Key Market Issues
Distell owns almost 99% of the market with its two brands; Hunter’s and Savanna.
The cider market is not clearly defined in consumers' minds in South Africa - there is still confusion around what a real cider is, with most South Africans believing that many of the apple ale brands on the market are actually ciders.
Cider in South Africa is very much a drink for both women and men - although it tends to be marketed mainly towards men. It is a small market in the country compared to the giant that beer is. It is an aspirational product targeted to and drunk by higher income groups living in cities. It is priced at a slight premium to beer.
Hunter's and Savanna continued to shine on the global stage - driving much of the company growth for Distell yet again.
Average prices increased in 2012 due to the apple juice shortage and also because of the repeated hikes in the price of petrol, electricity and water. Distell as the dominant player, had to diversify its supply chain by sourcing its supply from new and alternative sources.
2012 was a good year for Hunter's which saw growth in the double-digits for another year running. Marketing has driven the growth of Hunter's in 2012 and this has added dynamism to the category as a whole.
Tell's cider is growing quickly but off a very small base and for now its volumes are negligible.
Double-digit growth is expected to continue in 2013. This will be driven by the Distell brands and also the new entrant, Tells. New packaging formats will also help.
Apple dominates but pear makes an appearance. In 2012 a small player, Tell's from Stellen Fine Wines, introduced the very first pear cider to the South African market.
Tell's is the only brand that is available in a PET bottle with screw off lid (volume currently negligible). Buying a drink in PET bottle is attractive to consumers who are at concerts or events where glass is not permitted.
