The Coca-Cola Co has launched a not-from-concentrate version of its Minute Maid juice drink across the US.

From this month, Coca-Cola will begin offering four varieties of Minute Maid Pure Squeezed orange juice, the company confirmed to just-drinks yesterday (23 August). The drinks will be available in 59oz bottles instead of the half-gallon carton that the Minute Maid brand is typically sold in.

Varieties include Minute Maid Pure Squeezed No Pulp 100% Orange Juice, Pure Squeezed No Pulp 100% Orange Juice with Calcium and Vitamin D, Pure Squeezed Some Pulp 100% Orange Juice and Pure Squeezed Light Orange Juice Beverage with Calcium and Vitamin D.

A spokesperson for Coca-Cola told just-drinks that the motivation behind the launch is to target people who want pure juice but who prefer Minute Maid to other brands. Minute Maid Pure Squeezed will also be more affordable than Coca-Cola's other pure juice brand, Simply Orange, "to provide more choice in the not-from-concentrate segment", the spokesperson said.

Coca-Cola declined to give any pricing information for Minute Maid Pure Squeezed.
