On the heels of Coca-Cola’s 16.7% acquisition of Monster Energy, speculation regarding the potential for Monster’s international expansion is high. In the agreement, Coke traded its energy brands (and markets) for Monster’s non-energy brands. Monster also agreed to make Coca-Cola is preferred global distribution partner, while Coca Cola agreed to let Monster operate as its only energy play. Global off-trade value sales of energy drinks have slowed in recent years, but the category’s forecast US$12 billion absolute off-trade value growth from 2013-2018 bodes well for both parties. Furthermore, the expansion of energy functionality into categories such as RTD tea, juice, carbonates, and bottled water favours manufacturers able to reliably generate new flavours and formulations. As Monster begins its international expansion in earnest, the combination of Coca-Cola’s speed to market and Monster’s knack for new products could play well in a global landscape where product lifecycles are becoming shorter all the time.

View Sarah Boumphrey's profile on LinkedIn


Yesterday’s dismal eurozone Q2 GDP results appear to show the fragile recovery derailed. Real GDP growth for the bloc was flat at 0.0% quarter-on-quarter. The most notable results were the negative growth in the eurozone’s largest economy – Germany – and also it’s third largest Italy – which is now in the midst of a triple dip recession. Meanwhile, France – the second largest economy – saw flat growth.

Phillips and Braun are on the forefront of toothbrush technology, with Braun introducing products such as the Oral-B Pro 6000 SmartSeries, which monitors brushing times and habits and sends information to a user’s smartphone via Bluetooth. Innovations in the toothpaste market include Colgate’s sugar acid neutralizing toothpaste and Unilever’s Regenerate, which claims to rebuild lost enamel. Preventative care is becoming an important facet in oral care and products that assist consumers in these goals will perform well in the next five years.

HBA Global 2014 Recap: First Aid Beauty's Success in South Korea

To successfully enter a new country, beauty companies need to be aware of the retailing and economic conditions as well as the needs of the consumers in that country. US-based skin care company First Aid Beauty (FAB) is a successful example, performing well in the ultra-competitive South Korean beauty market. FAB markets its products as medicated and safe for skin which appeals to South Korean women who purchase dermo-cosmetic brands such as Avene. FAB also promotes their products as hot-selling in the US, providing extra cachet. FAB sells its products in local Korean health and beauty retailer Olive Young, which promotes to young Korean women.

Grass-Fed Beef Faces a Few Bumps in the Road

Simone_BarokeAnalyst Insight by Simone Baroke - Consulting Analyst

At a time when the US beef market is struggling with declining volumes and consumers are starting to care increasingly about ethics, sustainability, animal welfare and nutrition, differentiation offers a way forward for beef producers. The emergence of grass-fed beef is a clear manifestation of this trend. However, before grass-fed has any chance of becoming a mainstream choice, several hurdles need to be overcome. Sourcing is one of them, as illustrated by the current supply troubles experienced by rapidly growing fast food chain Chipotle Mexican Grill.

Chipotle Leads the Way

Chipotle Mexican Grill has been in the news again this spring, not only for defending its drive to exclusively offer grass-fed beef in all of its restaurants but also for deciding to source this product from the distant shores of Australia. According to Chipotle founder Steve Ells, due to the number of its outlets having mushroomed from 800 back in 2008 to the current 1,600, domestic supplies were no longer sufficient.

In line with the company’s much publicised “food with integrity” philosophy, it is committed to serving “responsibly raised” beef, free from hormones and antibiotics and raised with high animal welfare standards. And the strategy seems to be working so far. Our consumer foodservice data show that Chipotle’s sales rose from US$1.3 billion in 2008 to US$3.2 billion in 2013, enabling it to jump from 35th to 17th in the chained consumer foodservice rankings over that period. However, by sourcing its beef from abroad, it may be committing a serious faux pas, a point which we shall return to shortly.

Is Global Grocery Retailing Getting More Concentrated?

Global Grogery Retailing

While the move towards more concentration in grocery retailing is apparent in most markets, either developed or emerging countries, this trend cannot be seen at a global level. This reflects that the largest retailers, notably the top three global players, remain highly dependent on mature, developed markets, so that their sales growth lags behind that of local players in emerging markets. The saturation of large store formats may undermine expansion prospects for some of the largest players.
