Unseasonably high temperatures followed by unseasonably low temperatures have balanced out any major effects of weather conditions on beverage consumption levels in Q1-16. This quarter saw an increase in the number of consumers attending gyms and sports centres, which has contributed to greater volumes of lower sized products. Larger pack sizes have been increasingly available for alcoholic drinks through the use of bag in box packaging. Dairy drinks witnessed contraction in Q1-16, driven by diminishing consumption levels of white milk due to an increasing belief among adult consumers that too much white milk can be unhealthy and should be reduced or partly replaced.
Consumption of packaged water increased in Q1-16, driven by improved consumer confidence, combined with Easter falling early in the year which helped to boost consumption.
Alcoholic drinks sales are quite dependent on-premise consumption. On-premise channels saw steady recovery this quarter that benefitted alcoholic drinks, particularly the consumption of beer and spirits.
The demographic landscape of Spain is having an adverse effect on white milk products: the population is aging rapidly, due to a very low birth rate and a decreasing number of citizens as a result of emigration.
Hot coffee has continued recovering its on-premise consumption, owing to its policy of static retail prices in traditional bars.
