Building on a successful expansion in 2019, Tropicana has announced the introduction of a new flavour to its popular Essentials line-up. ‘Energise’ offers shoppers a new delicious option, meeting the continued consumer demand for a juice with health and wellness benefits.
A tropical flavour with key ingredients being Pineapple, Passion Fruit, Banana and Ginseng, new flavour ‘Energise’ contains added magnesium to help fight tiredness, one of the main health and wellness benefits that shoppers are looking for. The new flavour has already proved popular with consumers, boasting an impressive 90% purchase intent in early testing.
The release of Energise is part of a wider invigoration of the Essentials line-up. Exciting, modernised artwork has been introduced to attract younger shoppers to functional juices.
Caroline Wilding, Marketing Manager for Tropicana at PepsiCo, comments: “Only one third of British adults currently achieves their five portions of fruit & veg a day. Juice drinkers are 70% more likely to achieve their five a day target and so, as the UK’s number one chilled juice brand, we can play a role in closing that gap.
“Since the launch of Tropicana Essentials, the range has continued to bring incremental shoppers to the category. Functional juice is the fastest growing segment within chilled fruit juice and Tropicana Essentials has established itself as a beacon brand.”, adds Wilding.
