Volvic launches rhubarb flavour special edition
22 February, 2019

Bottled water brand Volvic has launched Touch of Fruit Sugar Free Rhubarb flavour in a special edition.

It is available exclusively in Sainsbury’s this month and nationwide from March in the UK and Ireland.

Volvic brand manager Maria-Tzina Leria commented: “We’re excited to bring Volvic Touch of Fruit Sugar Free Rhubarb to our customers. Inspired by traditional British flavours, we have worked hard to get the recipe right. The result is a refreshing tangy complementary flavour.

“Taste is essential, but it doesn’t mean it has to be high in sugar. We know more than ever that consumers are aware of their sugar intake and actively trying to reduce it where possible, seeking better options. People are looking to brands and manufacturers to help make health-conscious choices accessible, and our Touch of Fruit Sugar Free range offers this without compromising on taste.”

The launch will be supported by a 360-marketing activation from May and backed by an investment of £2.1m across the Touch of Fruit portfolio, and hero’ing the Rhubarb SKU.

Maria added: “Our 360 campaign lands in time for summer, a crucial time for retailers to grow their soft drinks sales, and we’re here to support them in making the most of the opportunity.”

The new product will be available in both 750ml (RRP £1.15) and 1.5L format (RRP £1).

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?
