Beverage manufacturer Aimia Foods, producer of hot and cold beverage brands including Galaxy Hot Chocolate and No Fear Energy drinks, have been recognised for their manufacturing capabilities winning the Best Factory Award 2012.
Organised by Works Management in partnership with the Cranfield School of Management, The Best Factory Awards (BFA) and conference brings manufacturers together to share best practice and to celebrate their achievements.
The judges were impressed with a state-of-the-art pouch packing line, added to the factory in 2011, which manufactures various packaging formats and provides options for Aimia's own brand products and prospective companies looking for an outsourcing solution. The innovative pouches, designed for the out-of-home sector are capable of providing bespoke pack size and product solutions.

To win the top British Factory Award for best factory plus three category awards is an enormous accolade and a credit to our very talented and hardworking team.
"Our aim is to make Aimia the UK's leading privately owned hot and cold beverage business. This award coupled with the performance of our brands is taking us a step in the right direction"
