The company, which creates popular branded and private label juices, juice drinks, carbonated soft drinks and mineral waters, as well as ready-to-drink alcohol and freezables – has installed state-of-the-art packaging facilities and set up new lines at the Lomeshaye Industrial Estate site.

The new packaging facilities support the company’s sustainability commitments and have been designed to reduce secondary packaging.

Refresco’s expansion has resulted in 20 permanent production vacancies and 12 permanent warehousing and supply vacancies. These new positions will supplement the current 170-strong workforce.
