Serm Suk, the Thailand-based soft drinks producer, has agreed to sell the Est cola brand to ThaiBev subsidiary International Beverage Holdings for THB1.56bn (US$48m).

PepsiCo's cosying up with SodaStream tells us plenty about the fortunes of both companies - and could even be a pointer to the future.

Bottled water appears to have been the biggest victim of the economic downturn, particularly in Western Europe. Richard Corbett takes a look at the prospects for one of the larger water players in the region, Nestlé.

The Coca-Cola Co is to pay US$500m for a minority stake in Coca-Cola Amatil's Indonesian unit as it aims to reverse falling demand for its brands in the South-East Asian country.

Cott Corp has seen its net losses widen in its year-to-date, but the company has said its global volumes are continuing to stabilise.  

The 'will they, won't they?' debate over Coca-Cola Enterprises' interest in Coca-Cola Co's German bottling franchise dropped off the radar last year, but the likelihood of a transaction is set to bubble up again in the coming months. Indeed, both CCE's and Coca-Cola's most recent figures suggest that such a move is more probable now than at any previous time.

SodaStream International has confirmed it is shutting two of its facilities - including its controversial site in the West Bank  - as it targets efficiencies.
