The Out of Home Summer Gala brought together industry leaders and influencers for a forward-thinking conversation on the future of unattended retail.
This year, Aqua Libra Co and Britvic joined other leading organisations to launch the expanded ‘Smart Retail Solutions Group’.
The Smart Retail Solutions Group are a collaboration of industry specialists who have come together to deliver a leading micro-market solution. Whether you are a Facilities Manager, a Contract Caterer or a Vending Operator, you will have found everything you need to know at this event.
Recognising the need for a beverage partner who could operate across both packaged drinks and ‘package-less’ soft drinks, the teams at Aqua Libra Co and Britvic have been working for many months behind the scenes to get ready for this launch.
This expanded offer now creates a solution that can work in the workplace catering micro-market space. Together, the group represent an award-winning collection of thought leadership, technology, equipment, and brands which make for the ultimate ‘one stop shop’ in vending, delivering for clients as simply and profitably as possible.
Trystan Farnworth, Commercial & Marketing Director for the Aqua Libra Co, joined James Cripps of Britvic, to present the new beverage offer on stage.
‘This is a strategic and historic leap forward for the micro-market industry in GB. To bring so many industry leaders together into one group is a real credit to the thought leadership of the founders of this vision – Paul and Tom Howard and the wider team at Nebrak, leaders in catering interiors and micro-markets. All the partners are non-competing, so the sole interest is to imagine, design and execute the best possible bespoke solution for clients. As the UK’s most premium and innovative tap supplier, we’re delighted to be part of this Group’. Trystan Farnworth, Customer & Marketing Director Aqua Libra Co/ Britvic Plc.
“The brand prowess that Aqua Libra Co and Britvic Co bring to the beverage side of this partnership has gone down brilliantly with the vending industry, and there was significant interest on the day too from contract caterers, facilities managers, and mainstream retail too! The response on the day was fantastic. We can’t wait to follow up and make this a big success.” James Cripps, Britvic plc
