The beverage segment is extremely vibrant and offers an immense range of trends to explore like low and no calorie alternatives for sugar drinks, exotic mixtures as well as the consumers’ desire for health and well-being. Our experts at Brenntag Food & Nutrition can guide you through the vast field of possibilities to develop innovative products.

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. According to a study of market researchers of Innova, 31 percent of US consumers have increased their purchase of flavored water. Strawberry, apple, cherry or passion fruit and iced tea are classic flavors of choice - but created with as little sugar additives as possible. Brenntag can be your partner to supply with clever formulations that fulfil all demanded requirements.

Time for adventures

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 extensive choices for consumers. 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 test extraordinary formulations.

Whether its soft drinks, alcoholic beverages, energy drinks or coffee, large parts of the population long for healthy and clean label versions of many products. The demand for fiber-fortified drinks for example is on the increase and protein enriched is on the rise as well. Brenntag Food and Nutrition provides the know-how and in-house development work to revolutionize your formulation and give your drinks all the features you demand.
