  • Elsewhere in the world, soft drink companies are loosing business as people are getting more aware to the dangerous effects of consuming soft drinks and Coca cola recently acquired “Costa” coffee chain in a bid to diversify their business in case of foreseeable loss due to less consumption of soft drinks,, but they can invest more in Pakistan where people are stupid enough to destroy their health by drinking cola drinks.

    • Pakistan has one of the lowest per capita rates of soft drink consumption in the world. In 2012, it stood at 21L/capita/annum. Compare this to the worldwide average of 94 liters. These numbers are just for Coca Cola btw.

      Where the numbers are plummeting, they are doing so from ridiculous consumption amounts (403L > 401L, USA). So, it makes sense economically to invest in a country like Pakistan where soda consumption is yet to reach the saturation point. This has got nothing to do with Pakistani people being ‘stupid’.

      • LOL leo bhai got burned for commenting without knowledge, thats why say people say it is better to keep quiet if you do not know about something

  • I assume Costa coffee chain is coming here. My favourite and would love to see them ruining local brands who just looting ppl.
