Fusion will be available in modern tetra-pak aseptic packaging which is known to preserve both the taste and flavor of the product and will be offered at a price point of Rs 20 for 200ml pack.
“In the last few years, there has been a perceivable growth in the popularity of instant or ready to serve juice based beverages. There has been a change in consumption patterns, especially in the youth who are now turning to natural, herbal products which are perceived as more healthy. RoohAfza sits naturally on this positioning, and Fusion is a natural extension in the format that connects with the youth. Fusion extends the brand to new consumers, while retaining our existing users and offering them an exciting variation of their favourite RoohAfza in fruit flavours,” Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, Hamdard, Mansoor Ali said.
The product offers a fusion of pure fruit juice with RoohAfza and will be available in five flavors – lemon, orange, mango, pineapple and litchi. The launch of RoohAfza Fusion is in line with the company’s massive transformation to get under the skin of young consumers.
