Bon Accord toasts success with new Morrisons supply deal
Scottish healthy soft drinks company Bon Accord has signed a new deal to supply its naturally sweetened range to Morrisons supermarkets across Scotland.
A selection of the best-selling Bon Accord lines were launched into Morrisons Arbroath store at the end of 2021 and, following the success of this store, the Bon Accord range has been rolled out to 10 stores across Fife, Dundee, Edinburgh and Livingston.
Originally established in 1903 by the current founder’s great-great-grandfather in Arbroath Bon Accord delivered soft drinks to communities all over Scotland for over 100 years on their iconic lorries.
100% naturally sweetened with real fruit juice and organic coconut nectar, Bon Accord contains no refined sugar or artificial sweeteners, making them the only soft drinks company to use this innovative, natural way of sweetening their drinks.
The drinks are also sold in recyclable glass bottles, enhancing the company’s natural green credentials.
Karen Knowles, Bon Accord co-founder, said: “We’re delighted that now even more customers will have the opportunity to buy our fizzy drinks. Our whole ethos is to inject a bit more joy into juice and that’s why we are committed to creating products that are not only tasty and good value but also a healthier option for our customers. With our 100% sweet by nature range, we’re aiming to help health-focused consumers take small steps to reduce refined sugar in their diet and feel good about fizz.”
Angus Bell, senior local buying manager, Scotland commented: “We are excited to introduce Bon Accord into 10 Morrisons stores in the East of Scotland as part of our Local Foodmakers programme.
“Many will remember the iconic Bon Accord delivery lorries and I’m sure that the reinvented, healthier and naturally sweetened range will be a big hit with our local customers. Morrisons’ Local Foodmakers programme searches for local food and drink makers of known and locally loved products and we have started working with over 100 new local suppliers through the programme, supporting local communities and economies.”
