Coca-Cola is 133 years YOUNG


Kathmandu, May 8 . Today marks the 133rd anniversary of Coca-Cola, whose history began on 8th of May, 1886 when the curiosity of an Atlanta pharmacist, Dr. John S. Pemberton, led him to create a distinctive tasting soft drink. This drink has been refreshing and uplifting people across the globe since, and the drink that was at once “Delicious and Refreshing” continues to be a part of people’s every day moments.

Dr. Pemberton’s partner and bookkeeper, Frank M. Robinson, is credited with naming the beverage “Coca‑Cola” as well as designing the trademarked, distinct script, still used today. While it was Dr. Pemberton who created the drink, it was Mr. Asa G. Candler, who grew the business, spreading it to all across the USA.

Coca-Cola has been refreshing Nepal since 1979 with a range of brands for all occasions; fit with the local taste and passion of the culture. Since its inception, Coca-Cola has supported various activities relating to football, music and food. The company aspires to bring innovative ideas and provide unique exposure and opportunities for consumers in Nepal.

In 2013, Coca-Cola brought the FIFA World Cup Trophy to Nepal, in partnership with FIFA and ANFA, which for the first time allowed thousands of football fans in Nepal to see the real solid-gold trophy in person. With Coca-Cola Mo:Motsav, Coca-Cola has enabled consumers to enjoy their favorite combination of Coke & Momo with their favorite celebrities and national football team players.

Marking the special day, the Coca-Cola in Nepal team takes the opportunity to thank its valued consumers and customers for their association over the years.
