Soft drinks manufacturer Britvic has acquired UK plant-based drinks company Plenish for an undisclosed amount.

Established in 2012, Plenish is engaged in the production of plant-based milk, cold-pressed juices and shots.

Plenish’s products are produced with organic and sustainably sourced ingredients and are available at major national grocery retailers. Its products are also sold via the direct-to-consumer website.

Plenish founder Kara Rosen said: “I’m so excited for Plenish to join forces with Britvic, who I’ve long admired as a brilliant builder of brands and shares similar values, particularly around healthier people and planet.

“Together we can reach more people in more places with products and programmes that help you feel good, made in a way that you can feel good about.”

The deal will expand Britvic’s presence in soft drinks segments and also enhance its offerings portfolio with plant-based milk and organic juice products.

Britvic CEO Simon Litherland said: “Plenish is a fantastic addition to Britvic’s stable of market-leading products and I am delighted to welcome them to our business.

“In only a short time, Plenish has built a hugely impressive brand, offering a fantastic range of products that cater to the growing demand for healthy and nutritious juices and plant-based milk.

“At Britvic, we have a long history of building successful brands and we see tremendous potential in Plenish that we look forward to realising in the years ahead.”
