The US soft drinks firm has added two years to its pre-existing deal, it said late last week. Through the agreement, DPSG is the 'official soft drink' of the Baylor University's Baylor Bears in Texas, and DPSG has exclusive vending and pouring rights for its products on campus, along with certain advertising provisions.

The agreement will now run until August 2015.
