Old Orchard Introduces First Multi-Serve Vitamin Water, Sweetened with Agave Nectar and Real Fruit Juice

SPARTA, Mich., April 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading beverage company Old Orchard Brands introduces a unique entry into the functional beverage category today with the launch of FruitSense, the first vitamin water available in multi-serve, 64-ounce bottles. It becomes available nationwide at SuperTarget stores this week and at traditional grocery stores early next month, with a suggested retail of $3.49 per bottle.

FruitSense is available only in large, lightweight plastic bottles typically reserved for the fruit juice aisle of the grocery store, a move that suggests flavored-waters are headed toward traditional "at-home" consumption in what has traditionally been a single-serve "on-the-go" segment.

The new beverage is sweetened naturally with real fruit juice and organic agave nectar. Each eight-ounce serving features antioxidant vitamins C and E, essential vitamins A and B, plus additional ingredients for added functionality, including Echinacea, EGCG, CoQ10, ginseng, taurine, hibiscus, magnesium, zinc, calcium and iron. All six flavors are sweetened naturally with low-glycemic organic agave nectar and 5 percent real fruit juice, resulting in only 45 calories per serving. The product has no preservatives and is gluten free.

"FruitSense combines the best of all worlds: 5 percent real fruit juice, added vitamins, a low calorie count, and an organic sweetener that's friendly to a diabetic diet," said Kevin Miller, vice president of marketing for Old Orchard Brands. "In addition, as a multi-serve product, we offer consumers a lower cost per ounce, in a more environmentally-friendly package. We feel this gives our product a strong competitive edge."

According to a recent Beverage Marketing Corporation study, the fastest growing segment in the beverage category is flavored and functional waters, which saw double digit growth year-to-year in 2007. FruitSense has been designed to take advantage of this growth trend.

FruitSense is being offered in six flavors, each supporting a distinctive health benefit: Key Lime Colada is enhanced with EGCG to help boost metabolism; Pomegranate, Blueberry, Mangosteen includes Co-enzyme Q10 for heart health; Kiwi Dragonfruit contains ginseng and taurine for natural, caffeine-free energy; Strawberry, Peach, Melon includes hibiscus, vitamin D, and magnesium to combat stress; Tangerine Grapefruit includes zinc and Echinacea for preventative health; and Cranberry, Raspberry is blended with calcium, vitamin D and iron for women's health.

Old Orchard will kick-off the launch of FruitSense with national print advertising, radio advertising, and product sampling, and is giving away free bottles of FruitSense to the first 50,000 visitors to the company's website:
