PepsiCo is set to follow the launch of Pepsi Dry in Japan last year with the roll-out of Pepsi Black in the country next month.

The new variant contains 50% less sugar than regular Pepsi, and is enhanced with lemon flavour, to cater for adult tastes, according to the company.

“Reduced sugar is a new genre we have created in the cola market,” said a spokesperson for Suntory, Japan’s only distributor of PepsiCo's beverage range. “We have received positive feedback from the market since the launch of Dry last year.”
