Coca-Cola is the world's favourite soft drink, and people have been enjoying it since 1886. Invented by Dr John S Pemberton, it first went on sale at Jacob's Pharmacy in Atlanta, Georgia. It was actually Dr Pemberton's bookkeeper, Frank M Robinson, who invented the now world-famous red-and-white logo with its special Spencerian script.
Coca‑Cola is now the most recognised trademark in the world and is even thought to be the most widely understood word in the world after ‘OK’.
Since its introduction to the island of Ireland in 1939, Coca-Cola remains the country’s best selling retail brand.
Over the years, as consumer taste, preference and lifestyles have changed, Coca-Cola has innovated to develop and launch new brands, with distinct and separate identities. These brands have provided people with a greater choice in terms of flavour, calories and caffeine content, whilst still providing the taste they enjoy.
