And one of this changes is in the taste and preferences from the consumers. These changes greatly affect all big and small companies, including the soft drink companies.

2 Culture The population growth today, implies that the soft drink industry could make many sales hence creating a bigger market share.

Therefore for it to continuously meet the demands from its consumers it must adhere to the changing taste and preference of its consumers.
