Lucozade is an umbrella name for a series of energy and sports drinks that are produced by GlaxoSmithKline. Lucozade (alongside Ribena) is currently being produced at the Royal Forest Factory in Coleford, Gloucestershire, in the Forest of Dean.

History

In 1953, a factory for the production of Lucozade products was opened in Brentford, England, which, until 2004, had an iconic sign seen on the side of the M4 motorway (now in Gunnersbury ParkMuseum).  Local people were reportedly upset when the sign was removed. A new and identical sign replaced the old sign in 2010.  Lucozade has a research arm known as The Lucozade Sports Science Academy, which has been carrying out nutritional research for over 30 years. It works in partnership with leading universities, coaches, nutritionists and sports professionals.
