Biggest challenge for 2009: Paul Burton, joint managing director: "Times like these make consumers, even those who have had greater resources stored up

We are still innovating and investing both in NPD and television and sponsorship -based promotional support, both of which have served us well since the launch of St Helier. We do not have the mega budgets of some of the giant drinks producers, but, as one of the country's most dynamic independent drinks companies, we have shown that we are able to move quickly, think creatively and be responsive to consumer demand."
