Coca Cola the world’s largest selling soft drink company in the world has taken a bright step forward in the Indian market with the completion of their Rain water harvesting project in Kolkata along with the SOS Children’s Villages of India. The project was made at the SOS Children’s Villages at Bidhan Nagar in Kolkata and is dedicated to the children of the village and the local community.

The Evolution of Coca Cola in the Indian market took place in the year 1993, in the same year it also took over the ownership of the nation’s biggest soft drink brand and bottling network. Ever since its evolution in India, it has made significant investments to consolidate its position in the country’s market like new production plants, waste water treatment, marketing channels and distribution systems.

The soft drink giant has given the Indian consumers an opportunity to get a taste of the world class soft drink to fill up their refreshment and hydration.

This social project was a step forward in the area of sustainable water resources for the children and to increase the nationwide water conservation.
