Ribena started life in the 1930s at Bristol-based HW Carter & Co, where it was manufactured as a syrup for making milkshakes and named after the Latin for 'flcurrant', Ribes negrum.
As a milk additive, it failed; however, its high vitamin C content (a standard glass provides the entire recommended daily intake) meant that it began to be used as a cordial in hospitals, maternity homes and, during the war, schools, where it was dispensed free by the Ministry of Food.
Today, Ribena is one of the UK's biggest-selling brands (the 13th-biggest, higher than Pepsi and KitKat), and 300 million bottles are sold in 20 countries.

 GlaxoSmithKline: Ribena ripe for superfruit overhaul - Drinks Business Review
The new blueberry squash and ready-to-drink varieties of Ribena, which will be aimed primarily at women between the ages of 18 and 30, both aim to tap into this growing market.
And while the Blackcurrant Foundation, which represents UK flcurrant growers, claims to be unfazed by the rise of the blueberry, it is no coincidence that their first ever marketing initiative to promote the health benefits of the flberry will coincide with the launch of the new Ribena variant in Summer 2006.
Should the popularity of blueberry Ribena grow at a pace similar to general sales of the fruit, the 45 British flcurrant growers who rely on sales of the original Ribena variant may lose out in the long term, as a berry glut would lead to a drop in prices.
