Grace Foods and Services, a GraceKennedy company, has added two juices to its Tropical Rhythms line in celebration of the athletic prowess of Jamaicans who have distinguished themselves on the world stage.

The juices - Legend and Sprinter - were initially launched at the Penn Relays. They will be sold in Jamaica as well as the wider Caribbean and the United States.

Grace said the products, which contain no preservatives and are packaged in "special collectors' bottles", also commemorate GraceKennedy Limited's 90th anniversary celebrations as well as Jamaica's 50th year of Independence.

The Legend packaging is predominantly green, and features the Doctor Bird, whereas the Sprinter bottle is mostly yellow and features Olympian Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, the reigning women's 100m Olympic champion and Grace Foods ambassador.

The food company said it would donate 10 cents of every purchase of both flavours to the Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association (JAAA) for the development of athletics.
