It performed incredibly well in consumer testing, with 88% percent of people stating that they intend to purchase the product because of the perfect consistency making it easy to drink.

“People are becoming busier in their daily lives and don’t always have time to prepare a full breakfast, our 750ml size offers a great option to add to your breakfast at home or at work and the 330ml size is perfect for an on-the-go top up, a growing trend that is set to continue. We are confident that sales for Morning Boost will be incremental to the juices and smoothies segment, and it will be supported with high-levels of in-store activation and digital activity delivering a sales hit for retailers.”
