Lucozade Zero, the zero sugar range from the UK’s biggest energy & sport drink brand[i], is following the recent launch of Lucozade Zero Tropical by launching its range in a 330ml can format.
Both Lucozade Zero Tropical, the Lucozade brand’s first ever flavour exclusive to the Lucozade Zero range, and Lucozade Zero Pink Lemonade, will be available from the start of April in 330ml cans, price-marked at 65p.
The Lucozade Zero range is currently worth £21M[ii], and the opportunity for retailers created by low and no sugar soft drinks is huge. More than half (58%[iii]) of total soft drink volumes are made up of low and no sugar drinks, and over the past few years, shoppers’ spending on zero and low-sugar drinks has increased by 33%[iv] and 29%[v] respectively, showing just how important this segment of the market is.
Zoe Trimble, Head of Lucozade Energy at Suntory Beverage & Food GB&I, “Introducing Lucozade Zero Tropical and Lucozade Zero Pink Lemonade in a 330ml can format makes total sense and offers retailers a real opportunity to bring new shoppers into the Zero brand.
“With sales of 330ml cans growing by 17%[viii], sales of low and no sugar drinks rising year-on-year, and a clear desire from shoppers for new flavours – one in three[ix] shoppers would buy more Lucozade Zero if a new flavour was available – this new 330ml can range is the perfect launch for this time.”
The new format, including the new Lucozade Zero Tropical flavour, will be at the front of shoppers’ minds thanks to a comprehensive marketing campaign including outdoor advertising, PR, digital and social media advertising, which will go live in the summer.
