Lucozade Ribena Suntory are seeking approaches that will improve the retention of carbon dioxide in sugar sweetened drinks containing at least 2% sugar.



As a business, we are continually striving to enhance the experience associated with consuming our beverages and their overall quality.


Carbonation plays an important role within our portfolio and plays a key role in the enjoyment of a drink. Ways of enhancing or optimising carbonation and technologies that can help retain carbonation throughout the shelf-life of the product are sought.  

Key success Criteria

Approaches that have:

  • Some evidence that they will enhance carbon dioxide retention. This could be a basic technology that has been tested in a lab environment or a more mature approach
  • The potential to improve carbon dioxide retention in sugar-sweetened drinks containing at least 2% sugar
  • A time to market of approximately 3 years or less
Possible Approaches

Lucozade Ribena Suntory is open to all possible approaches including early-stage ideas and approaches that are more mature.
