With a red-and-white logo recognized by more than 94 percent of the world’s population, Coca-Cola is the definition of a global brand. It sells its signature soft drink, as well as several related sub-brands, like Diet Coke and Coke Zero, in more than 200 markets around the world. The brand began life as a patent medicine invented and marketed by drugstore owner John Pemberton. During the 20th century it built its brand through many innovative advertising campaigns (one of which helped cement the popular conception of Santa Claus in the United States), eventually driving its parent to become the world’s largest beverage company. Every day, consumers drink more than 1.9 billion servings of Coca-Cola products. Coke has always taken great care to protect its identity, holding its retailers to high standards, including monitoring everything from the shape of its bottles to its signature font and color scheme. Coke also acquired Costa, a popular coffee chain in the UK, to diversify its portfolio and gain direct access to consumers.
