Company highlights sparkling soft drinks performance, release of Coca-Cola Energy
July 23, 2019
The Coca-Cola Co., Atlanta, reported strong operating results in the second quarter of 2019, driven by consumer-centric innovation, solid core brand performance and improved execution in the marketplace, it says.
Increased data proliferation allows vendors to personalize the vending experience for consumers and — from an operational standpoint — track which products are most popular where and respond accordingly.
“I am very pleased with our strong revenue growth and improved operating performance in the first quarter,” said Frank Harrison, chairman and chief executive officer of Coca-Cola Consolidated, in a statement.
Coca-Cola North America, a division of Atlanta-based The Coca-Cola Co., is launching a digital marketplace this fall that connects its foodservice customers to pre-vetted, industry-best restaurant technologies with competitive pricing, it says. The marketplace of solutions for front of house, back of house and outside of house is powered by Omnivore, a universal point-of-sale connectivity platform that offers seamless integration into restaurants' point-of-sale (POS) systems.

The new “mini” package size kicks off a year of innovation for Coca-Cola in Canada, which will introduce more than 20 new beverages across the company’s portfolio, including low- and no-calorie drinks, bold flavors and soda water beverages, the company says.
While reported net revenues declined because of refranchising and currency headwinds, the company delivered organic revenue (non-GAAP) growth within its long-term target for the sixth consecutive quarter, while also gaining value share globally, it said.
