We want to make a meaningful contribution to our communities. We do this through volunteering, corporate partnerships, fundraising and brand partnerships.
We recognise the importance of making a meaningful contribution to our communities. Across our markets we have a variety of programmes and charities that focus on making a difference and giving back. Employee involvement is encouraged and offers an opportunity for people to take pride in the positive impact they and Britvic can make.
We offer community volunteering days to employees, and the range of charities they support is as diverse as the workforce itself. We aim for employees to collectively spend 326 days a year volunteering across our British and Irish businesses. This year we recorded 788 days versus 482 last year – an increase of 64%, meaning we continue to achieve our 2025 goal.
As a business, we support a range of charities including: Bounce Forward, the children’s mental resilience charity, Only A Pavement Away, a charity supporting those at risk of homelessness, the Children’s Health Foundation, Mesa Brasil, the largest food bank network in Latin America, and Restos du Coeur de l’Isère in France, which tackles hunger and reduces food waste.
At the same time, we recognise brands have the power to positively impact communities. Tango has entered the second year of its partnership with The Prince’s Trust and pledged to donate a further £120,000. This funding will help youngsters unlock their potential and give them access to one-to-one support including counselling, education and careers advice.
For the tenth year in a row, MiWadi and Trick or Treat for Sick Children are joining forces for Halloween — having raised over €3.5m of vital funds for Children’s Health Ireland to date.
Supporting young people is important to us. It’s why our lab technicians are working with the Science Museum to create a free, interactive gallery that aims to inspire consideration of technical careers. It’s why we have 48 apprentices working at Britvic across our business from engineering to marketing.
