Britvic has added a third variant to its Robinsons cordial brand’s ready-to-drink line in the company’s home market.

Blackberry & Blueberry joins Raspberry & Apple and Peach & Mango in the range, all of which are available in single 50cl bottles as well as 12- and 24-bottle packs in the UK off-premise. The no-added-sugar extension was relaunched last year.

The brand owner, which is also PepsiCo’s soft drinks bottler in the UK, cited its own research as showing that 55% of retailers in the UK have added new soft drinks launches and flavours to their offerings to boost on-the-go sales since lockdown restrictions have eased”

Earlier this year, Britvic posted a 16.5% lift in sales from the three months to the end of December. The group said at the time it expected a performance boost in the UK in the coming months as COVID-related restrictions eased.
