As consumers have switched to healthier and more varied beverages, carbonates consumption in general, and cola in particular, has been eroded by the steady expansion in alternative soft drinks, from iced/RTD tea and coffee drinks to packaged water, sport drinks and energy drinks. However, industry investments in healthier alternatives in the form of lower calorie products have so far met with little success. Indeed, diet soft drinks have been declining more quickly than regular for several years now and we expect that trend will continue to identify more palatable sweetener combinations than the current offerings. Flavored milk is likely to record growth, following a global trend, while fermented milk and soymilk are anticipated to grow due to their healthy credentials.
