Functional and Health-Enhancing Juices: 7 Key Trends
New Nutrition Business, September 2007, Pages: 121
This new report reveals the massive opportunities for functional and health-enhancing juices, based on a detailed analysis of successful – and unsuccessful – healthy juice brands.
Digestive health: fast-emerging, behind superfruits, as the single most promising trend for the juice industry. In Europe and Japan probiotic and fibre-enhanced juice brands are already successful on a digestive health platform - two companies have quietly built digestive brands with over $50 million in annual sales - and there is clearly massive untapped potential for digestive health juices.
Packaging innovation, brand differentiation and premium pricing: the success of brands like Unilever's Knorr Vie, Hero's Fruit2Day, XanGo and Pom Wonderful shows that packaging innovation has to be central to health-enhancing juice strategy and it enables both super-premium pricing and strong differentiation.
Intrinsic healthfulness: juices with added ingredients for heart health don’t sell on either side of the Atlantic – but ones with a heart health benefit intrinsic to the fruit are blockbuster successes. Brands based on marketing the intrinsic healthfulness of fruit, most notably Innocent, Europe’s biggest and fastest-growing smoothie brand, are earning super-premium prices – 80%-300% more than regular juices – and still growing fast.
Beauty, energy and weight management: a handful of companies are pioneering these new opportunities for profitable growth.
