The beer market has fared well in terms of value as demand for specialty and craft style beers continues. White milk sales were relatively flat in Q1-16 despite the mild start to the year. Farm gate prices remain very low since the ending of the quota system in April last year. Hot tea will also be helped by the rise of coffee shops due to the increased availability that coffee shops offer. Denmark had a late spring in 2015 and with conditions milder this year, results for this weather sensitive segment in Q1-16 have been positive with an overall growth recorded.
Spirits and wines have increased as a result of the early Easter. Wine will have been helped this year by the fact that the tax has not increased like last year. Price remains an important driver for spirits sales.
Despite the low prices of white milk, milk alternatives continue to climb upwards but from a very small base.
On-premise sales of hot coffee are being helped by the emergence of a coffee shop boom.
Results for still packaged water show an even high growth whilst carbonated packaged water is less weather sensitive and results have been more stable with a low growth.
