On November 2, one day after the conclusion of its contract with Pepsi, Serm Suk launched its own soda—Est—and did so in high style. The company does not break out figures for Thailand. It was reported that Serm Suk would immediately launch its own carbonated soft-drink brand on November 1.

About Suntory Suntory Group was founded in 1899 and has become a multi-national major beverage company with a broad range of business including wellness, food, restaurants and flowers. A Tingyi spokesman declined to comment.
With its large inventory of glass bottles and its well-maintained network for exchanging them, Serm Suk has glommed onto an advantage absent from the business model of its partner-cum-rival. The company has at its command five bottling plants, 1,200 trucks and over 200,00 sales outlets.

A syrupy brown cola, Est tastes somewhat like Pepsi, mixed with root beer and tempered with a gargantuan helping of sugar. Under the terms of the agreement, Suntory will acquire 51 percent stake in PepsiCo's Vietnam beverage business, while PepsiCo will be a 49 percent shareholder.

One plant at the Amata City Industrial Estate in Rayong province, bought from San Miguel in February for Bt2 billion, would serve as a bottling plant of Pepsi-Cola drinks, as its bottling contract with Serm Suk Plc, its partner for nearly 60 years, ends at the end of October.
Pepsi declined to comment on why its non-compete clause expired immediately upon conclusion of the Serm Suk deal. Forward-looking statements inherently involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those predicted in such forward-looking statements. Pepsi has similar non-compete clauses with bottlers in other markets such as China, but the decision backfired in Thailand. Suntory is committed to the Vietnam business together with PepsiCo, our partner of more than 30 years, which has already established a leading position in Vietnam. Pepsi uses its own distribution for snacks in Thailand, so that business is unaffected.
