Liquid Concentrates Successfully Mix Dosing and On-the-Go Attributes

Why do we increasingly hear about “water enhancers” when we already have “cordials” and “concentrates”? Well, while the product content is almost the same, it is actually more to do with the packaging. Brand owners have been revamping liquid concentrates, and almost created the category entirely in the case of the US, by introducing reduced-sugar versions of their products in small other plastic bottles with dispensing closures – breaking the pack type and size codes in the category. As is customary when a concept takes off, a new term, like “water enhancers”, is used when referring to it. After the brand Mio laid the groundwork for the pack format in the US in 2011, the format has indeed taken off, and it also boasts interesting growth potential to 2019, both within and beyond liquid concentrates.

Onko koivunmahlavedestä kookosveden seuraajaksi?


Listen as MP3

Koivunmahlavettä – koivusta uutettua nestettä, on nautittu Itä-Euroopassa ja Pohjoismaissa jo vuosikymmenten ajan, mutta vasta hiljattain terveysammattilaiset julistivat koivunmahlaveden seuraavaksi ihmetuotteeksi. Koivunmahlavesi, joka kemialliselta koostumukseltaan on verrattavissa kookosveteen, on vähäkalorinen ja sisältää runsaasti vitamiineja ja mineraaleja. Sen suosion kasvua saattavat kuitenkin hidastaa kallis tuotantoprosessi ja lyhyt säilytysaika. Tästä huolimatta koivunmahlavesituotteet voivat kasvattaa markkina-arvoaan, mikäli tuotteita pystytään markkinoimaan riittävästi.

Could Birch Water be the next Coconut Water?


Listen as MP3

Birch water, which is extracted from the liquid absorbed by birch trees, has been consumed by Eastern European and Nordic countries for decades and recently discovered by health enthusiasts who claim it as the next 'miracle product'. Similar in chemical makeup to coconut water, the drink is low in calories and contains essential vitamins and minerals. However the extraction process is tedious and the shelf life is short. If marketed correctly, birch water could go head to head with coconut water.

Is Fructose the new Trans Fats?

Simone_BarokeAnalyst Insight by Simone Baroke - Contributing Analyst

The storm clouds have been brewing over fructose for some time now, and the days when “fructose” sounded better and more natural on a label than “glucose” or simply “sugar” are fast coming to an end. Research, which implicates fructose in the development of chronic conditions, like cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity, is gradually mounting. We ask the question which many industry watchers must be pondering right now, namely whether fructose is destined to share the fate of trans fatty acids (TFAs), whose near-elimination from the human food supply is a very much a work in progress.

Both entirely natural and part of our food supply

There are very few compelling parallels between fructose and trans fats. First of all, both occur naturally in our food supply. Fructose is a natural sugar found in fruit and vegetables, while trans fats feature in meat and dairy foods in small quantities owing to ruminants’ metabolic processes.

As such, neither fructose nor trans fatty acids can be wholly eliminated from the human food supply, and nor do they give cause for health concerns as long as they are consumed as part of the foods in which they are inherent, and provided that these are not eaten in excess.

Doing Business in the Halal Market

The Muslim religion is the second largest and fastest growing religion in the world, with Muslim consumers expected to reach 26 percent of the global population by 2030.

Muslim consumers seek products that cater to their religious needs and comply with Islamic requirements: from halal production process to halal labelling and packaging. The lack of permissible offerings has led to a surge in demand, as Muslims grow hungry for trendy products and services adapted to their lifestyle.

The new entity will be called Coca-Cola European Partners PLC, with TCCC holding an 18% stake, with remaining holdings divided between CCE and CCIP.
