AriZona Beverages Adds 11.5-Oz. Cans

RTD tea maker extends packaging mix with 12-packs

WOODBURY, N.Y. -- AriZona Beverages USA LLC, a leader in premium ready-to-drink (RTD) tea beverages in the United States, has extended its packaging mix for AriZona Iced Tea to include 12-packs of 11.5-ounce cans from Rexam. The addition will help the tea giant further expand into the mass market, it said.

Like all AriZona products, the AriZona Iced Teas are made with no artificial colors, artificial flavors or preservatives. This commitment to quality and the success of AriZona's signature single-serve 23-ounce can, it said, has helped the brand stay on top of the RTD [image-nocss] tea segment, which is the fastest growing beverage segment in the convenience store channel.

The company hopes this new package option will increase the reach of its flagship brand.

"We are pleased to provide our consumers with even more ways to enjoy their favorite tea beverage," said Don Vultaggio, chairman of AriZona Beverages. "Our continued partnership with Rexam allows us to expand our packaging portfolio to include 11.5-oz. cans, making it even easier to store and consume AriZona Iced Tea at home or on the go."

AriZona Iced Tea in 11.5-oz. cans is currently available nationwide.

Rexam, with U.S. headquarters in Chicago, is a global consumer packaging company. It is one of the largest beverage can makers in the world, and a major global player in rigid plastic packaging.
