The Power Of Lasting Partnerships: Boost Drinks

The latest edition of industry magazine Business Enquirer focuses on a long-standing and valued Expect Distribution customer – Boost Drinks.

Boost Drinks started out from humble beginnings with a single office in Leeds, and 20 years later it is now an award-winning drinks supplier. Its huge growth has seen it earn a position as a top three brand in each of its categories - Energy Stimulation, Sport, Protein, and Iced Coffee, and it’s now the market leader in Northern Ireland.

CEO Simon Gray founded the business straight out of university, and has built a strong business and culture with partnership at its core. Making Expect Distribution and Boost Drinks the perfect partners for more than 12 years. 

At the end of 2022, AG Barr announced a buy-out of Boost Drinks, with AG Barr supporting Boost Drinks in its continued growth.
