V8 V-Fusion Makes It Easier to Get Vegetables On-the-GoCAMDEN, N.J., Mar 03, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) — Campbell Soup Company (NYSE:CPB) is now making its popular V8
V-Fusion(R) 100% juice available in single-serving,
8-ounce slim cans. The new cans are available in six-packs at
supermarkets nationwide as well as 24-packs of 11.5-ounce, multi-serve
cans at select club stores.
Available in Pomegranate Blueberry and Strawberry Banana varieties, the
cans are ideal for packing in a purse or in a child’s lunchbox. Each
8-ounce can provides a full serving of vegetables (1/2 cup) and a
full serving of fruit (1/2 cup), as well as essential antioxidant
vitamins A, C and E and no added sugar.
Currently, seven out of ten Americans don’t get their
government-recommended vegetable servings each day, but research
suggests the key to bridging this “vegetable gap” may be to focus on the
factors that are often behind it: convenience and enjoyment.1,2
The makers of V8(R) juice continue to address
these barriers through innovation.
“Most people know that they don’t get enough vegetables – but it can be
challenging to find great-tasting options throughout the day,” said Dale
Clemiss, Vice President, Beverage Marketing, V8 Beverages.
“That’s why we are constantly striving to offer more and more ways to
help people get their vegetables any time, anywhere through new products
like V8 V-Fusion cans.”
