However. during CocaCola and Pepsi’s attempts to broaden their global consumer bases both companies encountered several obstructions on their pursuits of conquering the Indian soft drink market. Today India is one of the most sought after countries for foreign investments because of their continually growing market opportunities.Page 44 of 179 Since the early 1990’s Coca-Cola Corporation and PepsiCo have been combating on what is known as the “Beverage Battlefield” in India. INTIAL DIFFICULTIES .

In 2003. the All-India Anti-Imperialist Forum called a boycott on goods from America and India. POLITICAL CHALLENGES Other political challenges hindered the success of Coca-Cola and Pepsi in India as well. Parle invested a great deal into their leading brand. While the war was beyond control for these two companies.Page 45 of 179 From a historical standpoint. Thums Up. Indian has protested American companies for the war and specifically targeted Coca-Cola and Pepsi products. but also could have created advertisement campaigns to address the situation. Coca-Cola and Pepsi were facing obstructions even before entering the market in the late 1980’s. Parle. After this time many of the political and legal obstacles facing Coca-Cola and Pepsi were lessened. became the market leader. Coca Cola’s past venture in India had ended on bad terms with the Indian government when they refused to offer up their trade secrets. During the absence of foreign investment in the soft drink industry in India a local company. . and played a dominant role in the soft drink industry until the liberalization of the Indian economy in 1991. management perhaps could have done more to not only attempt to predict the backlash from Indian consumers due to the war. when the United States and Britain invaded Iraq.

Page 46 of 179 While political and legal factors produced problems for Coca-Cola and Pepsi. Both companies could’ve made the mistake of using American celebrities or already made American commercials to advertise their products in India. . athletes. but instead made the right move by making advertisements to specifically target their foreign market. and celebrities to endorse their products. The companies also produced television and print advertisements that linked important Indian themes to their products by “Building a connect using the relevant local idioms” Coca-Cola and Pepsi both utilized popular Indian sporting events. both Coca-Cola and Pepsi did many things to prevent that situation from happening. Both companies heavily participated in the cultural festival of Navratri in western India to promote their products and create brand awareness in a culturally traditional setting.

Coca-Cola and Pepsi created bottles ranging in size from 200 ml to 500 ml to adapt to cultural needs and increase their sales. many consumers also increased the frequency in which they were purchasing the soft drinks. To compete competitively in the market.Page 47 of 179 PRICING POLICY FOR INDIAN MARKET Coca-Cola and Pepsi also made the right moves by adapting to cultural barriers in India. Because India is a country where people are known to live on very little a day. Pepsi reduced their prices as well. . the idea of getting people to spend what little they have on a soft drink could be quite a stretch. This move allowed both companies to offer products that were affordable to the target market in India but also encouraged more Indians to consume Pepsi and Coca-Cola products. However. Both companies also created smaller sized bottles to allow for lower prices for Indian consumers. Coca-Cola India went with an aggressive pricing policy and reduced the price of their soft drinks in 2003 from 15% to 25% nationwide. By offering smaller sized bottles. One such barrier was the affordability of products for Indians.

Coke indirectly created employment for another 125. 750 crore) between September 2002 and March 2003.
