A NORTH California-based beverage company launched its newest line of products in Fiji on Monday.

Co-owner and CEO of Mylar'Cor Martinis & Sparkling Wines, Hola Motuapuaka, introduced her company's sparkling wine products during a launch at the Grand Pacific Hotel Suva on Monday.

"But what we've done is added amazing flavours to our sparkling wines," Ms Motuapuaka said.

"The name of our sparkling wine is 'Status' and our tab line is 'What will your status be today'," she said.

"So we have Status Gold; some people prefer the Status VIP today and maybe tomorrow they would go for Status Platinum.

"What we've done is innovated some new flavours that you'll never find in the market."

She said they distributed to Hawaii and California and had just launched in Dubai.

"We recently launched in India now we are looking at Sri Lanka and I thought it's about time I head towards my region of the world where my roots are from.

"My great grandmother was born in Lomaloma so I'm very proud to represent my Fijian roots.

"We're highly tied to the fashion industry and we are so pleased and excited to be branding partners with Adi Koila Ganilau-Lee's Haus of Koila; everywhere Mylar'Cor launches we always associate with the fashion industry and we're proud to be associated with the Haus of Koila brand here in Fiji," she said.
