Allthese, national and international, competitors affect the running ofthe company since they are struggling to put the company out ofbusiness. Even though the business still has the competition sinceits consumers have the freedom of choice and preference for thebeverage brand, they want to purchase(Browne, 2001).For instance, the majority of the sportsmen buy Lucozade since it ismade to give more energy as compared to Pepsi and Coca-cola or theywill go for Pepsi because it has an equivalent of coca cola while theRed Bull brand is believed to give more energy just like the Lucozadebrand.
