Product Coca Cola offers a huge amount of choice to potential customers, with a variety of drinks to suit the needs of individuals. CCA uses product differentiation to tailor its beverages to meet the needs of consumers. For example, this has led to the introduction of new soft drink flavours such a Diet Coke with Lemon, Vanilla Coke and Cherry Coke. The introduction of new products has also differentiated CCA's product range from competitors as none of which offer a comprehensive range of flavour choices. Price The soft drink industry is highly competitive and only a relatively small number of businesses account for soft drink sales. In this environment CCA must take into account competitor's prices when setting their own price. The strong brand of CCA soft drinks often allows the company to charge a slightly higher price than its competitors for similar products. Promotion Advertising is a key element in any promotional campaign. While advertisements featuring CCA's products are visible in many forms of media such a television, radio and billboards CCA has little control over these campaigns are these are the sole responsibility of The Coca Cola Company (TCCC).
