company is also preparing a vitamin counter-attack – Tava, which is expected to hit the shelves in June.
Both diet sodas respond to a growing market niche. The health and wellness industry boom created a new category of “functional beverages”. They promise a wide range of benefits for the consumers – they claim to invigorate, energize, stimulate, refresh and beautify, among everything else.
Right now this immensely growing market segment is dominated by small players such as Red Bull, Mountain Dew, Vitamin Water, and green tea drinks, while Coke and Pepsi are staying behind the healthy scene. The author of the article claims that the $ 68 billion soda business has dropped for the first time in 2005 (Martin, 1). A steady downfall was estimated even in diet Coke consumption. As sales of full-sugar soda decline, PepsiCo and Coca Cola are racing to add low-calories and non-carbonated drinks to their product mix. In contrast, sales of mineral water, energy drinks, and green tea drinks are growing in double-digits. Confused by the fact that Coca-Cola Classic may not continue to make life taste good for a long time, Coca Cola marketing teams are exploring different opportunities in response to the poor performance of soda drinks.
