TANG fruit flavoured drinks which have been around since 1959 continues to be the favourite drink of choice for billions of customers across the globe.

Originally formulated by General Foods Corporation food scientist William A. Mitchell, the Tang brand is owned by Mondelz International and marketed in powdered form internationally.

Packed with essential vitamins, Tang comes in various fruity flavours so every member of the family can enjoy his or her favourite flavour without much of a fuss.

Loved and enjoyed by adults and children alike, Tang is undoubtedly one of the best gifts to mankind.

Going down memory lane, Tang was used by earlier NASA manned space flights. In 1962, when Mercury astronaut John Glenn conducted eating experiments in orbit, Tang was selected for the menu. It was also used during some Gemini flights which created an early perception that Tang was developed only for use by astronauts.

“You don’t need to be an astronaut or a rocket scientist to enjoy Tang — thanks to its great taste and international distribution network which means Tang is available everywhere and to everyone,” said Motibhai Group marketing manager Abraham Gomes.

“We all have grown enjoying Tang and the brand continues to be loved by everyone, children and adults alike,” he added.

He said Tang continues to introduce new and exciting flavours as and when required.

“With real fruit extracts and essential vitamins, Tang comes in various packs and sizes to make it easily accessible to customers.”

Tang is distributed in Fiji by Motibhai Group — touching your lives with quality products.
