Other credits should also be given to Coca-Cola like an increase in diabetes and other diseases.

In order to understand the reasons why the industry has been hugely profitable despite the ‘Cola Wars’, an examination of the CSD industry with Porter’s five forces analysis will be conducted. As market leaders, the analysis will be centred on both Coke and Pepsi (hereafter “C&P”).

1. Do you think Coca-Cola will surpass the scandals around the world like it did in the past?
If you had an opportunity to solve world hunger you would do it, right? Well a company named Monsanto has set a goal to achieve the mighty task. They look to achieve this goal by creating special seeds that are resistant to pesticides, also which use less water and energy to produce. There are also said to be some big disadvantages to using Monsanto’s methods to producing their seeds that have not yet been researched deeply enough. This raises many questions to people around the world. Many countries who will not even accept seeds from the company over fear of the crops they produce will cause health and environmental detriments. So my question is, can Monsanto solve some of the world’s problems or should we be looking at other better
In a globally competitive environment, Coca-Cola engaged in questionable conduct such as channel stuffing, falsifying marketing research, anti-trust issues or racial discrimination for a few reasons (Ferrell, Fraedrich, & Ferrell, 2013). Coca-Cola used channel stuffing as a short term tactic to artificially report an increase in sales, which could entice more shareholders to invest into their company (Edwards, 2015). But in the long run, it becomes similar to a Ponzi scheme. The distributor returns the unsold cases of soft drinks to Coca-Cola, in which Coca-Cola would add them as sales returns on their accounting ledger. The shareholders see an increase of Coca-Cola shipments and an increase of sales revenues on the financial reports. Channel stuffing draws a lot of attention from executives and investors as profits decrease and sales increase (Edwards, 2015).
When a child is born, the parents hope that they have a better, and longer life then they did. Yet for the first time in modern US history, “Today’s children are expected to have shorter life expectancies than there parents” (Life Expectancy of U.S. Children Cut Short by Obesity). The somber realization is the result of a several decade long epidemic which threatens to poison future generations and prevent them from living long prosperous lives. The obesity rate in the United States has sky rocketed in the last ten years to a staggering 34.9% of all adults (L. Ogden, Prevalence of Obesity in the United States, 2011-2012). This number is only expected to increase with the current generation of children, as diseases such as type two diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and coronary heart disease increase in prevalence (Center of Disease Control and Prevention). The culprit, is what Americans eat. Almost all the food that is accessible by the average American is processed, and therefore contains a ridiculous amount of artificial ingredients such as high fructose corn syrup (Hojjat 86). Many companies such as Coca Cola have been a contributing to the current state of the United states poor health, by advertising to younger ages and relating there product to creating a sense of happiness.
Did you at least get paid for sneak-advertising Coca Cola? I don't understand how this disgusting company is still allowed to advertizise at big sport events all over the world, when it should have been long since closed down by US government or UN for the systematic killing of union leaders in Columbia. However, the Rubel has to be kept rolling and the economy has to grow exponentially till all eternity. Who cares that our natural recources are depletable? Cosequently this will never happen.

The Coca-Cola Company is a leader in the beverage industry with a reputable brand and strong global presence. According to the Coca-Cola Company’s mission statement and 2020 vision, some of its goals include:
In an industry dominated by two heavyweight contenders, Coke and Pepsi, in fact, between 1996 and 2004 per capita consumption of carbonated soft drinks (CSD) remained between 52 to 54 gallons per year. Consumption grew by an average of 3% per year over the next three decades. Fueling this growth were the increasing availability of CSD, the introduction of diet and flavored varieties, and brand extensions. There is couple of reasons why the industry is so profitable such as market share, availability and diversity and brand name and world class marketing.
PepsiCo. Incorporated and The Coca-Cola Company are the two largest and oldest archrivals in the carbonated soft drink (CSD) industry. Coca-Cola was invented and first marketed in 1886, followed by Pepsi Cola in 1898. Coca-Cola was named after the coca leaves and kola nuts John Pemberton used to make it, and Pepsi Cola after the beneficial effects its creator, Caleb Bradham, claimed it had on dyspepsia. The rivalry between the soda giants, also known as the "Cola Wars", began in the 1960’s when Coca-Cola's dominance was being increasingly challenged by Pepsi Cola. The competitive environment between the rivals was intense and well-publicized, forcing both companies to continuously establish and
