Robinsons continues to help retailers unlock on-the-go soft drink sales with new Benefit Drops. Available from April, the mini packs from the UK’s favourite squash brand will be available in four flavours. Each with a different added functional benefit, the Britvic-owned range will offer shoppers a convenient and tasty way to gain additional vitamins while on-the-move – helping consumers make tastier, healthier choices in line with Britvic’s long-term Healthier People strategy.
The new Benefit Drops range consists of:
- Vitality: Peach, Mango & Passion Fruit with added vitamin B3
- Immunity: Orange & Guava flavour with added vitamin C
- Boost: Raspberry, Strawberry & Acai with added B6
- Focus: Lemon, Lime & Ginseng with added B3 and Zinc
Ben Parker, at home commercial director at Britvic, comments: “When people are on-the-go all day, we know it can be difficult to stay on top of keeping hydrated. Benefit drops are the ideal portable format for shoppers on the move, adding great taste and additional vitamins to their water. In fact, 32% of consumers have said they would be interested in buying cordials and squashes with added vitamins or minerals.
“Our existing range of Minis is currently the biggest Pocket Squash brand within the category, generating £6million in RSV, and selling over 3.2 million units in the last year alone. The success of the Minis range reflects consumer demand for convenient formats of squash, as on-the-go occasions continue to make a comeback.”
Similar to the existing minis range, Benefit Drops can be displayed on clip strips in the fridges at the front of stores to encourage impulse buys, and keep the brand at the front of shoppers’ minds. Benefit Drops are available across grocery and convenience channels from April. The roll out of the range will be supported by a below the line media campaign and on social media from April.
