    As a part of a product launching strategy in Latin America, The Coca Cola Company introduced yesterday a juice and nectar line under the Minute Maid brand.

    In Mexico, during the last six years, this sector had been showing an increase mostrado in volume of 6% and has a seven thousand million pesos value. Jumex and Del Valle have a market share of 80 per cent.

    Coca-Cola New Categories & Non-Carbonated products director, Selman Careaga, pointed that the entering of this transnational to this market of juices added with calcium, fiber and vitamins obeys to the raising need of the people for achieving a balance between physical and mental health. “They want to look and feel good”, he commented in the press meeting.

    From the non-alcoholic beverages consumed in the country, he said that 70 per cent are from natural origin (water, juices and milk) and the rest belongs to carbonated and sport drinks.

    Supermarkets represent the main point of sale with 53 per cent; where since last monday the juices are now available. In May it's contemplated the sale on little grocery stores.

    With five presentations in PET, tetrapak and glass packaging, Minute Maid Forte is a line developed spec*fically for the local market, that demands a different level of acidity, sweetness and consistency from other nations.

    According to the directives, in Mexico theres a consumption per capita of six liters of juice, specially during the breakfast; plus, their market research shows that consumers have more disposal to pay more for a product that accomplishes with their nutrition expectations, what makes this an attractive business.

    In the next days will be released in Brazil and Argentina this new l*ne of juices and nectars in asociación with a local firm. In the case of Mexico the product is linked with Minute Maid, brand that has presence in more than 100 countries and that has 60 years of existance.

    Right, they're plain juices, but added with calcium and vitamins, just like the regular Minute Maid... but now in Mexico!

    But there's two juices with mixed fruits: Fibramix or Fibermix that is a mix of pear, apple and pineapple (I haven't tried it yet), and fruit mix, I don't remember very well the fruits mixed in it, but if I see it again, I'll inform you...

    Oh well, I guess this new Minute Maid extension must be world news. In the states we have had Minute Maid juice in these extension for at lest 3 years or so. So seeing this press release more than once seems not such earth breaking news.

    MrZ. maybe you think is boring seeing Coca-Cola selling juices, because Coca-Cola U.S. has been doing this since the sixties with the acquisition of Minute Maid, but here in Mexico, we were accustomed for many years to see Coca-Cola only offering carbonated drinks, but now I'm amazed that Coca-Cola Mexico is diversifying and now offering delicious juices and drinks...like Minute Maid Forte...

    I wanted to communicate to all the members of this board about the things and releases that Coca-Cola does in Mexico, as you and all the members give me excellent news and reviews about the sodas and beverages in U.S. everyday... [img]smile.gif[/img]
