Steven Facer said: "ACG has ambitious growth plans and I am looking forward to undertaking this challenge and being part of this exciting journey."

"ACG is an exciting brand, with the capsules business already having created a strong foothold in the European market, but there is still a lot of opportunity available and we have some exciting announcements to make in the coming months."
