Uxbridge, West London, United Kingdom

Coca-Cola Europacific Partners (CCEP) has unveiled a new and improved taste for Fanta Orange Zero, and a bolder pack design across all its flavours, to drive growth of the no.1 flavoured carbonates brand in GB1.

With zero sugar options growing ahead of the total flavoured carbonates segment2, the reformulated Fanta Orange Zero will taste more like Fanta Regular Orange and will help drive sales for retailers.

Bold pack design, enhanced sustainability messaging

A striking new packaging design is rolling out now across all Fanta flavours. Featuring clearer differentiation between regular and zero sugar variants and bolder colours, the new look will help to deliver maximum stand-out on shelf.

New look 500ml rPET bottles of Fanta and Fanta Zero will also more clearly highlight that the bottles are made from 100% recycled plastic3 and can be recycled again. This on-label ribbon communication is being rolled out across all CCEP’s sparkling 500ml rPET portfolio.

The new designs will help to fuel momentum behind the Fanta range, which accounts for one in every five flavoured carbonates sold in GB4, and saw sales across its range increase by 6.3% in value during 20235.

Marketing campaign support

The new taste and bold design will be supported by sampling activity focused on the reformulated Fanta Orange Zero, targeted out-of-home and social media advertising campaign and influencer activity, to engage young adult shoppers and keep Fanta front of mind.

Fanta Orange Zero – Chief Flavour Officer

Fanta Orange Zero also teamed up with Jamie Laing as its ‘Chief Flavour Officer’ (CFO) to surprise unsuspecting shoppers with a mischievous prank. Jamie was recruited to help indecisive shoppers faced with a host of drink options , to choose a thirst-quenching Fanta Orange Zero. By taking over the store’s tannoy, Jamie teases unsuspecting shoppers from a hidden control centre, daring them to try the new, delicious taste of Fanta Orange Zero. 

The Coke App will also host a new playful Fanta ‘Ride n Sip’ game where consumers can unlock a free Fanta Orange Zero coupon, which aims to drive trial with over 70% of young adults in GB.

Rob Yeomans, vice-president, commercial development at Coca-Cola Europacific Partners (CCEP) GB, said: “As zero sugar flavoured carbonates grow in popularity6 we’ve identified an exciting opportunity to drive more sales of Fanta Orange Zero by making it taste even better and closer to the original. And the best way for us to showcase the great new taste is by getting consumers to try it for themselves, which is why we’ll be investing heavily in sampling activity throughout the summer.

“We have more exciting plans in store for Fanta throughout the rest of the year to help our customers unlock the flavoured carbonates growth potential, so stay stocked up!”
