CONCLUSION

We have concluded from this detailed report that despite the fact Coca Cola currently occupies the market leadership position overall and from the company s condition. It is expected that company will sustain its good position in future as well. In Pakistan as compared to Pepsi, Coca Cola has less number of consumers as Pepsi s market share in Pakistan is approximately 48% where as Coke market share about 42% and remaining shares of other drinks have the conclusion is that Coke is doing efforts to enhance factors such as relationship marketing, Innovation and technology. Especially in Pakistan to attain market leader position in this region. Coke is trying to expand its distribution channels in all over the Pakistan. That s why coke products are available in super markets as well as in small retail markets.

RECOMMENDATIONSAfter completing our project, we have come up with following recommendations for the Coca Cola beverages Pakistan Limited, which are as follows:

Coke can extend their portfolio in Pakistan by launching more brands. According to the survey conducted by International firms, Pakistani old age people like less sweet Cola drinks. So for this Coke should think about bringing new diet flavors in the market to fulfill the local needs. Marketing teams should try to increase the availability of Coke in Rural areas. Coca Cola should think about producing Canes locally as well because currently Coke canes are imported and sold at high prices. Coke should reduce the prices of new products like MINUTE MAID PULPY ORANGE.
