Idea

MARKET

The UK soft drinks market was worth £15.2bn in 2017, with 1.4% in market growth. GUNNA competes in the carbonates sector, which has over 30% of the market share.

OPPORTUNITY

In the same way that craft beers have transformed their market, consumer research shows that there is an opportunity for craft soft drinks, because millennials are looking for great tasting, healthier and more natural soft drinks.

STRONG TRACTION

GUNNA is currently growing with revenue up 300% vs 2017 (Average loss MoM in 2017 of £45k: 2018 average loss of £42k). It is already stocked in over 3,500 outlets including WHSmith, Co-op, Central Convenience, Bestway and many more. We have won 2 prestigious global innovation awards.

PRODUCT

GUNNA is healthier, with less than 5% sugar, 100% natural favours and no preservatives. It has a modern, craft brand image that appeals to millennials. There are 4 unique flavours, inspired by famous soft drinks blends from around the world. In consumer taste tests GUNNA outscores leading competitors. Environmentally better, as not in plastic bottles. Exempt from sugar tax and competitively priced at 89p per can

USE OF FUNDS

The funds raised will be used for trade marketing to drive GUNNA into more outlets, recruitment of new sales people and consumer marketing to increase awareness

The market has seen multinational drinks companies actively merging and acquiring small companies.
