Packaged water and carbonates consumption declined driven down by diminished purchasing power of consumers. Dairy drinks consumption performed positively with an increase of sales volumes driven by stable retail prices. Consumption of alcoholic beverages retracted driven down by a significant drop in FABs sales which were victims of regional restrictions on circulation imposed by local authorities. The demand for long-life milk opened up the white milk market to new outlets by being suitable for long distance transportation and extensive warehouse storage.
Packaged water consumption declines were driven by the low incomes of consumers driving them to substitute the category with lower cost bulk/HOD water and filtered tap water beverages.
Wine consumption declined in Q1-16 driven down by reduction in available locally produced wines caused by the shortage of wine materials and the high prices of imported materials which were the result of the huge devaluation of Ruble.
Consumption of milk increased in volume this quarter, driven by an expansion of consumer demand in modern retail channels.
Hot coffee showed a flat performance this quarter, driven down by elevated prices on imported coffee which has been boosted by a huge devaluation of the Ruble in the previous year.
