Capri Sun launches organic juice drink for kids

BY Gina Acosta

CHICAGO — Capri Sun is expanding its product line with the brand’s first-ever organic offering.

The new certified USDA Capri Sun Organic drink contains one serving of fruit in every pouch and is made with 66% fruit juice and no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. Capri Sun Organic also contains 100% daily value of Vitamin C that kids need in their daily diets, and no added sugar.

“Our consumers are at the center of everything we do and we know that while kids simply want things that taste good, parents want to feel good about what they’re serving,” said Dennis Wu, director, Refreshment Beverages, The Kraft Heinz Company. “Capri Sun Organic strikes the perfect balance between these two needs, offering the same great taste as original Capri Sun, but with the organic ingredients we know are important to moms and dads.”

Capri Sun Organic, available in Fruit Punch, Tropical Punch, Apple, and Grape, can be found in the juice aisle at retail stores nationwide.

CINCINNATI – Kroger on Wednesday announced the promotion of Kenny Kimball, currently VP operations in the company's Smith's division, to serve as president of Smith's, effective April 30. Kimball succeeds Jay Cummins, whose retirement was announced in February.
 
"Kenny's passion for developing associates and his commitment to putting our customers first will further accelerate growth in our important Smith's division markets," stated Rodney McMullen, Kroger chairman and CEO. "Kenny brings to this role leadership experience at all levels of our business and a record of success as both an operator and a merchandiser. We look forward to his leadership as president of Smith's."

In 2009, Kimball was named Smith's SVP sales and merchandising. In 2012, he was named VP merchandising for the Ralphs division, and in 2013 was named VP operations for Ralphs.
