Oxygen brand OGO widens product portfolio

O-Company, the Belgian outfit that sells over-the-counter oxygen called OGO, is extending its range of products by launching an oxygenated water.

The company, which launched the OGO oxygen cylinders in April last year, will be introducing the 33cl globes of water across Europe in July via up-market bars and restaurants, with a plan to roll out to retail depending on response rates. The product will be priced at about &£1 in the UK.

The company, founded in 1999 by entrepreneur Bart Meijer, claims oxygen-enriched products have health benefits for the consumer and are an alternative to caffeine-based pick-me-ups. OGO water is oxygen-enriched by a non-chemical process to 300mg of oxygen a litre. Half-litre and one-litre globe packaging is also planned.

Spirit is responsible for developing the O-Company brand in the UK (MW March 1, 2001) and will handle marketing for OGO water. Initially it will be carrying out direct marketing and sampling activity.

OGO oxygen canisters are stocked in some branches of Boots, the Fresh & Wild Health food chain, and have just been listed at Harrod’s.
