The youth of today are constantly on the move and are looking for a differentiated hack to satiate their hunger, Rani Float, the latest offering from Coca-Cola’s global basket, now made in India with Indian fruits for the Indian youth, steps in to offer a delicious and ready to drink snack.
Rani Float was launched in 1982, by Aujan Industries, a business based in Saudi Arabia. In 2011 it formed a joint venture with Coca-Cola thereby creating Rani Refreshments, the owner of the Rani brand.
Made with fruits sourced from Indian farms, Rani Float is truly one of its kind delicious blend of fruit juice and real fruit pieces. This chunky delight is priced at Rs 35 for 180 ml and available in two scrumptious flavors that are Peach and Strawberry-Banana. The company stated that it is designed especially for the millennial youth who want a differentiated fruit snacking experience. The launch of Rani Float is also a significant addition to The Coca-Cola Company’s beverages portfolio and underlines its focus on the ‘Fruit Circular Economy’ enabling farmers to increase their yield through sourcing fruits to launch fruit-based beverages.
Speaking on the launch, T Krishnakumar, president, Coca-Cola India, and Southwest Asia said, “We’re excited to bring Rani Float to India, the latest example of Coca-Cola’s strategy to offer more choices to consumers and catering to their diverse tastes and preferences across beverage categories. Rani float is a convenient on-the-go snack that comes with a differentiated proposition – fruit drink with real fruit pieces. We are even more excited that we locally source fruits for Rani Float that is in line with our commitments towards the Fruit Circular Economy. We will continue to enhance the portfolio of innovative fruit-based beverages.”
Abdulla Aujan, chairman of Rani Refreshments commented, “After many months of preparation, Coca-Cola India, together with its manufacturing and distribution partners, have launched Rani Float and we are now ready to make India a major global market for the Rani brand. Given the size of the market and the huge growth potential, I am confident that our new partnership will enable Rani to live up to its name as the ‘Queen’ of juices in India.”
Rani Float is currently available in metro cities across India. Coca-Cola will make Rani Float available to a wider consumer audience through Reliance Retail stores in Hyderabad, Vijayawada, Guntur, Bengaluru, Mumbai, Pune, Delhi NCR, Chennai, and Sirhind.
According to the press statement, the brand will soon roll out a range of activities, digital and social media initiatives to engage with consumers. In the coming months, Rani Float will expand the range by introducing more flavors.
