Capri Sun (UK: /ˈkæpri/, US: /kəˈpr/) is a German juice concentrate drink owned by Capri Sun Group Holding in Switzerland, which is a privately held company of Hans-Peter Wild. It was introduced in 1969[1][2] and named after the Italian island of Capri.[3] Capri Sun has been distributed in the United States since 1981.[4] Kraft Heinz is a licensed production partner for North America. In the Netherlands, France, the UK, Belgium and Ireland, it is distributed by Coca-Cola Partners.

Distribution

The standard box is filled with ten 200-millilitre (7 US fl oz) pouches of liquid. In the U.S., Capri-Sun pouches are now 180 mL (6 US fl oz); previously they were 240 mL (8 US fl oz).[5] The pouch is trapezoidal in profile when filled and rectangular when flat, with a flared bottom that makes the pouch able to stand upright when placed on a horizontal surface. A straw is supplied with each individual pouch. Other sizes, such as the 330 mL (11 US fl oz) pouch with a re-sealable cap, are available in some countries.[citation needed]

In 2014, after continued pressure to fix what consumers described as worm-shaped food mold in Capri Sun pouches, Kraft released a clear bottomed pouch to allow consumers to better inspect the product before consumption.[6] Additionally, the non-recyclable packaging has spurred environmental groups to pressure Kraft into redesigning their iconic pouch.[7]
