What countries are the top exporters of soft drinks?

World Map depicting soft drink exportersThe myriad flavors of soft drinks available in market these days, are a hit with worldwide population. The tastes range from fruit flavors to even teriyaki flavored carbonated drinks. It might not be a healthy choice to opt for a Coca-Cola to quench your thirst after a meal, but people are succumbed to the bottled refreshments.

The origination can be traced back to the medieval Middle East, when fruit-flavored drinks were served widely. These drinks were sweetened by the inclusion of ingredients like sugar, syrup and honey. In the Tudor period, a sweet lemon flavored drink, with a tint of tartar cream was quite popular in England. Lemonade, a drink which is loved even today on a hot summer day, was one of the favorites back then as well. However, it was in the 18th century that Joseph Priestly, an English chemist, developed carbonated water. What came next was the ample varieties of drinks, and increased production around the world.

Today, soft drinks are manufactured in numerous countries across the globe. While some of the drinks are favorites of people around the world, for example Pepsi and Coca Cola, some are limited to suit the taste buds of people of particular regions. In year 2017, the global sale of soft drinks reached up to US $19.8 billion, with European continent having the highest export.

They are only a few names amid the soft-drink giant brands.

The drinks are called ‘soft’ in contrast to alcoholic drinks which are referred as ‘hard drinks’. People indulge in soft drinks even when they wish to add a twist to their liquor. Other names for soft drinks in different regions are: cold drink, fizzy drink, lolly water, pop, soda etc. Numerous health complications have been associated with high intake of these drinks, for example obesity, hypertension, type 2 diabetes and less nutritional level in body, which is why it is always advised to not drink them on a regular basis.
