But quite often you can buy exactly the same things in ALDI for a much lower price, which is why it out-competes so many places.

And even in Cuba you can buy it imported from Mexico or Jamaica in the underground market or luxury hotels.

Just in North Korea we can't find Coca Cola. So here is your winner...

Aldi really has limited selection of items compared to Walmart, but they are very cheap. Walmart failed in Germany, because it is too expensive to maintain that huge places with broad selections when there are 3 Aldi, Lidl and other discount supermarkets around that sell all the basic stuffs for much less. The quality at Aldi is usually quite okay though.

Would be more than happy to have some 24/7 Walmarts in Germany

Coca Cola is pretty much the largest, most omnipresent brand in the world.

Props to the marketing people, because Pepsi have a much better product

Unilever is another.

I've most certainly seen BP in every European country I've been to, I also work for the Oil Industry and have bought for BP in Iraq and BP in Angola only yesterday, seems pretty 'global' to me.

Good for them. On BP's website, it says it's represented in 72 countries, now the thread asks which company is present in most countries, there are over 190 countries, you can do the math.

I find it hard to believe that a major company would give you any kind of responsibility
