Following a successful launch in New Zealand last year, Canada is the second market to launch Coca-Cola Stevia, which is sweetened with 100% stevia extract.

It offers a great-tasting Coca-Cola beverage with zero sugar and zero calories.

“We’re extremely excited to launch Coca-Cola Stevia and offer more no-sugar drinks to our Canadian fans,” said Mike Samoszewski Vice President, Marketing at Coca-Cola Ltd. “People want drinks that taste amazing and are actively looking for brands and varieties that fit their lifestyle."

"Coca-Cola Stevia is for those looking for great Coca-Cola taste with a plant-based alternative to sugar that has zero calories and zero sugar.”

The latest addition to Coca-Cola Canada’s growing beverage portfolio is another step in the company’s commitment to evolve its beverage portfolio to bring Canadians more of the drinks they want.   

In fact, in 2019 Coca-Cola Canada will introduce more than 20 new brands and 60 SKUs across their portfolio, which includes a number of no- and low-calorie beverages.

Most recently, the company launched Simply Almond – Coca-Cola Canada’s first plant-based beverage in the market.

The company is constantly innovating and discovering new ways to offer great-tasting products with zero sugar and zero calories.

Stevia, for example, is an example on how alternative sweeteners are making a positive impact in the beverage industry. It is derived from the leaf of the stevia plant and is 200 times sweeter than table sugar.

Coca-Cola Stevia is now available in all major and independent retailers across Canada in several packaging sizes and formats, including: 500 mL bottles, 6 packs of 222 mL mini cans and 12 packs of 355 mL cans.
