(Reuters) - Soft drink bottler Coca Cola HBC AG reported a 4.4 percent rise in first-quarter net sales revenue on Thursday, driven by strong demand in its largest emerging market segment.

The company, which sells Coca-Cola drinks in 28 countries mostly in Europe, said sales rose to 1.41 billion euros (£1.2 billion) in the quarter, from 1.35 billion euros a year earlier.
