The company will boost consumption of soft drinks in returnable glass bottles with its "est Cola, Real Star of the Meal" campaign, with 'James' Jirayu joining the "Superstar Squad" that already features 'Great' Warintorn, 'Boy' Pakorn, and 'Alek' Teeradetch.

The campaign will reinforce how the good taste and fizziness of est cola makes it the star of any meal, as est can be paired with any flavor of food. The Superstar Squad, comprised of 'Boy' Pakorn, 'Great' Warintorn, 'Alek' Teeradetch, and 'James' Jirayu, will travel around the country to add a fizzy and refreshing feeling to people's meals in locations including Bangkok, Nakorn Pathom, Chonburi, Ratchburi, Chumphon, and Nakhon Ratchasima, from February through May 2020.

It will also increase environmental awareness about reducing the use of plastic while helping to drive our growth in the FSR channel."
