Coca-Cola Enterprises (CCE) has said Sweden will be the second European country to roll out the stevia-sweetened Coca-Cola Life.

The low-calorie brand, first launched in Argentina and Chile last year, is to go on sale in the country in September, CCE's Swedish unit said this week. The roll-out will coincide with the UK launch, which was announced earlier this month.

CCE, a US-based bottler that operates mainly in Europe, said Coca-Cola Life is the first new brand Coca-Cola to launch in Sweden since Coke Zero in 2007.

It will be available in 33cl cans and 0.5- and 1.5-litre PET bottles. 

A 33cl can of Coca-Cola Life contains 89 calories and is sweetened with a blend of sugar and natural sweetener stevia. It is Coca-Cola's first cola to use stevia.
