History

Cott began as a Canadian company importing bottled and canned carbonated beverages into Quebecmarker from the United States in 1952 and afterwards began to bottle and can beverages in the city of Laval, Québec. From 1976 to 1991, Cott expanded its distribution throughout Canada and into the United States and Europe. During the 1970s, labels of its products were printed with the punning slogan "It's Cott to be good". Vess Beverage assets and division, Vess Specialty Packaging Company, was purchased in 1994.

From 1992 to 1996, Cott was headed by Heather Reisman, founder of Indigo Books & Music.

In October 2000, Concord Beverages, with its Vintage brand seltzer water, is acquired from Honickman Group.In April 2007, Cott was said to be considering a bid for Cadbury Schweppes soft drinks business.In 2007, in conjunction with the premier of the The Simpsons Movie, Cott partnered with 7-Eleven to produce "Buzz Cola", a fictional soda found in the The Simpsons television series. In late February 2008, Cott was served notice by its key customer, Wal-Mart, that shelf space for some soft drinks made by Cott for the world's largest retailer would be cut back. Nearly a year later in January 2009, Wal-Mart informed Cott it was terminating a 10-year-old pact under which Cott had been supplying the company with store-branded soft drinks.
