Sparkling drinks

Sparkling soft drinks are the foundation of our business. We offer a range of sparkling soft drinks, with and without sugar.

In addition to the world's most popular soft drink Coca‑Cola and its variants Coca‑Cola Zero Sugar and Diet Coke, we also manufacture and distribute Fanta, Sprite, Dr. Pepper and Lilt as well as local brand Tanora. Sparkling soft drinks form the core of our business and play a key part in refreshing our consumers at different occasions throughout the day.

Coca‑Cola has retained the number one position in Checkout's top 100 grocery brands for 15 years; an accolade that we're immensely proud of.

Sprite is the world's leading lemon-and-lime flavoured soft drink. Crisp and clean-tasting, Sprite has undergone refreshing changes with a move to a fully zero sugar recipe, in response to the demand for a refreshing drink that tastes great - but with zero calories.

Fanta Orange is the go-to for Irish consumers seeking refreshment with a light and refreshing orange flavour. Fanta Orange contains only natural flavours and no artificial colours.


More than 60% of our portfolio is made up

of drinks with less than 5g sugar per 100ml



Between 2016 - 2018 we reduced

sugar across our portfolio by 18%

Hero Zero

We are evolving our long-term business strategy to give people around the world the drinks they want. We know that our consumers want to manage their sugar intake, so we have been on a journey to diversify our portfolio and offer a drink for every occasion.

Within our sparkling portfolio, Fanta Orange and Fanta Lemon both moved to a lower sugar recipe to 4.5g per 100ml. Sprite moved to a full no sugar recipe in 2018.

We innovate our core sugar free ranges with exciting new flavours to encourage our consumers to try low sugar variants of our drinks, making low and no-sugar drinks the easy choice through our Hero Zero approach.
