Mini cans a margin booster for Coca-Cola and PepsiCo

Coca-Cola (NYSE:KO) and PepsiCo (NYSE:PEP) plan to offer more mini-can products as a way to stoke volume growth.

The category has done well as some consumers replace drinking diet versions of their favorite soda with a smaller-sized bottle or can.

A higher mix of mini-can sales is a margin-booster for the companies with the per-ounce revenue almost double for mini cans than regular cans.
