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 more than 50 leading brands under a common vision, business strategy and management structure and solidifying the company’s position as the third-largest refreshment beverage business in North America.
