Innocent plans to launch a range of water products in the UK functional drinks market this month.

Speaking to just-drinks today (10 May), the company said that it has invested GBP1m (US$2m) in the water brand, known as 'This Water'. The new line, re-branded last month from Juicy Water is a mixture of fruit juice and spring water. The drinks will be available in mango and passion fruit, blackcurrant, lemon and lime, and cranberry and raspberry flavours.

When asked the difference between the previous brand and the new rebranded line, a spokesperson for the company said: "There is absolutely no difference whatsoever."

The company also said that it plans to extend the range in future to encompass vitamin waters, botanical waters and natural sports drinks.

Last week, Innocent confirmed that its original line of smoothie drinks will be available in McDonald's Happy Meals in fast food outlets across the north-east and Yorkshire.
