Vikrama Raja, the president of the Sangam, said as quoted “Their initial response is encouraging, but they only want some more time to work out on the boycott plan. I am hopeful that in the evening we would have them also commit a date.” He added that this protest might even spread to other states later, with traders associations in Kerala and Puducherry considering a similar boycott.

“The resolution was taken to wean away the youth from the MNCs soft drinks which have killed the domestic companies. These foreign companies were also using up scarce water resources,” alleged K Mohan, the secretary of the Sangam.

Mohan also added that this should not be allowed in Tamil Nadu at a time when the state was facing the unprecedented drought. Moreover, the Indian soft drink brands were also cheaper and healthier than the foreign brands. There are also fresh juices that even doctors recommend, the trader’s body office bearer told to Hindustan Times, the news site.

The dealer’s body has its record of complaints against the major cola brands, which included arm-twisting ordinary shopkeepers, who were allegedly found it difficult to comply with the diktats.

Mohan said, on reflecting the sentiments of several shop owners that ” many shopkeepers do not earn enough even to pay the electricity bills and used to keep the drinks chilled. The trade body said that the dynamic response of the youth during the Jallikattu protests had emboldened them to take off the soft-drink majors.” We have now to see how effective the boycott is. It is not a call for the ban, but it is more like an appeal,” Mohan said.

PepsiCo & Coca-Cola

A private restaurant has kept the notice that states the boycott of Pepsi and Coke in all their branches

Given that control of PepsiCo & Coca-Cola about 80 per cent of the Rs 1,400 crore soft drinks market in the state, even the partial success of the boycott could help revive the market for local brands. It includes Kalimark (Madurai), Triple Seven Cola (Thanjavur), Torino, J-drink (Pollachi), Sri Mapillai Vinayagar (Dindigul), and Ruby (Madurai)

S. Karthigaikani, the General Manager of the 118-year-old Sri Mappillai Vinayagar Soda Company, said as quoted “We are expecting a 100 percent increase in our sales if the boycott is implemented.”
