Secomak Returns To BBC's Inside The Factory: Soft Drinks


BBC's Inside The Factory visited the Ribena factory (Lucozade Ribena Suntory) in Coleford, Gloucester, exploring the processing, bottling and packing requirements before shipping the products to retailers.

 

At the Ribena factory, over 400 staff work around the clock to produce 25 different soft drinks - Gregg Wallace

Once the blackcurrents are picked from the farm, Thatchers Cider Mill in Somerset step in to support in processing them. But why are Ribena's blackcurrents shipped 200 miles to a seperate facility?

 
Between September - December every year, they are busy pressing apples for cider. Which means their machinery is available in July, to press blackcurrents! - Gregg Wallace
