MacMillan Coffee Morning
Touch does Bake Off
27 September 2022
The team took part in MacMillan Coffee Morning this year to raise money and awareness around a great cause. We took this opportunity to not only raise money but to show off our hidden baking skills (or not) and rate the bakes. Well done to Senior Designer - Joe Smith who came out on top (in our internal bake off) with his perfectly baked bread loaf. Hopefully Joe will decide to bake many more loaves in the weeks to come.

Touch x Ballygown x Britvic
The Touch team is delighted to see Ireland’s own Iconic Water Brand, Ballygowan has hit the shelves recently with a new bottle design created by Touch. Working in conjunction with the forward-thinking team at BRITVIC PLC, the new lightweight design and addition of nitrogen filling on the line means that it has achieved the 20% target average weight reduction across the range in addition to rPET - delivering on both design and function as per the brief.
The move is part of a drive for 100% sustainability across the business, under Britvic Ireland’s Healthier People, Healthier Planet Strategy.
