INTRODUCTION

Distribution is concerned with the organizing system of transportation, storage and communication, so that goods and services will be readily available to consumers.

Distribution is a very important element of the marketing mix because of the utilities creates for consumers. Distributing creates three types of utility. Time utility is created when distribution channels makes products available for sale, when the consumer wants to purchase them. Place utility is created when good and services are available at a government location. Ownership or possession utility is created when the title of the product passes from the producer or intermediary to purchase, possession utility can also result when transaction in which the title does not pass    to the purchase such as in the case of retailer car.

          Kolter P. (1983:334) describes channels of distribution as the sets of firms and individuals that take title or assist in transferring title to a particular goods and service as it moves from the producers to the consumers.

          Olakunori & Ejionueme (1998:93) say it is  the path taken by products and the title in their onward movement from producers to consumers or industrial uses, they maintain that in moving products from  producers ton consumers.

          The production of soft drink started in Nigeria when the Nigerian mineral water limited established by a foreign concern in 1933, since then many companies has established various brands in soft drinks firms. Among the companies in the early rush to make impact in the soft drink industry work Pepsi – Cola company with its Nigeria Breweries Limited which bottled tango and sundower brands of soft drink. We had also the seven up bottling company ( 7 up) which made considerable impact with its  7 up and Pepsi brand of soft drinks.

          Some other soft drinks company existed under a heavy and aggressive competition within the industry. The Nigeria civil war contributed greatly to the extinction of most of the soft drink company in existence before the war.

          Out of the major leading soft drink firms in the country today, seven up bottling company Plc has surfaced by establishing a   distributive it’s products.
