Coke learnt with experience that price was a strategic weapon in an emerging market like
India. An increase in value added tax in 1996 had taken the price of the 300ml bottle beyond
the reach of many Indian customers. In 2000, CCI conducted a yearlong experiment in
coastal Andhra Pradesh by introducing a 200ml bottle at Rs 7. The volumes went up by 30%
demonstrating the importance of consumer affordability. So the 200ml pack priced at Rs 5
was rolled out countrywide in January 2003. The advertising Campaign highlighted the
affordability and Indian image.

To make it affordable, Coke introduced Kinley in 200ml pouches for Re. 1 in selected places
in Ahmadabad and 200ml water cups in Maharashtra, priced at Rs 3 per cup in testing
marketing exercise conducted in mid – 2002. In 2002 Kinley with 35% market share had
become the leader in the retail PDW segment and was contributing 20% of CCI’s revenues.
