Bristol drinks brand Koji secures funds to drive next stage of growth

koji bottlesKoji, a soft drinks brand that was launched to market two years ago by Bristol-based Future Drinks Co, has secured follow-on funding from the government-backed Angel CoFund.

Other investors will also be supporting the company in its next growth phase.

The latest investment in the business means it can continue to scale up its operations and take the Koji brand into new market sectors.

Koji is a range of balanced, natural spring waters infused with Japanese fruits and botanicals.

Tim Chater, Future Drinks co-founder, comments: “It’s great to have more funds in place, and especially from all of our original investors.

“The growth potential for Koji is huge, given the scrutiny that high-sugar food and drink is under both by consumers and by retailers. Koji offers a healthy, low-sugar alternative that we know appeals to adults in particular.

“The soft drinks and health drinks markets are worth more than £13bn in the UK so we know there is a great opportunity here. “
