Britvic UK has created a new range of soft drinks, including two lighter tasting varieties of its J2O range of premium fruit juices.
J2O White Blend encompasses a white grape and kiwi flavour, as well as a red grape and blackcurrant option.
Celebrity chef Simon Rimmer has worked in partnership with the manufacturer to develop ‘perfect’ recipes to match the brand’s new offerings.
He said: “White grape and kiwi goes well with white meats and more savoury snacks, whilst red grape and blackcurrant with its fruitiness and spicy notes complements stronger, more complex foods.”
The J2O White Blend products are being launched in all major supermarkets, with a four-unit multipack of standard bottles retailing at £3.58, while a larger 750ml bottle will cost consumers £2.49.
Scottish drinks manufacturer AG Barr recently announced that it too would be launching a new product for the summer.
‘Big Match’ cans of Irn-Bru, Scotland’s favourite soft drink product, which are 50 per cent larger than the standard offering, in a limited edition 500ml can, will be on sale throughout the World Cup period.
