Hunter’s, the largest real, natural cider brand in Africa, introduces an innovative new hybrid category breaker, for those who want to discover something different.
Breaking barriers for the first time in South Africa, EDGE delivers the first gulp refreshment of cider at the start and the full-flavoured taste of hops to the very last sip.
With a rich, golden colour and a distinctively smooth taste, this refreshing cider which is balanced with the taste of real hops, gives men what they want to hit the spot.
“EDGE is for every social occasion that brings together what unites us. Created for those who like to explore the new and unconventional. For those who are bold, individual and confident to choose both the crisp refreshment of cider and easy drinking taste of hops,” says Maijaliina Hansen, Global Marketing Manager.
When asked what makes this new offering stand out, Maijaliina says: “What makes EDGE different is that it is real. Real cider combined with real hops extract. EDGE delivers bold masculine packaging and a real hops taste. The quality is undeniable."
When beer will not cut it and flavours are fake, it’s time to get the best of both and keep it real. EDGE features an embossed bottle, premium blue and gold colours with a rich blue foil to lock in freshness. It’s designed to stand out from the crowd and created to satisfy the taste of unconventional explorers, who aren’t afraid to push boundaries and break barriers.
EDGE is now available in store in 330ml bottles and 440ml cans and is available in both 6 and 12-pack formats, to deliver real value that offers more to consumers. EDGE will engage consumers through a national tasting drive with free sample cans, visibility and in-store activations, premium events in the on-trade and influencer targeted digital and PR support at launch. This will be backed by a through-the-line campaign with television, radio and out-of-home awareness, national large-scale events, in-store promotions, on-going premium visibility and the launch of the returnable 660ml bottle in 12 pack crates in July 2017.
Black Friday has come and gone, with popular consumer products ranging from food items, electronic devices and to furniture items flying off the shelves at bargain prices.

Retailers of a certain age will be able to cast their minds back to the 1990s when they didn’t need to look much further than the trusted combo of a ‘POS’ and supply chain management tool. A lot has changed in the decades that have passed since an ever-increasing amount of functions are running in the back end, so a typical retailer now uses a multitude of systems, including marketing systems, communications, RFID, ECMS, ESS, IMS, ICMS, DSS, WMS and many others. There’s been talk of Big Data across multiple business sectors in recent years, and retail is clearly an area where vast amounts of it have been created.
