About Us

Vimto Cordial was first introduced to the Middle East in 1928 by the Aujan family. Vimto has been synonymous with Ramadan for nearly a century and has become a family tradition and legacy routed in the Khaleeji heritage. Vimto Cordial is Ramadan’s unique and irreplaceable drink of choice on the Iftar table which is prepared and consumed by families across all generations. Vimto Cordial success story and utmost consumer trust led to the demand of extending into a RTD (Ready To Drink) range, under both the Fruit Drink and Sparkling categories as well as Vimto Slush, all made from Vimto Cordial original recipe and catering to all year-round occasions and needs.

Our Cordial Story

Our Cordial Story

In 1908, Mr. John Noel Nichols developed a herbal tonic providing strength and energy “Vim and Vigour” Vimtonic, as it was originally named and soon became simply Vimto with its unique and refreshing taste. Mr. Nichols started producing and selling Vimto the new product in the city of Manchester in the United Kingdom, and then spread the product with the expansion of trade and sailors from China to India, Middle East and North Africa (MENA).


The Aujan family started bringing Vimto to the Gulf region in 1928 for the first time and the product entered the markets of Bahrain, Kuwait, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Iraq, United Arab Emirates, Oman, Jordan, Egypt and Levant.

One generation after another, the Aujan and Nichols families continued developing the delicious and refreshing drink to the markets of the Gulf. That was until 1978 where Vimto started to be produced in Dammam (KSA) in Aujan’s factory, which was one of the first beverage production plants in the region.

One generation over another Vimto Cordial soon became synonymous with Ramadan, a thirst quenching iftar ritual associated with providing a rewarding boost soothing the body after a day of fasting.

It has become the unique and irreplaceable drink of choice on the iftar table, and it is prepared and consumed by families across all generations.

VIMTO Cordial’s success story and utmost consumer trust led to the demand of extending into a RTD (Ready To Drink) range, together with the strong partnership of Aujan and Nichols which succeeded in creating numerous varieties of the Vimto Fruit Drink and Sparkling ready to drink range. This is in addition to Vimto Slush, also made from Vimto Cordial original recipe and catering to all year round occasions and needs.

Vimto Cordial in 2022 continues its strong innovation success and introduces for the first time ever in the region and possibly the whole world Vimto Cordial ZERO, which is Sugar and Calories Free with No Artificial Colours, fulfilling a huge consumer need.
