US: Corona cans get new image for summer
Crown Imports has launched its redesigned Corona Extra 12oz can in the US in an effort to stand out at retail during the summer months.
The company said yesterday (14 May), that the new design will feature the Corona Extra logo on a blue metallic background, with a matching blue pull tab. A white border along the top section of the can features the Corona griffin. The cans will be shipped throughout the US in six-pack trays starting this month.
"With summer on the way, the convenience of Corona in a can is sure to be a hit with consumers who appreciate having Corona on every occasion," said Crown Imports vice president of marketing for Corona Timm Amundson. "The new, blue can first hit store shelves in Mexico to rave reviews, and we're excited to now be able to fill coolers in the US with this newly-designed can."
Crown Imports is a joint venture between Grupo Modelo and Constellation Brands that imports, distributes and markets the Modelo portfolio and other beer brands across the US. The Modelo portfolio includes Corona Extra, Corona Light, Modelo Especial, Negra Modelo and Pacifico.
