Expert analysis from a specialist in the field
Written by Kiti Soininen, a leading analyst in the Food & Drink sector, her extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.
The soft drinks market has faced a challenging period as sugar has come under public spotlight since 2014. These drinks have, however, retained a substantial place on consumers’ menus. The significant challenge ahead is how to respond to the current scrutiny of single-use plastic packaging, in terms of both government initiatives and legislation and changes in consumer behaviour.
