On-trade Soft Drinks - UK - December 2009
The report focuses on soft drinks bought for consumption in the on-trade, outside of the home.
- Cash-squeezed consumers have been cutting back on eating/drinking out. As a result, sales of on-trade soft drinks have declined by 6% (by value) between 2007 and 2009 in sharp contrast to 2004-2007 when sales grew steadily (8% by value).
- Mintel’s research shows 29 million adults resent paying what they perceive to be very high prices for soft drinks in a pub or bar when they know they can buy it for so much cheaper in shops.
- Pubs, bars and restaurants primarily sell non-diet versions of soft drinks. Yet on-trade outlets are not maximising the potential opportunity as 32 million adults think they should stock a healthier range of soft drinks.
- Eight in ten people prefer to drink soft drinks rather than alcohol at lunchtime.
- The on-trade soft drinks market is dominated by Britvic and Coca Cola Enterprises (CCE) who between them account for 80% of the market (by value).
- Despite struggling for some years in the off-trade, Pepsi (owned by Britvic) is the joint top selling brand (along with Coca Cola) in the on-trade. The brand has benefited from Britvic’s state-of-the-art dispensing technology.
