The maker of cola drinks which also sells juice and water brands said the company may have a separate distribution model for the new product line.

Beverage company Coca-Cola ready to come up with its nutrition products such as electrolyte hydration drinks that will be sold over-the-counter at pharmacies.

“So far we have been very active in the refreshment space; we now want to be a serious player in nutrition,” said company president T Krishnakumar.

“We are getting into serious play. We decided we need to have serious products as well to take the company’s journey forward,” Krishnakumar said.

Coca-Cola, which has now had three-quarters of growth, will scale up “to keep relevance in India,” he said.

Separately, the company announced the launch of Aquarius Glucocharge, a ready-to-drink glucose beverage with fruit juice, on Thursday. It said another brand Minute Maid Vitingo — will be scaled up to address micronutrient deficiency and malnutrition.

On consumption prospects, Krishnakumar said, “We see tailwinds of growth and the outlook is positive.”
