Key Market Issues
- Belarus: The image of fruit powders was seriously damaged in 1990 when the market was full of low quality and even fake products.
- Lithuania: Due to improving economy consumers will continue to switch to other soft drinks
- Macedonia: Major competition from rtd still drinks and the closure of the main distribution channel, traditional retailers, as well as the poor allocation of shelf space in modern retailers has also contributed to the decline.
- Russia: There has been a rapid expansion of recently launched local brands mainly due to the strong appeal of the functional features of the products, which are enhanced with 13 vitamins and essential minerals, including calcium, magnesium, iron and iodine.
- Private Label is not big in this category as its cost is so low generally even for branded although it does play a part.
- Bosnia: The fruit powder category is perceived as healthier than some other soft beverages, due to the addition of vitamins.
- Russia: Previously this category was mainly populated by imported brands, however recently the category has seen a shift in favor of locally-produced, low priced, fortified with vitamins which are distributed via the institution channel and were initially supported by the federal government.
- Bosnia: As a traditional beverage, having been in the market for decades, fruit powders are widely present in the traditional trade
- Bulgaria: Fruit powders were one of the best performing categories in 2011. The continuing economic crisis led to a further reduction in consumer purchasing power and thus some consumers were drawn to the fruit powders category with its lowest average price.
- Orange is the predominate flavor across East Europe followed by lemon.
