A soft drink is a beverage that often includes water, a sweetener, and a flavour that is either artificial or natural. Sugar, high-fructose corn syrup, fruit juice, a sugar replacement, or a combination of these may all be used as sweeteners. Additionally, caffeine, colorings, preservatives, and/or other additives may be found in soft drinks.
Soft drinks are distinguished from “hard” alcoholic beverages by the term “soft.” Small amounts of alcohol may be present in soft drinks, but in many nations and regions, the alcohol concentration must be less than 0.5% of the total volume of the drink to be deemed non-alcoholic. Lemon-lime beverages, orange soda, cola, grape soda, ginger ale, and root beer are examples of soft drink varieties.

The distribution model was impacted by the retailing change of COVID-19. The mainstay of Indian distribution, face-to-face selling, was prohibited since retailers did not want sales assistants to look about their stores.
