In an announcement, the organization said lessening their brands by 50% will assist them with focus on its most gainful offerings and new offerings like Topo Chico hard seltzer and AHA flavored sparkling water.
In a comment to investors, CEO James Quincey said they had concluded the list of which brands will remain, however, he would not give particulars.
