Domino’s Pizza Enterprises says customer testing prompted it to replace Coca-Cola Amatil as its beverages supplier in Australia. Pepsi/Schweppes won the tender to supply soft drinks and bottled water. Michael Simotas of Deutsche Bank says Domino’s may be seeking to offset its move to start paying penalty rates, as Pepsi drinks tend to cost less than those of CCA. Woolworths recently advised that its supermarkets will not stock CCA’s latest sugar-free Coca-Cola product, on the grounds that consumers already have sufficient choice.
