After taking the Philippines by storm, C2 Green Tea, manufactured by Universal Robina Corporation (URC), is now the hippest new beverage in Vietnam.
Some of Vietnam’s hottest celebrities joined the recent launch of C2 variants exclusively for the Vietnam market, such as Jasmine and Lotus, plus the Classic Green Tea. The event was held at the Omni Hotel in Ho Chi Minh.
Hosted by the lovely former Miss Vietnam, Ngoc Khanh, the launch featured the hot boyband MTV and (sorry, stet) upcoming singer-actress Pham Thanh Thao as guest performers. Also in attendance were URC executives, led by URC Executive Vice President Patrick Ng.
C2 Green Tea’s endorser in Vietnam is award-winning actor Tru’o'ng Minh Quoc Thai. Best remembered for his role as Phat in The Weak Woman, which won the Mai Vang Award in 2003, Quoc Thai is well-known for his work in historical films and television. For the role of Bay Vien in the period film Binh Xuyen Man, he studied martial arts for a year.
Discriminating and precise in his choice of roles, Quoc Thai is the perfect endorser for C2 Green Tea. “You have to be strict with yourself and devoted to your choices,” he says.
The increasing demand for C2 has led URC to open a manufacturing plant in Vietnam, and expand its Philippine plant.”C2 revolutionized the Philippine beverage market. We are getting more and more inquiries (in international markets),” says URC President Lance Gokongwei.
