ATLANTA, September 22, 2011 – Enjoying little moments of happiness just got easier. Coca-Cola announced today that it will provide a more affordable price point for the popular 7.5 oz. mini can to expand consumer’s options for enjoying their favorite Coca-Cola beverage.
The new price point will make the mini can more accessible during smaller thirst occasions. The new recommended pricing for an 8-pack of Coca-Cola mini cans will reduce the average price for the package to just under three dollars. This makes the per can cost comparable to that of the 12 oz. can fridge pack for most of the year.
“We are constantly listening to our consumers as we strive to provide them with the rightCoca-Colabeverage in the right package and price point, for the right occasion” said Katie Bayne, President & General Manager of Sparkling Beverages,Coca-ColaNorth America. “Consumers today want affordable options for their favorite beverages. And the new mini can pricing makes it even easier for consumers to enjoy the great taste of their favorite Coca-Cola beverage even when they want a little less.”
The Coca-Cola mini can leads the beverage industry in design innovation and affordability. The Coca-Cola mini was the first portion control beverage to be introduced in a sleek design in 2009. Now in 2011, for the first time in the beverage category, the popular portion control package is available at an affordable everyday price.
The new recommended pricing is being introduced to theCoca-ColaSystem and extends to the entire line of mini can beverages including: Coca-Cola, Diet Coke, Coke Zero, Sprite, Fanta Orange and Seagram’s.
Consumers will soon see even more package options for their favoriteCoca-Colabeverages. A new 12.5 oz PET bottle will be available for Coca-Colat trademark brands this fall. This new package joins the 16 oz., 20 oz. and 1 liter packages that are sold icy cold at retailers throughout the country.
