Looking for a funding solution?

The food and beverage industry is one of the UK’s biggest, most important industries which includes a wide range of large and small enterprises. The beverage industry on its own includes hundreds of businesses involved in the manufacturing, processing, and distribution of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Despite the change in the demand for non-alcoholic beverages, with an increasing number of people becoming more conscious about their drinking habits, the market is expected to grow annually by 2.92% (CAGR 2021-2025). This shift in the trend has led to businesses investing good money into improving existing formulations and developing newer, healthier non-alcoholic drinks that can continue to drive the demand.

The soft drinks industry has been under tremendous pressure since 2018 when the government levied a ‘Sugar Tax’ in order to tackle childhood obesity in the country. This has forced non-alcoholic drinks manufacturers to up their innovation game and develop low-sugar drinks that taste the same as the original. Another challenge that soft drinks producers face is the necessity to meet the demand for sustainable and recyclable bottles and packaging to ensure that their product is not harmful to the environment. All of these problems and challenges can only be overcome by conducting R&D to find out new and innovative ways of producing non-alcoholic drinks. Businesses within this industry are almost always involved in research and development, but not all of them are aware of how they could be eligible to receive substantial cashback through the government’s R&D Tax credit scheme.

R&D is always expensive and requires considerable finance in order to conduct it from start to finish. So if you have spent a good sum behind the development of an innovative range of non-alcoholic beverages, Datafox can help you receive R&D Tax relief. The following areas are considered to be eligible:

  • Developing new or improved products, processes, or software
  • Improving the taste, colour, or nutritional content of the beverage
  • Using new and healthy ingredients and combinations
  • Reducing sugar or caffeine content without impairing the taste
  • Improving shelf life
  • Eliminating artificial preservatives and additives
  • Developing new software for improved production and distribution
  • Using new and improved, eco-friendly packaging materials and techniques
  • Developing new methods for minimising contamination, wastage, and spoilage
