‘Maine’ man heads to Oz


We all know the familiar call - “The Maine man’s here!”

Now Maine Soft Drinks from Ballymoney is heading to Australia.

Some Maine classics such as Cloudy Lime, Pineapple and Bubblegum are making their way across the globe on a two-month journey to Australia.

It’s the first deal outside the UK and Ireland that the Ballymoney family-run business - famed for its door-to-door glass bottle deliveries - has landed.

The fizzy drinks, sold in 500ml plastic bottles, will initially be available in smaller independent retailers in Sydney, with hopes larger supermarkets will take at interest in one of our best-loved brands.
