Pepsi launches first new bottle in 16yrs

Pepsi has unveiled a new single-serve bottle for its Pepsi trademark portfolio including Pepsi, Diet Pepsi, Pepsi Max and Pepsi Next, marking its first design update since 1996.

A visual expression of the brand's Excitement of Now positioning, the bottle is rolling out in markets across the US this month in 16-ounce and 20-ounce packaging, with full conversion taking a few years.

"This new bottle is the next milestone in Pepsi's Live For Now marketing campaign," said Angelique Krembs, VP TM Pepsi Marketing. "Our single serve bottle is the most visible and tangible connection point we have with our consumers, and we love how the new bottle expresses our brand DNA." 

The new bottle has a bold swirl, elevated profile and an etched bottom making it easier to grip. A new, 12-ounce glass bottle will also be offered as a premium package in select stores.

The new bottle is the first iteration of the redesign of the full portfolio currently underway under the stewardship of PepsiCo's chief design officer Mauro Porcini, with additional elements to be rolled out throughout the year.
