Cawston Press has ambitious expansion plans

03 June 2018

Soft drinks company, Cawston Press, has raised £1m in an equity fundraising round to support continued expansion – both at home and overseas. 

The money comes from existing shareholders, members of the Cawston Press team from the UK, Australia and USA as well as a select number of private investors in the food and drink industry.

Steve Kearns, managing director of Cawston Press said: “When we initially considered undertaking a full external fundraising round, we quickly realised that there was sufficient appetite from within our own ‘Cawston Crowd’ of founder shareholders, the management team and close industry contacts to raise the necessary money ourselves. We are delighted that many of the wider team have chosen to participate and now become shareholders in the business.”

The fundraising follows the recent introduction by Cawston Press of a no added sugar sparkling range recipes in the UK and a continued push for international distribution.

In 2017 the brand first launched into the US natural and speciality food channels and is now supporting this market with a bigger local team and key retailer trade marketing programmes. Later this summer, Cawston Press sparkling drinks will also launch in France.
