Fiji Water gets a six-pack
LOS ANGELES Fiji Water is getting smaller and more convenient for on-the-go customers.
Fiji Water’s Mini & Mobile six pack shrinks down the 330-mL container for Fiji Water fans who are looking for a smaller-scale version of their favorite bottled water brand.
“Since the 330 ML FIJI launch in 2006, it has been a highly adored product due to its smart size and fit,” said Grace Jeon, SVP national sales and field marketing for FIJI Water. “To deliver greater value and ensure competitive pricing structure, we worked with our customers to create the ideal six-pack.”
FIJI Water’s new Mini & Mobile is currently available at retailers including Target and Kroger, as well as many other fine grocery chains at a recommended price point of $5.49.
3 Musketeers Truffle Crisp partners with E! correspondent
HACKETTSTOWN, N.J. The newest 3 Musketeers candy has teamed up with E! News host Giuliana Rancic to celebrate its launch.
Each bar of the newest 3 Musketeers, which officially launched last month, contains a truffle sitting on a crisp layer of meringue enrobed in velvety chocolate. In line with the partnership, 3 Musketeers Truffle Crisp bar is offering fans the opportunity to meet Rancic in Los Angeles for a special lunch. Between now and April 23, consumers ages 18 years and older can visit Facebook.com/3musketeers, click on the contest tab and detail in 25 words or less, “What would you rather share than a 3 Musketeers Truffle Crisp bar?” One grand-prize winner with the most creative and entertaining submission will be selected.
“I am excited about my partnership with 3 Musketeers and the opportunity to enjoy an afternoon with a fan,” Rancic said. “Since the 3 Musketeers Truffle Crisp is rich enough to share, but you really won’t want to, I would rather share my experiences as an entertainment reporter than my Truffle Crisp, and am looking forward to hearing what others would rather share.”
PepsiCo seeks to reduce Tropicana’s carbon footprint with new program
PURCHASE, N.Y. PepsiCo is looking to reduce the carbon footprint of its Tropicana Pure Premium orange juice.
PepsiCo and Carbon Trust launched a partnership to reduce Tropicana Pure Premium product’s lifecycle by testing multiple creative approaches using reduced-carbon fertilizers. The partnership was prompted by the discovery that 35% of carbon emissions of the product was fertilizer use and application for the growing process. Tropicana, in tandem with one of its long-time growers, SMR Farms in Bradenton, Fla., is launching a pilot study to test two alternative fertilizers to determine whether using either could significantly reduce the carbon footprint associated with the agricultural production of oranges.
“This pilot program is an example of how PepsiCo is working hand-in-hand with our suppliers to find innovative ways to make our agricultural practices more environmentally sustainable,” said Indra Nooyi, chairman and CEO of PepsiCo. “As a company that relies on the Earth’s natural resources to make our products, we are keenly focused on reducing our carbon footprint wherever we can. If this test is successful, it could positively impact growing practices far beyond our business alone.”
