The Coca-Cola range has a new look! But don’t worry – the taste is staying exactly the same.

Coca-Cola original taste and Coca-Cola zero sugar have a brand-new look. The newly designed packaging unifies the range with the iconic red colour of Coca-Cola to make it even clearer that, whichever you choose, you’ll get the same great Coca-Cola taste and experience you know and love – either with or without sugar.

Original taste since 1886

Since launching in 2016, Coca-Cola zero sugar it is now the fastest-growing no-sugar cola brand in the UK. And today more than half of the Coca-Cola we sell contains no sugar.

But if you want classic Coca-Cola, there’s still the refreshing taste of original taste Coca-Cola, which is the same recipe from 1886.

Full-red packaging

The new packs will be available from 20 August 2018 onwards. And by September 2018, all Coca-Cola drinks will be in full-red packaging with a distinctive, coloured band across the top of the label on the bottle or can, as well as the bottle cap, so you can easily see which flavour is which.

This includes:

£5m marketing campaign

To make Coca-Cola fans aware of the change, a £5 million marketing campaign will communicate the new look. It includes two adverts that will be shown on TV and online, coupled with an extensive outdoor advertising campaign. Coca-Cola will also be taking to the streets and giving out 7 million sample cans of Coca-Cola zero sugar before the end of 2018.

An original taste, one way or another

The new advert, ‘One Way or Another’, reminds Coca-Cola fans that they can enjoy the great taste of Coca-Cola with or without sugar. The film is brought to life through a series of fun, mirrored visuals of great experiences that, like both drinks, are just as enjoyable either way – tied together with the tagline ‘an original taste, one way or another’.

Alec Mellor, Coca-Cola Marketing Manager, says “For more than 130 years, the colour red has been associated with the great taste and experience of enjoying a Coca-Cola,” says Alec. “We want to make it even clearer that you can have that taste and experience with or without sugar.

“Sales of Coca-Cola zero sugar have almost doubled in the last two years and is now the fastest-growing no sugar cola in UK retail. We believe this latest change will help us grow the brand even further and encourage more people to give it a try.”

100% recyclable

All Coca-Cola packaging will continue to be 100% recyclable and the Coca-Cola system is committed to increasing the recycled plastic in all our bottles from 25 to 50 per cent by 2020.
