Coca-Cola Expands into Latin American region with New Takeover

Posted on : 06 Mar, 2017

 

Beverages giant Coca-Cola along with its largest Latin American Bottler - Coca-Cola Femsa SAB has decided to purchase Unilever’s AdeS soy-based beverage business for about $575 million.

 

The new acquisition will significantly increase Coca-Cola’s footprint in South America – especially its non-soda drinks business.

 

AdeS has a large market share in the region that had a $284 million in sales in 2015. AdeS sells non-soda sells beverages that are a mix of fruit juice and soy across Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay, Bolivia, Chile and Colombia.

 

Once the takeover is completed, AdeS will be formally added to the non-carbonated beverage platforms that Coca-Cola Femsa and Coca-Cola share in its franchise territories, the Atlanta- and Mexico City-based companies.

 

Unilever is shedding assets in its embattled food business that has witnessed slowed growth in recent years due to a lack of innovation and declining demand. Earlier it sold off its brands such as Slim-Fast and Ragu. Unilever gains about two-thirds of the its food revenue from mature markets such as the U.S.

 

More about beverages and bottling market trends in South/Central America, Andean and Caribbean at CMT’s 5th SCAPET scheduled on 7-8 June, 2017 in Medellín, Colombia.
