£13million Coleford investment helps Lucozade Ribena Suntory meet targets

The new production line at Lucozade Ribena Suntory's Coleford base will help fuel the drinks company's quest to meet ambitious health and well-being targets.

The £13million investment that will enable the company to grow its lower-sugar drinks portfolio is set to go fully online in December.

That investment includes £3million that will be invested in local contractors that will allow the Royal Forest Factory to produce 1.3million bottles of drinks per day.

Last week, the drinks giant released its latest Health and Well-being report, which outlines the progress it has made against ambitious targets.

The report reveals numerous initiatives, investments and achievements the company has made to improve lives.

These include a 17-strong employee wellbeing panel made up from across the business, including the Royal Forest Factory in Coleford.

New products, such as the seven new lower-calorie drinks like Ribena Frusion are also highlighted as our the fact that 60 of the products are now reformulated to lower-sugar recipes.

Lucozade Ribena Suntory has, for a long time, put health and well-being at the core of its business, with an ongoing commitment to helping customers and employees lead a healthier lifestyle.

Mary Guest, Lucozade Ribena Suntory's General Counsel and HR Director, said: "As a business we like to make things happen and so we're thrilled that we've reached so many people.

"These figures show that a responsible business really can make a difference.

"Our hope is for other businesses like ours to be inspired by the results we've seen and set their own ambitious health and well-being targets to help make Britain a healthier place."
