PepsiCo is hoping Mountain Dew will make a breakthrough in Thailand

PepsiCo is rolling out its Mountain Dew brand in Thailand, backed by a multi-media marketing campaign.

The CSD brand is being launched in “traditional” and “modern” off-trade channels in PET bottles and in cans, the company announced earlier this week. The launch will be marked with a TV ad, which debuted last week.

A print, digital, out-of-home, in-store, and point-of-purchase campaign will also run, under the tagline "Dare to Do". Nation-wide roadshows are also planned to market the drink, PepsiCo said.

“We are confident that the launch of this powerful brand will expand the flavored beverages segment in the country,” said  Laddawan Lertwasin, senior marketing manager for beverages at Pepsi-Cola (Thai) Trading Co.

Earlier this year, the soft drinks and  snacks group launched a Mountain Dew variant in the US, Kickstart, which comes in two flavours.
