AG Barr posts rise in Q1 sales

  • British soda maker AG Barr posted a rise in sales in the first four months of this year on Tuesday.

    Total revenue was up by 2.4 percent compared with the same period last year.

    Meanwhile, the Competition Commission is expected to make its decision on a merger between AG Barr and Britvic in the coming weeks.

    AG Barr makes Irn Bru, Tizer and Rubicon while Britvic makes Tango, Robinsons, J2O and sells PepsiCo brands under an exclusive licence.

    Last year, the two firms announced a merger but the deal was referred to the competition authorities.

    The Competition Commission’s report is expected in early June.
