UK: Britvic jucies up its kid's drink portfolio
Juice Up, the latest soft juice drink to hit the supermarket shelves this week has been described by leading soft drinks company Britvic as "an entirely new concept in soft drinks."Specifically targetted at children and health conscious mums, Juice Up is a smooth blended drink containing six essential vitamins, 8% milk and more fruit than some other leading brands and, say Britvic, one glass provides more calcium than half a glass of milk.Already proving to be a resounding success in research and trials among children and parents, Juice Up contains no artificial colours and no added sugar and is the culmination of a two year development project by Britvic as part of its £20m market management programme, Right Choice."Kids want an aspirational drink and mothers want the best for their kids and there's no need for these requirements to be in conflict," says Britvic's marketing director Andrew Marsden. "We have never underestimated the power of kids as consumers and we know how to give them the image they want. Juice Up is a truly innovative product. It will be the next phenomenon in the soft drinks category and will become the preferred brand choice for kids and mums."A major launch is planned in early 2001 into the convenience and independent channels, but Juice Up is currently available in three flavours, Smooth Orange, Cool Berry and Sunshine Tropical in 1.3 litre and 200ml six packs at Tesco, Sainsbury and Safeway and retails at £1.35 and £1.95 respectively.Sarah Diston
