History of the brand
Originally an outreach of Pepsi
created in Iran in 1954, Zam Zam became its own corporation following the 1979 Islamic Revolution
Following the 2002 boycott of Coca-Cola by Saudi Arabia, Zam Zam was unofficially dubbed the soft drink of the Hajj.
It is also sold in Europe and in some parts of Asia.
The product's name is a reference to the Well of Zamzam in Mecca, that is one of the stops on the Islamic pilgrimage of the Hajj. However, it is not made with water from the well.
