The initiative is launched by Hindustan Coca-Cola, the company-owned bottling entity of the Atlanta-based beverage giant reports Times of India.
“The objective of this initiative is to take advantage of the rapid growth of e-commerce and provide consumers an added avenue of choosing and ordering our beverages. This is a step which is in keeping with Coca-Cola India’s efforts of being within easy reach of the consumers. Our entire suite of products become available to the consumer to choose from and a significant drop size provides us with a viable model for door-to-door delivery,” said T Krishnakumar, CEO, Hindustan Coca-Cola Beverages.”
Presently, consumer electronics, apparel and lifestyle products are the biggest selling in the Indian online space; however, there has been a surge in grocery e-tailing over the past year.
