Argentine-Dutch consortium Disco Ahold is planning to launch its Bell's soft-drink range in Peru.

The consortium's own-brand manager, Alejandro Sierra, said the company would be introducing three brands: Cola Bell's, Amarilla (Yellow) Bell's and Lima Limón (Lemon) Bell's.

The drinks will be available in 2.25-liter family size and 625-millileter personal size. The brands will be initially available only in larger stores and supermarkets.

"We are very pleased that Bell's is entering the soft-drinks market because we are consolidating our position as a supplier of quality products at reasonable prices," he said.
