Currently its CSD and NANC portfolio also includes the brands H2OH! in the flavored water market and Lipton Iced Tea in the ready-to-drink tea market, which are also sold under license from PepsiCo. The company's PepsiCo franchise agreement for Brazil expires in 2017, and thereafter, will be automatically renewed for additional ten-year terms absent two years’ prior notice by either party of its intent not to renew the contract following the expiration of the initial or any subsequent term. In addition, it has franchise agreements for Pepsi products in Argentina, Bolivia, Uruguay, Peru and the Dominican Republic.
