Manufacturer's Brand Overview
The AriZona strategy is remarkably simple to explain: Create great looking products of the highest quality that people will like AND can afford to buy.
In the early 90’s Arizona Chairman, Don Vultaggio, was in the beer business, producing malt liquor. Sales were brisk, but not nearly as brisk as the “new age” beverages that Vultaggio saw flying off shelves.
Thus, AriZona was born. The company offered value in a pricey category—among many things, the owners decided to print a 99-cent price on a 23-ounce can so retailers couldn’t jack up the price. But they didn’t just offer low-price, AriZona also made high-quality products—they are all naturally heat pasteurized, so they don’t have to add in chemical preservatives. To top it off, AriZona sold it’s iced teas in vividly designed cans and bottles that were different than anything else in stores.
