Coca-Cola, Aurora in talks about making cannabis-infused drinks: report

: Coca-Cola is 'closely watching' the cannabis space — and is reportedly eyeing a deal with one of Canada’s biggest producers (KO)

The world's largest beverage company may be the next industry giant to jump into the cannabis drinks business. "The space is quickly evolving".

However, he declined to specifically comment on Aurora Cannabis Inc, and stressed that "no decisions have been made at this time".

The company reportedly is in talks with Canada's Aurora Cannabis to develop the drinks.

Wells Fargo analyst Bonnie Herzog called the news "an exciting potential development" as it would take Coke into another fast-growing healthier segment following last month's $5.1 billion deal for Costa Coffee and expand cannabis-infused drinks in the area of functional wellness products.

Booth added that the entry of major beverage companies like Coca-Cola will have a big impact on the burgeoning marijuana sector. Coca-Cola shares were marginally higher in a USA market struggling against expectations of another round of Chinese trade tariffs.

Other beverage makers have had similar discussions recently. Heineken NV's Lagunitas craft-brewing label has even launched a brand specialising in non-alcoholic drinks infused with THC, marijuana's active ingredient.

In a clarification, Coca-Cola stated on Monday, "We have no interest in marijuana or cannabis".

There is no guarantee that talks between the companies will be successful or that a commercial agreement would be made public, BNN Bloomberg reported.
