The PepsiCo factory was opened in the Moscow region today. They will produce Aqua Minerale drinking water, Lipton Ice Tea, Adrenaline Rush power drinks, etc. As soon as the factory starts producing 2,1 billion liters a year, it will be considered the largest PepsiCo enterprise in Europe and the second largest enterprise of the company in the world.

Pepsi company came to Russia in July 1959 when the first American national exhibition was organized in Moscow. On that day Vice-President of the USA Richard Nixon who was in the head of the American delegation invited Nikita Khrushchev to have a glass of Pepsi and First Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union did so with pleasure. That time Pepsi slogan said: Be Sociable, Drink Pepsi. World newspapers typed photos of Mr. Khrushchev stressing: Khrushchev is learning to be sociable.

But the agreement on selling Pepsi-Cola in the USSR was concluded 10 years later. Instead the USA agreed to import Russian vodka Stolichnaya. In 1979 Pepsi Cola was widely available in Moscow. By the way, water that forms the basis of all the drinks at the factory gets pured in the hall.

In 1992 the first Pepsi production line was opened in Saint-Petersburg increasing production volume twice. In 1992 Coca-Cola company announced their plans to construct a plant that will be engaged in Pepsin manufacturing. By that time the main competitor of Coca-Cola named PepsiCo company was an active member of the Russian market. Today the latter owns 9 factories in Russia.

    So they first throw the empty bad bottles, then filled bad bottles that did not sustain the high temp. and later they throw bad labeled filled bottles.

    Pepsi used to kill Coke with their national taste tests. People almost always liked Pepsi better. I don’t drink much soda, but I think Pepsi is better.
    That’s when Coke came out with “New Coke”, and got clobbered in the market. After that, they went back to “Coke Classic”, and eventually dropped the “classic” part, and it’s just plain old “Coke” again.
    And people STILL prefer Pepsi over Coke. But just don’t mess with Coke.
