Evolution of Australia’s beverage industry
In the past few years, Australia’s beverage industry has seen a significant trend away from sugar-sweetened soft drinks. This downturn follows the worldwide demand for low- and no-sugar drink alternatives. This trend – as well as the current Covid-19 pandemic – has a massive impact on the country’s PET use.
Varied developments in the beverage industry
In 2019, the demand for non-alcoholic beverages fell by 5.8 percent per household, causing several market observers to hope for stabilization in 2020. The changes, however, to everyday life due to COVID-19 measures have also shaped developments in the beverage industry.
The primary focus of sustainability in beverage production
Under the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, hygiene and health shape consumers’ perception and actions. However, sustainable products with resource-friendly production remain important to people, as well.
The potential of sustainable packaging
It is not only sustainable production that is increasingly coming into focus within the beverage and food industry: especially among manufacturers of non-alcoholic beverages, the focus is increasingly on the sustainability potential of packaging.
The German wine industry during the pandemic
Wine sales via catering services have taken a nosedive due to the coronavirus pandemic, especially during lockdown – a great shock for the German wine market. The German wine industry, however, is using this opportunity, to reinvent itself and is breaking new ground in online retail.
The Indian spirits industry
India is one of the largest producers and consumers of spirits globally. Popularly known as a whiskey market, India is one of the largest spirits markets on the basis of volume. Though it is driven primarily by whiskey growth, other subsegments like brandy, rum, vodka and gin have also been posting steady numbers in the last few years.
