AriZona Beverages Extends Packaging Mix to Include 11.5 oz. Cans

CHICAGO, IL, May 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — AriZona Beverages USA LLC, the leader in premium ready-to-drink (RTD) tea beverages in the US, has extended its packaging mix for AriZona Iced Tea to include 12-packs of 11.5-ounce cans from Rexam. The addition will help the tea giant further expand into the mass market.

Like all AriZona products, the AriZona Iced Teas are made with no artificial colors, artificial flavors or preservatives. This commitment to quality and the success of AriZona’s signature single-serve 23-ounce can has helped the brand stay on top of the RTD tea segment, which is the fastest growing beverage segment in the convenience store channel.

The company hopes this new package option will increase the reach of its flagship brand. “We are pleased to provide our consumers with even more ways to enjoy their favorite tea beverage,” said Don Vultaggio, Chairman of AriZona Beverages. “Our continued partnership with Rexam allows us to expand our packaging portfolio to include 11.5-ounce cans, making it even easier to store and consume AriZona Iced Tea at home or on-the-go.”
