The world’s biggest beverage maker says cans and bottles will prominently feature a “red disc” reminiscent of regular Coke, in addition to the colours already associated with each brand.

The Atlanta company says the one brand look will roll out in Mexico next month, then spread to other countries.

Coca-Cola Co. is trying to reinvigorate its business, which is facing intensifying competition and changing customer habits around the world. The efforts have included slashing costs, with the goal of investing the savings in marketing.
