Notes to editors:

The Glacéau vitaminwater® Jessie J on-pack promotion will run for four weeks from 1st April.

Glacéau vitaminwater® was acquired by The Coca-Cola Company in May 2007 and launched in GB in May 2008.  Glacéau vitaminwater® is specially formulated to help people on-the-go get more of the vitamins and hydration they need to get through the day.

It all started in 1996, the year Ebay® first appeared; Prince Charles and Diana, Princess of Wales, got divorced; England hosted Euro '96 and Germany won. Meanwhile, in New York City, an adventurer, gadabout and humble genius named J. Darius Bikoff was being pummeled by the one-two punch of raging thirst. Heading to a yoga class, Bikoff was feeling run-down and gobbled a vitamin C wafer and chased it with a swig of water. The combination of flavour and vitamins inspired Bikoff to develop and launch Glacéau vitaminwater®, enhanced water that contains valuable nutrients.
