Ahead of the start of the summer silly season, the latest set of company results started trickling in last week, led by the soft drinks producers of our industry. Keeping us busy with the fizzy was the likes of The Coca-Cola Co and PepsiCo. While their differing numbers suggest that one is performing better than the other, the future is set to throw up the same obstacles for both.
Elsewhere in the drinks world last week, Remy Cointreau posted a healthy set of sales figures for its first quarter, Pernod Ricard toasted the arrival into its portfolio of an ultra premium Tequila through a JV with Tequila Avion, and Coopers Brewery secured the production of Sapporo's namesake beer brand in Australia.
Features-wise, Ben Cooper considered the future for drinkers in Turkey, now that Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has secured another term, Michelle Russell considered the future for Brazil's sugar producers as global prices continue their inexorable rise, and Richard Woodard considered the future for Diageo's latest celebrity tie-up for Qream and what it means to market to women.
This week sees the release of our Global Market Review of non-Scotch Whiskies with IWSR. For an overview of the report, click here.
