PepsiCo has lined up an addition to its juice portfolio in India.

The company yesterday (28 January) unveiled Tropicana Twister, which will go up against Coca-Cola's Minute Maid brand in the country. The juice will be available nationwide in two PET pack sizes. The 350ml variant will retail at INR22 (US$0.56), while the 1.2-litre offering will cost INR70.

"The juice and juices drinks is the fastest growing category and the new introduction is the next level in expanding our presence", said PepsiCo India CEO Sanjiv Chadha.

"There will be three different flavours of Tropicana Twister and more carbonated drinks introduced this year," Chadha added.

The company is hoping that the juice segment will account for around 50% of its Indian revenue within five years, the company added.
