Ruta Ambrasaite, Corona marketing manager for the UK & Ireland, Cnaaries, and expansion markets, said: “We are excited to be launching the Corona price-marked packs, leading the way for the premium beer category.

“Our consumer research and market analysis has found price-marked packs offer a huge opportunity for retailers, especially as national lockdown restrictions start to lift, meaning customers can take advantage of the at-home occasion with friends and family, and enjoy a Corona outdoors as the weather gets better.”
