product news: Britvic adds sparkling Drench variants

02 September, 2016

Britvic is following-up the relaunch of its juice drinks brand, Drench, earlier this year, with new sparkling variants to extend the range into the carbonated segment.

The new flavour combinations, Raspberry & Cranberry and Grape & Elderflower, will be available in a 330ml can format.

The launch will be supported with a marketing campaign including outdoor media highlighting that Drench Sparkling contains no artificial sweeteners, colours or flavourings.

Kevin McNair, GB marketing director, Britvic Soft Drinks, explained: “We know that the typical adult consumer (30+) is leaving the soft drinks category in favour of tea, coffee and water, but still wants something tasty and refreshing, so there is certainly a need for a relevant grown-up solution to keep these drinkers in the category. Extending the range and providing new flavours and formats, under a recognised brand, will ensure our customers can meet their consumers’ needs and drive sales of adult soft drinks in store.”

The new 330ml cans of Drench Sparkling in Raspberry & Cranberry and Grape & Elderflower flavours are available as a wholesale exclusive at an introductory case price of £5.99, before being rolled out nationally in October at an MRSP of 79p per can.

When a major car manufacturer like Ford predicts that sales of its electrified cars will outnumber petrol and diesel models by 2022, does that ring alarm bells about the possible speed of change for forecourts?
