Coca-Cola GB has calmed speculation that it is set to relaunch its Minute Maid juice brand next year.

The company responded today (14 December) to press reports claiming that Minute Maid will get a fresh push around Easter.

"The original story was based on speculation," a spokesperson for the company told just-drinks. "We are always looking at our products in terms of innovation and variations, but at this point we do not have any new developments to announce."

The report, which appeared in Marketing magazine, cited industry insiders claiming that the relaunch will focus the brand on a "100% juice" positioning in a complete design overhaul.
