Coca-Cola is the world’s biggest-selling grocery brand, with a total sales value of more than $50 billion, according to the Billion Dollar Brands 2015 report, produced by ESM: The European Supermarket Magazinein association with Euromonitor International.

Coca-Cola’s closest rival, Pepsi, ranks second in the report, with Nestlé’s Nescafé brand ranking third. P&G’s Pampers is the highest-ranked non-food brand, in fourth position.

Rounding off the top ten are Asian noodle brand Master Kong (5th), Chinese dairy giant Yili (6th), P&G’s Tide/Ariel detergent brand (7th), Coca-Cola’s Sprite (8th), Chinese dairy brand Mengniu (9th) and PepsiCo brand Lay’s/Walkers (10th).

“The Billion Dollar Brands 2015 report is a snapshot of the brands lining the shopping trolleys of supermarkets right around the world – a truly global barometer of what consumers are purchasing,” says Stephen Wynne-Jones, editor of ESM: The European Supermarket Magazine.

“While those at the top are household names, the growing influence of the Asian shopper on the global marketplace accounts for many regional products ranking in the top ten.”
