The food and drink industry must now respond to increased consumer health awareness, sophistication, experimentation and interest in new flavours and textures, with innovative new products. Cadbury Schweppes recently announced that they want to split up their beverages and confectionery businesses in order to focus more on their food sector. Hence, the time might be right to think about expanding into markets with growth opportunities. A new strategy starts with a vision, and should include as key elements considerations about sustainability, distinctiveness, and competitive advantages. The vision for Cadbury Schweppes is derived from its shifting environment in which they operate. The idea is to form an alliance were Cadbury Schweppes is able to learn from its partners and consequently maintain its position as a global leader in the 21st century. 2 Aims and objectives The aim of this report is to provide a detailed overview about the potential of a joint venture between Cadbury Schweppes, the Ülker Group, and the Sekem Group.

The final section provides the business proposal with analysis of strategy, operational structure, and value chain innovation. It should be pointed out that only the most significant factors of several frameworks are examined. Further details as well as the theory are described in the appendices. Moreover, the appendices should support and confirm the statements given in this work and assist the reader to get a clearer picture about the potential of the proposed business idea.
