KO Sparkling Beverage Volume Down 1% in North America
Also down 2% concentrate sales in Europe; they don't break out the Sparkling Volume amount. When CCE reports gives a better indication in terms of what Sodastream is doing in Europe since it only includes packages drinks and not concentrate.
Have to admit KO is kicking but in Asia and Africa... For the time being...
I made a mistake Concentrate sales were flat when you include the less days in q. Again CCE will be a better indication since they only sell packaged products and not concentrate. Also they don't break out the Sparkling number for this region but for all other regions they provide the sparkling number.
CCE is probably the best indicator of Coke's performance in Europe but it's still not a very good indicator.
CCE only does business in 6 countries in Europe. CCE has no presence in many European countries including major ones such as Germany, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Poland, and Ireland. And CCE is not the only Coke bottler doing business in the 6 countries where they have a presence.
