Blog: Olly WehringBritvic on the prowl

Olly Wehring | 25 November 2009

Soft drinks group Britvic is "ready to go" on acquisitions, according to the company's finance director.

But where will it go and when? One analyst told just-drinks today (25 November) that the company likely has a specific target in mind and will probably look to pounce within four months.

Scandinavia and the Netherlands would be obvious foreign targets, with the group already selling its Robinsons and Fruit Shoot brands there.

What price a Christmas bonus for Britvic's portfolio?
