Disrupting the smoothies and juices shelves

Best of both worlds

We partnered with Danone UK to create a distinctive brand and packaging design for its latest product innovation and new range offer. Actimel Fruit & Veg Cultured Shots aims to help Danone recruit younger consumers and revolutionise the smoothies and juices category, with its new shot format yogurt smoothies.

The new product leverages the key insight that consumers like smoothies, but hesitate to drink them owing to their high calorie counts, offering fewer than 50 calories per bottle. The new Fruit & Veg Cultured Shots proposition balances Actimel’s USP (Immune System Support, Unique L. Casei Cultures and Iconic shot format) with smoothie cues of modern health and a high taste appeal.

Actimel Fruit & Veg shots are launching in three delicious flavours, each with a blend of specially selected fruits, one vegetable and on trend ingredient plus Danone’s signature fermented milk with L Casei cultures.

A unique mix

The key was to create a pack design that balanced Actimel’s existing equities with the promise of the new innovative product. The pack design needed to be relevant for the wider drinks category and its category codes of naturalness, ingredients/taste, shot-formats, and strength/immunity.


Actimel Fruit & Veg Cultured Shots will be available in all stores in Ireland from late July while consumers in the UK will be able to pick them in Ocado from the 29th July and wider convenience stores, plus major retailers from September onwards.
