Hot & Cold Drinks Expertise

No Fear was voted Best Energy Drink Launch of 2010 and features the UK’s first resealable can


Aimia Foods has a unique wealth of experience and specialist capabilities in hot and cold drinks.  We manufacture, market and distribute many leading brands including No Fear, Galaxy Hot Chocolate, Weight Watchers Hot Chocolate, PG Tips and Knorr.  In recent years, Aimia has developed many of its own brands including Café Nueva, Milfresh, Juicebreak and Milkbreak, which have become leaders in their respective fields







Galaxy & Maltesers Hot Chocolate exclusively produced and distributed by Aimia Foods, Galaxy is the UKs second best selling instant hot chocolate brand.




Aimia is in a unique position amongst UK manufacturers in being large enough and financially strong enough to invest in a full service offering, whilst remaining small and agile enough to react and implement decisions rapidly.  This is facilitated by the recruitment of specialists from leading FMCG business to head our key business functions of Sales, Marketing and Research & Development.








Working closely with the manufacturing side, the R&D team develops new recipes and products and is on top of the latest legislative and food science developments. The marketing team comprises brand management, and dedicated packaging specialists, a model that allows brands to enter fully licensed agreements with Aimia in total confidence.




Juicebreak was the UK’s first school nutritional compliant dilutable juice drink to launch after the SFT rules came into effect in 2007



Separate teams for Vending, Retail, Foodservice, Cash & Carry and Outsourcing each deliver a focused approach that balances a forward-thinking product development funnel with the varied needs of customers in different markets.  In so doing we successfully market our global big brands and sector specific products – like Juicebreak in the cost sector.








Cafe Nueva Range includes products for Retail, Foodservice and Vending and incorporates the first ever triple certified freeze dried coffee (Fairtrade, Rainforest Alliance and Organic certified).


It is the combination of Aimia’s manufacturing capability and product development intelligence, combined with customer service that marks it as an ideal partner for companies seeking brand partnership through licensing or a full outsourced production or development solution.









Designed with teenagers, for teenagers Zing is a fast growing ‘stealth health drink’ combining edgy styling with wholesome goodness.



We work with the consumer backwards and spend time and money making our products just right.  Zing is a healthy drink for teens; only thing is, we know this market is notoriously difficult to please and that’s why we developed Zing from a series of drawings to finished packaging carefully consulting with more than 100 teenagers.  We leave no stone unturned.







Milfresh, already the UK’s best selling granulated milk for beverage systems is now packed in a re-sealable pouch for greater freshness.




Health is on everyone’s minds.  Milfresh is a premium quality, fat free,  granulated skimmed milk, made from real milk.    The introduction of Milfresh by Aimia in 2007 has seen a boom in better quality, more authentic and healthier vending drinks emerge.












Pour Moi is a successful coffee shop concept for vending.


We don’t just make things; we share our knowledge through intensive training courses, internally and externally with customers, and we create concepts too.  Pour Moi (right) became the UKs first coffee shop concept for vending, with 12oz paper cups, sip thru lids and even flavoured syrups.  It has been a key driver in the direction of the vending market.
