Danone Waters is adding an apple flavour to its Volvic Touch of Fruit range to replicate sales success on the Continent.

Touch of Apple, which hit shelves last week, will only be available throughout the key summer season. The recent good weather had boosted sales for Volvic, said Trevor Datson, external communications director at Danone Waters UK.

"Volvic sales are performing ahead of budget and we've had several weeks of real growth during the spring. We're expecting a great summer, driven by the apple variant," he said.
