Comparatively, Coca- Cola wanted Glaceau, the creator of Vitamin Water, and achieved the acquisition in 2007 for $4.2 billion. Coca-Cola was very strategic, as a result the company’s product lineup in the non-carbonated beverage classification. Coca-Cola’s best purchase has been Vitamin Water, and is currently available in more than 26 countries.

(Quelch & Jocz, 2012) The reason why is because Coca-Cola works in tailoring their beverage locally to accommodate the local taste.
However, Coca-Cola is not the sort of company to live on its past glories; instead it looks to the future as a challenge and constantly seeks new markets and ways of increasing its market share in areas where it currently has a strong presence.
