What have condoms got to do with Coke? Melinda Gates of Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation made a case a few years back that humanitarian agencies could use the Coca-Cola global logistics model to distribute medicines and sanitation (condoms included) to remote areas that need health care access.
“Coke is everywhere!” she said. A remote Congolese village may lack roads, public health system, or electricity, but a corner store will pop a bottle of Coke for you.
Such is Coca-Cola’s reach worldwide, it sells about 1.8 billion servings daily. To put that in perspective, that’s like two out of eight persons in the world drinking Coke every day, says FinancesOnline.com study
Soft drinks are not the only things that are selling unbelievably hot. In the infographic on the right, we list 10 of the best-selling products in the world ever, but instead of just giving you cold, abstract numbers, we put their incredible sales against something that you can grasp easily. For instance, what weighs as much as an aircraft carrier? Surprise - the combined weight of Lay’s potato chips sold in the US every year. Or, this–if you drive from NYC to LA back and forth for 48 times, you just covered the entire length of all Toyota Corollas sold and put together bumper to bumper, the study found out. - TradeArabia News Service
