Investing in the Future
In January we announced that our parent company, Suntory Beverage & Food, was investing £13m in Lucozade Ribena Suntory’s factory in Coleford, Gloucestershire.
The investment in new production and processing equipment and supporting infrastructure, will support the company’s global sustainability strategy by reducing the amount of water and energy required to produce each bottle. It also gives us the technology to expand our product range in years to come as we continue our journey to healthier drinks. The presence of sugar during production actually helps to prevent contamination of drinks so our new line has to produce lower-sugar drinks without compromising at all on quality.
Suntory’s commitment to our UK operations is a vote of confidence in our business, and an investment in our future health (literally) and wellbeing strategy. The new production line will be operational by the end of this year.
