Following the invasion of Ukraine, well-known brands such as Coca-Cola, Fanta, and Sprite exited the Russian market, prompting a new soft drink launch. According to the Moscow Times, Russian beverage manufacturer Ochakovo has claimed that worldwide soda names would be replaced with new beverages such as Cool-Cola, Fancy, and Street. Although it is expected that Coca-Cola goods would continue to be sold in stores, prices have risen by nearly 200 percent since the ban.
CoolCola offers the “iconic taste of Cola,” according to Ochakovo’s website. According to insiders, the new brand’s orange-flavored ‘luxury’ and lemon-lime’street’ bottles are designed to look like Fanta and Sprite.
This isn’t the only company hoping to profit from Coca-withdrawal Cola’s from the Russian market. Grink Cola has grabbed the hearts of Russia’s soda fans, thanks to companies like Slavda Group, situated in Russia’s Far East. On the other hand, a manufacturer in the northern Russian district of Komi called Syktyvkarpivo has launched its own soda called Komi Cola.
