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."
