Fanta: Brand overview

Fanta is a popular non-alcoholic beverage of German origin, now produced by the American corporation Coca-Cola (which acquired the rights to it in the 1960s). The product itself appeared in Germany in the 1940s. Its current name came about accidentally when the head of the company asked employees to use their imagination to find a suitable name. Since “Fanta” means “fantasy” in German, manager Joe Knipp exclaimed: “Fanta!”.
