CEO Ben Clarke said: "The past two years have seen progressive changes at Burton's, as we've transformed ourselves into a successful and dynamic UK manufacturing business. The rebrand, as part of this transformation, represents not only our past achievements, but also our future ambitions as we continue to go from strength to strength."
