Introduction

INTRODUCTION In this assignment I am going to find out more information about Rubicon's mouth-watering exotic juice drinks. Two ex-employees of a major international soft drinks company introduced by Rubicon in 1982. They got together & decided to start company specialising in Exotic Tropical Drinks. The love affair with exotic fruits started in one of the founder's kitchen, which was also used as a lab, and that is where the first product was born. They named it 'Passionate' - a sparkling Passion fruit drink. Passionate was a huge success when it was launched in the market. There was little marketing support at launch & the success was solely due to the authentic & premium taste. The reason why they call their company as Rubicon is that Rubicon is the name of a river and The mythological meaning of Rubicon comes from the Roman era, when a senate told Caesar that his boundary to the empire should be restricted to the river Rubicon; however, Caesar ventured past the river against instructions and ended up with a large Roman empire. He was adventurous & daring much like our founders. And now is continuing its success of they developed the second product, Sparkling Mango Crush. And today they have a delicious range of exotic fruit drinks, not only Passion fruit but there is a wide range of flavours available in Rubicon's product: Mango, Guava, Lychee, Guanabana and etc. In fact Rubicon is leading the market in single flavour exotic juice drinks in the UK. All Rubicon drinks taste more like the real fruit than any other drink. Rubicon drinks are created to produce the best taste and mouth feel for the consumer's overall enjoyment. The recipes include water to gain the correct consistency for the perfect drink and sugar is added to regain the perfect sweetness level of the original fruit. (If this pulp were left as it is, then we would have to eat it with a spoon). ...read more.
