Itoen was spotted at 1 Stop Mart.
The sum up, the key players in the RTD tea markets in Myanmar are Oishi, VeVe Beverages, Zeno and now Coca-Cola (Heaven and Earth). The price per bottle is between MMK 450 (USD 0.34) to MMK 500. There are also a few other brands with a presence in the market including Indonesia’s Sinar Sosro (Fruit Tree), F&N and Yeo’s.
