Retaining our crown as market leader

Brecon Carreg has maintained its position as the number 1 brand in Wales with a value market share of 19%*. That’s over 4% bigger than the number two positioned brand and almost 17% larger than the second Welsh brand. Sales Manager Richard Cook says “Having being with Brecon Carreg for 16 years it’s fantastic to see the brand receive the recognition it deserves within the market place. This wouldn’t be possible without the support of the buying teams we work with and we look forward to building on our success in the future.” * IRI Market Data September 2018

Introducing the new 330ml sports cap

Available from February, our new 330ml sports cap will replace the 300ml bottles. The improved bottle design with 'Brecon' label ensures mass appeal from young children and older adults looking for hydration on the go. There will be no price change which provides consumers with even better value.

Our new charity of the year - Welsh Hearts

We’re very proud to announce that Welsh Hearts are our chosen charity for 2019. Over the next 12 months, we’ll be working closely with the charity and fundraising as much as we can to place defibrillators in areas of Wales that need them the most as well as providing vital CPR training sessions. The charity was nominated by a member of staff who has a personal connection with them. As a team, we’re proud to be able to work together to raise awareness and vital funds for a cause so close to our hearts.

Sustainability – celebrating our successes in 2018

Sustainability is one of the strategic pillars of Brecon Carreg. To secure our position as a leader, we have developed ambitious sustainability targets, shared in our latest sustainability report. Our efforts have not gone unnoticed and we were thrilled to be awarded as the winner of the BITC Welsh Government Responsible SME Business of the Year for 2018. We were also independently accredited by the Ethical Company Organisation for the third consecutive year and our ‘Run Refuel Recycle’ campaign reached over 1 million people in Wales with our campaign which resulted in record-breaking recycling rates at the Cardiff Half Marathon.

Do we need to get out more?

Well… we’ve decided that everyone does! As part of our commitment to highlighting the importance of good hydration and healthy lifestyles, we’ll soon be announcing our latest campaign. We’ll be encouraging people of all ages and abilities to take the time to get outside to find their own adventure. Whether it’s feeding the ducks in the local park, climbing a mountain, walking the dogs, running a marathon or having a picnic somewhere special – every day can be an adventure.
