“Many beverages are pigeonholed to a degree by the times of day at which they are most commonly used. Brands could increase consumption frequency by positioning their products as suitable for a wider range of occasions and locations, such as milk with meals or juice drinks instead of sports drinks at the gym. Similarly, healthy non-alcoholic beverages such as milk, juice, and drinkable yogurt can be better positioned as snacks.” – Marla Commons, Category Manager, Food & Drink Reports
This report looks at the following areas:
Consumers are most likely to drink a wide range of non-alcoholic beverages at home rather than away from home, limiting the number and type of locations and occasions upon which they drink them. While beverages such as milk, juice, coffee, soft drinks, and bottled water enjoy relatively high penetration, daily consumption is significantly lower than general consumption of these beverages.
Much of this limitation is fueled by perceptions of specific drinks as best suited for only one meal time—such as milk or juice for breakfast—which hampers their potential for use during other parts of the day or with other types of meals. Additionally, consumers often associate specific drinks with certain characteristics that also limit their occasions for use. For example, while seven in 10 respondents perceive milk as healthy, far fewer associate it with refreshment or functionality. Brands of non-alcoholic beverages must do more to position their products as suitable for a wider range of occasions to encourage more frequent consumption.
