Coca Cola, the American multinational beverage corporation has entered the immunity segment and has announced the launch of its latest products under its Minute Maid brand – Minute Maid Vita Punch and Minute Maid Nutri Force.
In the current situation of a global pandemic, the consumers’ priorities are changing and their tastes and preferences are also evolving. Consumers are now looking out for products that are safe and that promise to enhance their immunity. So companies are now taking essential steps to keep up with the changes. Coca Cola, in line with this trend of shifting consumer preferences will launch two fruit based beverages that prioritize the consumers’ nutrition concerns.
The launch is also being considered as the company’s strategy to boost its at home consumption segment, a segment which was significantly affected in the current global scenario.
The expansion also supports the Indian farmers as the fruit based beverages are made from locally sourced fruits. Through these products Coca Cola India aims to fulfill its commitment towards creating a Fruit Circular Economy by supporting the Indian Agri-ecosystem.
The company claims that its new product Minute Maid Vita Punch, currently available in the mixed fruit flavour, is enhanced with vitamin C, zinc and several other essential vitamins required to boost immunity.
The second product, Minute Maid Nutri Force, consists of soluble iron, zinc and other important vitamins. It is currently available in two flavours, apple and mango.
