Coca-Cola: Water, water everywhere... - Introduction


When we hear the name Coca-Cola we might not instantly think of water. However Coca-Cola Amatil's brand Mount Franklin is the number-one brand of bottled water in Australia. In a market crowded with hundreds of competitors, Mount Franklin and the Pump range of products account for more than one-quarter of all bottled water sales in Australia.

Coca-Cola Amatil (CCA) is the local Coca-Cola licensee, manufacturer and bottler operating in Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Indonesia and Papua New Guinea. Coca-Cola is continually striving for growth in this Pacific region. A core objective of the company is to become the supplier of choice for carbonated and non-carbonated beverages. The company has also set a goal to expand in the health and wellbeing segment, or market category.

The non-alcoholic drink market consists of different product categories, the main ones being carbonated beverages (both sugared and sugar-free), water, sports drinks, energy drinks, juices and fruit drinks.

Over the past two decades the growth in the market share in Australia of diet drinks, bottled waters, sports drinks, energy and lifestyle drinks and other sugar-free, nonalcoholic drinks has been steadily increasing. In particular sales of bottled water have increased markedly over the last ten years while the proportional share of carbonated sugared drinks has been falling.

In Australia in 2006, CCA enjoyed a 58 percent market share of carbonated beverages through its key brands, Coke, Fanta and Sprite, a 27 percent market share in the water category via Mount Franklin and Pump and a 57 percent market share in the Sports category, primarily throughPowerade.
