28 March 2019: Coca-Cola Great Britain will expand its portfolio with the launch of Coca-Cola Energy, the first energy drink released under the Coca-Cola brand.
With a great Coca-Cola taste and feeling that people already know and love, Coca-Cola Energy features caffeine from naturally-derived sources, guarana extracts, B vitamins and no taurine.
It will be available in 250ml cans and in two variants - with and without sugar. Coca-Cola Energy will launch in the UK from late April.
Commenting on the launch of Coca-Cola Energy, Javier Meza, Global Chief Marketing Officer, Sparkling Business said: “Coca-Cola Energy includes ingredients from naturally-derived sources and a delicious and refreshing taste of Coca-Cola. We kept these two qualities at the heart of how we developed the recipe and are proud to offer it under the Coca-Cola brand, inviting people to try a new and different energy drink that is designed to complement upbeat and busy lives.”
Jon Woods, General Manager, Coca-Cola Great Britain and Ireland commented: “Our strategy is to offer people a wide range of drinks to meet different lifestyles and occasions and Coca-Cola Energy is the latest example of that. We’re launching Coca-Cola Energy with and without sugar and we’ll continue to expand and diversify our range of products to offer British consumers a wider choice of drinks.”
The new drink features a distinct visual identity and will be supported by an integrated marketing campaign.
The new drink is aimed at young adults (18-35) and will be promoted in line with The Coca-Cola Company’s responsible marketing guidelines.
