Bundaberg Brewed Drinks Pty Ltd is an Australian family-owned business that brews non-alcoholic beverages. The company was established in Bundaberg in 1960 as a bottling and fermenting business. In 1968, Mr. and Mrs. Fleming (senior) along with Cliff and Lee Fleming, bought the business, then known as Electra Breweries. From then on, it was run by mother, father, son and daughter. Over the years, the company has seen growth in sales and brand recognition, both domestically and internationally. They export to over 44 countries across the globe and they are most known for their ginger beer and other carbonated beverages.
