Coca-Cola's profits rose 13 per cent in the fourth quarter to 1.87 billion dollars, the world's biggest soft drink maker said Tuesday, propelled by growth in emerging markets and North America.
There was strong worldwide demand for the company's juices, waters and sodas - except in Europe, where Coca-Cola saw declining revenue and lower sales volume.
Revenue grew 3.8 per cent in the fourth-quarter to 11.46 billion dollars.
Coca-Cola made 9 billion dollars in profits in 2012, up 5 per cent over 2011.
