This chunky delight is priced at INR 35/- for 180 ml and available in two scrumptious flavors: Peach and Strawberry-Banana. It is designed especially for the millennial youth who want a differentiated fruit snacking experience. The launch of Rani Float is also a significant addition to The Coca-Cola Company’s beverages portfolio and underlines its focus on the ‘Fruit Circular Economy' enabling farmers to increase their yield through sourcing fruits to launch fruit-based beverages.

Speaking on the launch, T.

We will continue to enhance the portfolio of innovative fruit based beverages.”

Abdulla Aujan, Chairman of Rani Refreshments commented “After many months of preparation, Coca-Cola India, together with its manufacturing and distribution partners, have launched Rani Float and we are now ready to make India a major global market for the Rani brand.  Given the size of the market and the huge growth potential, I am confident that our new partnership will enable Rani to live up to its name as the “Queen” of juices in India.”

Rani Float is currently available in metro cities across India. Coca-Cola will make Rani Float available to a wider consumer audience through Reliance Retail stores in Hyderabad, Vijayawada, Guntur, Bengaluru, Mumbai, Pune, Delhi NCR, Chennai and Sirhind.
