Our insights of people preferences for beverages from all around the world
- Natural with a clean label and trusted source
Consumers are very conscious when they buy a drink. They tend to go for natural as much as they can and they prefer when the ingredient list is short. It also seems crucial to buy a trusted brand knowing where it is produced and where the ingredients come from. Over the last 5 years, about 25% of all new launches in non-alcoholic beverages showed a natural claim.
- Health & Nutrition
Consumers want to feel good from the inside and from the outside without using tablets or medicines and that’s why they are keen on drinking coconut water, pomegranate & cranberry drinking yoghurt and natural juices. The number of new beverages launches in Asia Pacific with a functional claim has increased by 70% over the last 5 years.
- Attractive drinks to share with the community
With everyday life habits, when one goes to a coffee shop, they want their Frappuccino to taste and look good! Next thing they do after paying, is taking of photo of the drink and sharing it with their community on Instagram, Facebook, or WeChat! Social media is a key media in Asia Pacific and drinks have to be attractive and innovative.
- Value for money and experience
Consumers are ready to pay more for a smoothie if it will give them all the nutrients. It won’t be on a daily basis but they enjoy the experience and the “good-for-me” feel. They are keen on discovering new drinks every now and then (and, of course, sharing it online with family, friends and colleagues!).

The trend is exploding in the natural and organic segment as, by 2020, sales of natural and organic food are expected to represent 14% of total U.S. food sales.

- Coloring Foodstuff, off to conquer the West!
North America represents already 30% of the global natural food colors market. The trend of attractiveness for natural colors is getting stronger over time at an increasing pace thanks to the development of color options for blue, green and red color.

It seems little but the trend is growing fast with a risen of sales of 11% to a record $43.3 billion in 2015, outpacing the overall food market’s growth rate of 3%.

- Vegetables can also be sweet!
With 55% of people making a conscious effort to eat as many vegetables as possible, “greens” are becoming the new stars in our plates, showing up in new categories like juice, snack bars, yogurt and breakfast cereals. Transitioning from savory to sweet, vegetables, allied with fruits, make great new tastes and flavor profiles such as combos with tomato, cucumber, carrot, celery, ginger and beet root.
- Sustainability: for my health and the planet’s
Aware of what they eat but also of their impacts on environment, consumers please to think of themselves as exemplary citizens, especially when it comes to the act of buying. Driven by various motivations such as food safety, product integrity and sustainability, they become suspicious due to a spate of food recalls in North America. Thus, trust in matter of ingredients, their sources and their quality is fundamental. New products that are conceived through more sustainable processes are viewed to benefit the common good – especially in the food and beverage industry – motivating consumer purchases.
