Other finance options were too rigid


Kriya Lending

How The Craft Drink Co used invoice finance to stabilise cash flow

When Richard opened a local delicatessen and farm shop he saw an opportunity to curate and sell a collection of local drinks into the wider community. Soon the Craft Drink Company was born. At first they represented six great brands. Now, five years later, they represent over 110 carefully selected local, regional and craft producers.

Why choose Kriya?

The Craft Drink Co already had a development loan and overdraft with their bank. These had been very helpful in the early days but they had become too rigid, failing to grow alongside the business.

Richard had first looked into other, more traditional, invoice finance providers. Ultimately, he felt that Kriya’s tech-driven solutions were quicker and easier to use – something very important to him as a busy entrepreneur.

“I came to appreciate that invoice finance from Kriya would be the best form of finance for us as a growing business,” Richard says. “Fundamentally, it’s about being on an upward growth curve year in, year out, and having a facility that will enable us to do that. Because invoice finance is related to our sales ledger, our facility will grow with us as a business.”

Crate Brewery benefits from Kriya Lending

Crate Brewery

London-based craft beer brewery - the Crate story: Meeting in a bar over a few beers and a couple of pizzas, the founders realised they shared a love for both of these things and wanted to make their own. Less than two weeks later they had signed a lease on Hackney Wick’s iconic White Building, the space Crate Brewery still calls home today. Fast forward to 2019 and Crate has a second (much bigger) brewery and distribution warehouse onsite. They produce 1 million pints of beer each year and make an impressive array of pizzas every day. Just 7 years on from opening the business, they’ve self-funded their growth to nearly £5 million.
