Coca-Cola is Coke - level 2, A12
Coca-Cola is a soft drink. It is sold in shops, restaurants and pubs in more than 200 countries. Coca-Cola is an official name but people usually say only Coke. The name Coke also started to be an official name of Coca-Cola on March 27, 1944.
Coca-Cola was made in 1886 in the US and it was a medicine. The drink was good but not many people drank it. Then one American businessman bought the recipe for the drink and he made it very popular. He was very good at marketing and he knew how to sell the product.
These days, the Coca-Cola company makes only a concentrated drink and sells it to many other companies around the world. These companies make Coca-Cola from the concentrated drink. These companies have special contracts and nobody else can make Coke in their countries.
The recipe for Coca-Cola is very important and it was in a bank for many years. Many people know some parts of the recipe, but only two managers of the company know the whole recipe.
You can see a funny short film about Coca-Cola in the video.
