Canada Dry Logo – Canada Dry is a brand of soft drinks marketed by Dr Pepper / Seven Up, a unit of Cadbury-Schweppes. Canada Dry is best known for its ginger ale, but also makes several sodas and mixes. Although Canada Dry is named after its country of origin, Canada, is produced in many countries and is very popular in the United States.
John J. McLaughlin was the eldest son of Robert McLaughlin, wagon maker, located in Oshawa, Ontario, who was one of the largest business in the British Empire. His brother, Robert Samuel “Colonel Sam” McLaughlin, took control of the firm father and redirected to the business of the car (which would result in General Motors Canada in 1916). However, John also achieved considerable success in their own business.
In 1890, pharmacist John J. Canadian McLaughlin opened a factory of carbonated water in Toronto. In 1904, created Canada Dry Pale Ginger Ale. When McLaughlin began shipping his product to New York in 1919, became so popular that it opened a plant in Manhattan shortly. Due to its popularity, PD Saylor and Associates bought the business of McLaughlin. He was born Canada Dry Ginger Ale, Inc. In 1907 the drink was named Supplier of the Royal Governor General of Canada, so you change the label on a map of Canada with the mark up to the present with the old logo on a shield with crown.
During Prohibition markets a brand to mix it reaches popularity, as its flavor helps to mask the taste of homemade liquor. In the 30’s, Canada Dry expanded its business worldwide, and 50 onwards, the company introduced a larger number of products. Today, Canada Dry is owned by Cadbury-Schweppes, but the bottles still carry the original brand reasons. The identification with Canada has produced fluctuations in the consumer market. For example, the brand was boycotted in several places in the U.S. due to the abstention of Canada in the 2003 Iraq invasion. Manufacturers of Texas and the owners British complained because the boycott was wrong to not be owned or be manufactured in Canada.
