LAHORE World famous soft drink Coca Cola is going to celebrate its 125 anniversary across the country, says a press release. Since its birth at a soda fountain in Atlanta, Georgia on May 8, 1886, iconic brand Coca Cola has been a catalyst for social interaction and inspired innovation. American dispensing chemist John Pemberton invented the recipe for Coca-Cola. Earlier, the sweet carbonated drink was used only for medical purposes but within span of 125 years simple Coke has grown into a multi-billion-dollar business and there is hardly a place in the world that does not have a Coca-Cola vending machine. It is claimed that Coca-Cola is the second most recognised word in the world after ok, says Phil Mooney, director Coca-Cola.
