Britvic's Revenue Rises On Strong Sales Of Sugar-Free Drinks
British soft drinks company Britvic Plc said its third-quarter revenue rose 3.4% helped by strong sales of its sugar-free and non-carbonated drinks.
The company, which also bottles Pepsi in the UK, said that it could not fully capitalise on unusually warm weather to boost sales further in Britain and Ireland, due to an industry-wide shortage of carbon dioxide.
Britvic's quarterly revenue rose 3.4% to £366.9 million. Revenue excluding the recently implemented sugar tax fell 0.6% from last year.
