The introduction of sugar taxes in more and more countries as well as consumers who want to explore beverage alternatives that keep the taste but cut the calories have led to many new product developments.

Strawberry, apple, cherry or passion fruit and iced tea are classic flavors of choice - but created with as little sugar additives as possible.

When it comes to beverages, consumers are known to be open for experiments. We see a huge potential in mixtures, especially of fermented drinks such as kombucha with cold-pressed juices. Creative flavor innovations, limited editions and seasonal launches are very popular and offer a wide choice. Mixtures can establish exotic flavors at the market, seasonal products and limited editions for special occasions such as holidays or events offer the opportunity to try out extraordinary formulations.

Soft drinks or alcoholic beverages, energy drinks or coffee: Large parts of the population long for healthier, and clean label versions for many products.
