Vimto fizz into new markets with our connections



Nichols plc began in 1908 in Manchester. John Noel Nichols created a herbal tonic with a secret recipe, giving its drinkers ‘Vim and Vigour’. The demand for this unique ‘Vim-tonic’ grew rapidly.

Today, Vimto is a flagship brand enjoyed in over 73 countries. The group’s diverse portfolio spans carbonated, still, post-mix and frozen drinks.

Nichols plc were looking to expand into new markets and needed help making local connections. So, we introduced them to our digital platform called Santander Navigator.

Santander Navigator saved them time finding the right people to speak to. This included a potential new distributor, who was able to share deeper insights into the market. Nichols plc were also able to benefit from further support via trade checklists, events, and training information.

The team took time to understand our business, connected us to new market contacts and facilitated introductions. Santander Navigator is a great tool for businesses looking to expand internationally, via country insights, network events and connections across their global partner network.
