Walking down the beverage aisle you can’t help but revel in the amount of
daring, unique, and bold new products that line the shelves. There have been a tremendous amount of innovative launches over the years, everything from fermented fascinations to adult premium beverages targeted for the celebratory occasion, and now CBD, hemp, and cannabis-infused beverages.
Our refreshment beverage publication does a deep dive into the three themes we have seen influence refreshment beverages.
- Adult Premium Beverages: Mocktails have made their way into bars and restaurants across North America as consumers are looking for healthier beverages that still make them feel as though they are imbibing.
- Functional Beverages: With health and wellness being the mantras of our society today, brands have taken note of the popularity of functional ingredients and adapted ingredients delivering wellness benefits into their beverages.
- One Size Does NOT Fit All: Across industries, a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach no longer applies, and flavors are no different – instead, it is necessary to find the right flavor for the right consumer.
