The Coca-Cola Co is to roll out a frozen carbonated version of Fanta across Europe in partnership with Slush Puppie.

Fanta Frozen will initially be available in Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Sweden and Denmark with other countries to follow. Coca-Cola said the brand has already had success in North America and Australia and that it is “especially suited” to Europe, where it will be available in cinemas and other leisure outlets.

Corinne Thibaut, Coca-Cola's international director for cinema and leisure, said: “Fanta is a huge brand for Coca-Cola, and due the success of its frozen iterations in North America and Australia it made sense for us to drive the brand in this format in Europe, and reach new audiences with the Fanta brand.” 

Coca-Cola has signed a deal to be one of the official sponsors of next year's Rugby World Cup, continuing a 20-year presence at the tournament.
