“We’re really excited about the launch of our first-ever energy juice, offering consumers a different energy option to help them kick-start their day,” said Dave Mingey, vice president of marketing, AMP Energy. “Many core consumers told us they weren’t interested in coffee to solve their morning energy needs. They needed something that went beyond traditional energy drinks.

AMP Energy is also igniting the energy category with the launch of two additional new offerings, specifically made to meet the needs of consumers and provide long lasting energy any time of day.
