Introducing the Coca-Cola Company

The Coca-Cola Company is the world’s largest beverage company with almost 500 brands ranging from the actual Coca-Cola® to products such as Sprite®, Fanta®, POWERADE®, Minute Maid®, and many, many more.

The product was originally born in Atlanta, Georgia, in 1886 where Dr. John Smith Pemberton, a local pharmacist, produced a caramel-colored liquid, and when it was done, carried a jug of the new product down the street to Jacob’s pharmacy. Here, the mixture was combined with carbonated water and sampled by customers who all agreed – this new drink was something special. So Jacob’s pharmacy put it on sale and sold it for 5 cents a glass.

Later Dr. Pemberton’s partner and bookkeeper Frank Robinson invented the name and the lettering which has been written the same way ever since.

Today, the Coca-Cola Company has been in business for 125 years, employs 139,600 people, and sells 1.6 billion beverages each day in more than 200 countries.

  1. Hey there,
    this is a nice and short introduction to the history of the Coca Cola concern but in my opinion there is missing something. You could probably talk about the main goals of the company or publish some news in order to attract some attention.

      Hey LL,
      this is just the introduction. It’s not my actual post. I’m still working on it. Thanks though for your comment 😉
