RTDs sector growth will be driven by new formats and product innovation
That's the view of Halewood International's marketing director Graham Oak, interviewed in IWSR's/just-drinks' forthcoming Global ready-to-drink (RTD) and ready-to-serve (RTS) market review. He believes that four sub-sectors have emerged within the RTD market – ‘crisp refreshment’ with brands such as Moscow Mule and Smirnoff Ice; fruit refreshment with Bacardi Breezer and Reef as examples; prepared cocktails and pre-mixed cans. He says: “Over the next 12 months we will see dramatic changes within the RTD category in terms of margin/value delivery, recruitment of new consumers driven by new formats and product innovation.”
The category is showing signs of further reinvention with the move by the major spirits companies and independent labels into the pre-mixed or ready-to-serve (RTS) cocktail arena. The great strength of the RTD and RTS sectors is that there is a broad spectrum of participants from the wine, brewing and spirits industries. This ensures a tremendous critical mass of investment around the category.
This latest report from IWSR/just-drinks provides a global review and analysis of the RTDs & RTS categories. With a complete data overview, interviews with the leading players and unique textual analysis explaining the reasons behind the numbers, this report is essential reading to anyone involved or affected by these innovative categories.
