VK's relaunch marks decade in market

27 March, 2009

Chairman Steve Perez said: "A brand as successful as VK needs to stay in touch with changing consumer tastes to ensure that it doesn't look dated, but it's also important that VK drinkers can still identify with the product and so any changes need to be judged carefully.

The 27.5cl bottles will be the first to make the switch, with 70cl and PETs following la ter in the year.
