Canada Dry Mott's and Dr Pepper Snapple Group was established in 2008 following the spinoff of Cadbury Schweppes Americas Beverages (CSAB) from Cadbury Schweppes plc. CSAB had formed in 2003 by bringing together Cadbury Schweppes' four North American beverages businesses, Dr Pepper/Seven Up Inc., Snapple Beverage Group, Mott's LLP, and Bebidas Mexico, unifying these businesses under a common vision, strategy and management structure and cementing the company's position as the third-largest refreshment beverage business in North America.
In 2006, the company reached another milestone with the acquisition of
Dr Pepper/Seven-Up Bottling Group, the largest independent bottler in the United States.
These moves, and several subsequent bottling business acquisitions, have made
Dr Pepper Snapple Group what it is today: an integrated beverage business with nearly $6 billion in annual revenues, approximately 20,000 employees, 24 manufacturing facilities and more than 200 distribution centers across North America.
