A & C Pace Ltd was established in 1966 as a Maltese Soft Drink manufacturing and bottling firm in Zejtun. It is best known for its Kitty Kola Beverages. Kitty Kola was a carbonated cola-flavoured, caffeinated soft drink. The Kitty Kola Co. Ltd. was founded in London in 1948, while the trade mark was applied for in association with Messrs. Atkinson, Ainslie, Childs-Clarke & O'Donovan Advocates, Mombasa, Kenya in 1953.

The cola was first produced in Sweden that same year and bottled by five different firms. Despite its original popularity, greater demand for rival colas led to eventual discontinuation. Kitty Cola was relaunched by Berga Bruk, another Swedish firm, in 2017, based on a new recipe and accompanied by Kitty Kool Lemonade and ginger-flavoured Kitty Krazy. Kitty Cola was originally manufactured locally in the 1960s by the Stars Coy. Ltd of Birkirkara. After this firm ceased operations, the license was re-acquired by A & C Pace Ltd of Zejtun. We are still corroborating more information regarding this firm and its beverages.
