In August, SodaStream will release 50 new flavors in five categories: fruits, zero-calorie, vitamin-infused plus line, flavored essence, and sparkling gourmet, all of which will be exclusive to SodaStream. This might seem attractive to boost sales, conversely it is also moving away from its original flavors and this new change might not be welcomed by its customers. However it is also believed that many of the Soda’s strategic repositioning came from trying to put itself as an alternative to Coke and Pepsi. With the new flavors, SodaStream is clearly aiming to create its unique selling brand and beat its competitors which will give it an edge in the soda industry.

The market for energy drinks, sports drinks and vitamin-enhanced beverages has changed a lot over the years and will continue to see changes well into the future. The underlying drivers of change include changes in growth rate (decrease) and innovation. Worldwide dollar sales of alternative beverages grew by more that 13% annually between the year 2005 and 2007, however, it slowed down to about 6% between 2007 and 2009. One might argue that the reason for this decline is the impact the ongoing recession has on the beverage industry. Beverage producers continue to maintain their optimism for the industry regarding future prospects that will be brought to fruition by innovation in brands, flavors, and formulations. These are the facets that they believe will support their premium pricing and volume increases.

Introduction, growth, maturity and decline are the four stages of a product’s life cycle.

Coca-Cola is shifting its product strategy to develop healthy beverages. “Minnick’s ambitions, if they hold, would utterly redefine Coca-Cola’s image as a purveyor of sugar-laden junk that you should’ve give your kids” (Carvens & Piercy, 2009). Entering a healthy-beverage market segment can potentially improve as well as expand Coca-Cola image. The new market segment will reel in even more consumers for the company, only
One of the main causes of child obesity is eating and drinking awfully. At schools this issue can be addressed by offering healthy drinks such as water, white milk, and natural fruit juice. At first, kids may not enjoy them as much, but in the future they will thank us. Nowadays, so many people eat and drink terribly and it's time that somebody helps with it.

According to Kim, Hyuksoo, Yangsun, Jungsun, and Ki-Young,(2016,201-210) most people understand that consumption of sodas is not good for their health. The rate of soda consumption has been decreasing over the years though younger adults have been consuming more sodas than the older adults. Questions have been posed if the science opposing soda has solid findings as those of smoking. Despite the fact that soda has the potential of causing diabetes type 2 relative to those who do not drink soda, is that supposed to mean that the determining factor is soda or is there a possibility of confounding factors that influence a person to drinking soda and diabetes? Reasons for declining the warning labels on soda outweigh those of posting the warning sign.

However, the brand can overcome this situation by increasing the number of low calorie products in its brand portfolio. It will need to add more healthy choices for its customers in its product portfolio.

Coca-Cola has been around for generations with the same iconic taste, logo and symbolism. Its brand has represented family and the memories of good times, celebrations and comfort of being with those we love. Unfortunately, the company has not made good marketing decisions in the recent past and has lost relevancy.

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.
