In Q1-16, the best performing soft drink categories were sports drinks, enhanced water, packaged water, juice and energy drinks. Dairy drinks noted growth in Q1-16 compared to Q1-15 due to the cancellation of milk quotas which helped spur further development of dairy products. Hot drinks noted a slight growth in Q1-16 compared to Q1-15 driven by increased consumption of hot coffee, due to the expansion of coffee houses and coffee points.
Within alcoholic drinks, the best performances noted were in the cider and FABs categories. Both were driven by developments in leading brands and PL products in Q1-16.
The warm weather, especially in January and February, had a positive impact on the consumption of packaged water.
Within dairy drinks, the best growths noted were in flavoured milk, soymilk and white milk. These categories were driven by developments in the leading brands and also in Private Label brands.
Off-premise consumption also grew, due to the rise in popularity of coffee machines for at-home use, which have become cheaper over recent years.
