Key Market Issues
- The carbonates category found itself on the wrong side of the health and wellness trend and suffered a decline of close to 14% in Q2-13, the worst quarterly contraction in many years
- The popularity and affordability of JNSD drinks are the driver for the decline of fruit powders volumes
- The key reason for the energy drinks slowdown is mainly the poor performance of leading brands, which are losing share to smaller brands that are less expensive
- The negative impact of the recent ban in retail which prohibits selling alcoholic beverages at night from 10pm to 6am is yet to be seen but will be in the coming months
- Unless a local company starts producing a soymilk product, the category is like to remain small in the future
- Packaged water benefits from a healthy image and it is more convenient for consumers than bulk/HOD water
- The juice category has benefitted from advertising including advertising for nectars
- The main reason for increased white milk consumption was the positive impact of the School Milk Project on parents' perceptions towards milk consumption
- Even during the hot summer months hot tea is highly popular in Turkey, it's the most popular commercial beverage in the country
- The key reason for the high cider growth has been the increased number of imported products available
