Coca‑Cola introduces Cappy Burst

A new affordable flavoured drink in returnable glass bottles.


To offer consumers affordable variations of The Coca‑Cola Company’s much loved Cappy fruit juice blend brand, the company launched Cappy Burst in South Africa. The new product will hit the shelves of local retailers, spaza shops, and wholesalers nationwide during October and comes in two refreshingly affordable flavours, Cappy Orange Burst and Cappy Apple Burst.

“The Cappy brand has seen phenomenal success in South Africa and steady growth in the two years since we launched the brand, and it’s become one of the top ready-to-drink juices,” says Luis Avellar, General Manager of Coca‑Cola in South Africa. “Now we’ve introduced more variations and packaging so even more people can enjoy the brand for less.”

The deliciously refreshing drink will appeal to a younger, on-the-go consumer. Cappy Burst bottles feature the distinctive black Cappy logo on a transparent PET or returnable glass bottle*. The new returnable glass bottles are part of the company’s World Without Waste vision to increase the amount of returnable packaging in the system.

The Cappy brand has also launched a new advertising campaign, “Nurture the Moment”, which invites people to find the beauty in simple moments of connection. The campaign is being rolled out across TV, radio, outdoor media, digital and social media.  

The striking creative behind the campaign bridges the brand’s historic place at the family table into a conversation. Cappy recognises that emotional nourishment derived from life’s every day moments matters.

“I’m excited about this campaign as it touches upon something that 2020 has taught us – that family moments are important. And although life can be busy and complicated, no moment is too big or small to be nurtured by the bold and refreshing taste of Cappy”, says Stephan Czypionka, Marketing Director for Coca‑Cola Southern & East Africa. “South Africa will be the first market to air this new versatile campaign, followed by numerous other markets across Africa in 2021, which will help strengthen our juice brands”.

*Disclaimer: Cappy Burst will only be available in returnable glass bottles in the Western Cape in 2021.
