Profitable Trends that are Shaking Up the Beverage Industry

What will the world of beverages be like in the coming years? With new products coming in everyday, there is a need for entrepreneurs to find their market and know if the beverage they plan to sell, carry and distribute has the potential for longevity and to be profitable. When does a trend become worth investing in? And what trends have the power to pull industrial infrastructure their way? Let’s take a look at beverage trends that will make a mark in the coming years, and which ones will fail to take off.

Coconut

coconuts-1-1533802

Coconut in oil format has been around for many years, is known as a powerhouse of nutrition and has a high content of saturated fat, most of which is lauric acid. It has antibacterial and anti-viral components that make it an excellent choice for anyone looking to improve brain health and mental acuity. In terms of uses, the possibilities are almost endless, from a hair conditioner to cooking ingredient. Coconut, after all, delivers amino acids that create that savory (umami) flavor in food.

Coconut water, however, is going to be the next isotonic beverage. It has a very high potassium content, a mineral that is the driver of fluid replenishment. It is also natural and organic, making it a healthier choice.

HPP/Cold Pressed Beverage

hppcold-pressed-beverageHPP stands for high hydrostatic pressure processing where cold pressed juice goes into a chamber with a pressure at approximately 87,000 lbs per square inch and then compresses. During the decompression, the cell wall of the bacteria fractures creating shelf life. This results in bottled products that, 45 or 60 days after bottling, maintain density of nutritional value, great characteristics and flavor.

There are concerns, however, about using HPP with low-acid products, such as coconut water and nut milk, as it is unsure if the process is a sufficient kill step. There are recommendations, however, to use an acidifying agent, such as a citrus element, to achieve the appropriate pH levels.

HPP is a long-term trend that will have a “very strong place in production”. In another 10 years, thermal pasteurization will become just a small percentage of the overall juice production.

Cold Brew Coffee

cold-brew-coffeeCold brew coffee is predicted to be worth millions of dollars of business. This is mainly due to the fact that the beverage is punchier, but is lower in acid, higher in flavor and higher in polyphenolic activity. Moreover, there is a now a vigilant following of cold brew coffee, mostly comprising of young people. This particular trend is not something that will fall as quickly as it has risen. It is a scalable option.

New changes will also come to cold brew coffee. It will soon come with grass-fed cow milk, protein, sparking and nitro, MCT oils/various fats added, varying strengths and roasts, coffee varietals, and packaging formats.

Bone Broth

bone-brothAmong the sellable trends in beverages, bone broth is said to be the most scalable. In fact, it is believed to go from $0 to $600M by 2020. This is mainly because bone broth brings something healthy, nutritious and remarkable to the table. It has an unrivaled nutritional profile that would sell big to people looking for a healthy lifestyle and for a healthy diet. Experts explain that eating bone off the meat provides protein that rebuild muscles, but it is the tendons, ligaments and the like that provide a specific amino acid profile that help rebuild tissues. These include high amounts of arginine, alanine and lysine.

Because of this nutritional content, drinking bone broth is great for youth-seekers, athletes, and those with digestive problems, because of its collagen-building factor; high concentrates of glucosamine, chondroitin and other joint-building nutrients; and digestive health.

Bone broth is available in different formats – frozen liquid that can be heated before consumption, and in protein powder form.

Watch List

couc10gukaavvloThe products under the watch list are those termed “interesting”, but not necessarily scalable and merchandisable. Nonetheless, they are worth investing in based on their nutritional content and market pull.

  • Rebel Elixirs are stress-fighting adaptogens that are naturally sourced from super-herbs, such as Ashwagandha, Maca Root, Cat’s Claw, Turmeric, Reishi, Ginseng, and Eleuthero.
  • Mushroom is known for its “anecdotal and scientific measures, including longevity and cleansing”.
  • Matcha is the only type of tea that can survive HPP and cold brew process. Its latte format is going to be the “preferred scalable trend”.
  • Algae has become an ingredient in numerous products. When harvested correctly, it will have a great future.

Maple Water and Prickly Pear are two examples of products categorized as interesting – something to watch out for, rather than those that will change the market.

US Australian Wine Export Report

Wine Australia’s Head of Market for the Americas, Aaron Ridgway, takes a look at the latest US Australian wine Export Report and the current market for Australian wine in the U.S.  While it’s been a tough ride for many in recent years, there are now clear signs of recovery

AUSTRALIAN WINE – STILL AN EMERGING CATEGORY IN THE WORLD’S BIGGEST WINE MARKET?
While the challenges of selling Australian wine in the U.S. remain significant, the release of their latest export figures in October 2016 certainly indicate that a broader recovery may be under way.  A decline in volume is offset by an increase in value – just the type of pendulum swing that many say the category has needed for some time.

Australia is the second-largest exporter of wine to the U.S., but less than 10% of that volume sells for above $10 AUD per litre. This, coupled with a relatively small brand set (roughly 500 brands: just ahead of Chile but well behind Argentina and only 1/3 as many as Spain), means it is not inaccurate to say that Australia is still an emerging category in the U.S.

US EXPORT REPORT – ICONIC AUSTRALIAN’ BRANDS LEAD THE CHARGE
A big winner in its quest to grow a premium Australian offering is Treasury Wine Estates, led by its iconic Penfolds and emerging sub-$15 19 Crimes brands.  ‘Our focus has been on growing in the premium segments of the US market, and we are really starting to see our investments in our brands pay off,’ says TWE’s Chief Marketing Officer, Simon Marton.  ‘Innovation within our brands to drive growth is fundamental and we will continue to bring creative distinctive new wines to the US market to drive interest and excitement with wine consumers.’

THE ON TRADE: AN OPPORTUNITY FOR FINE AUSTRALIAN WINE?
In higher end restaurants, a tough channel for Australian wines in recent times, there are signs that a door may be starting to open. Importers like Negociants USALittle PeacockVine Street Imports and Hudson Wine Brokers continue to promote restaurant-focused wines, particularly in the key New York market.  Michael Engelmann MS, Wine Director at the Modern in Manhattan, has evolved the restaurant’s 3,000-bottle list to include 100 wines from Australia – up from just a dozen or so when he started.  He often pours Australian wines by the glass, something that is still, sadly, a rarity in starred big city restaurants.  But according to Engelmann, there is interest beyond what’s currently imported – surely another sign that Australia is still emerging.  ‘Do I see room for a few more Aussie producers?  Yes.  It’s just a question of whether I can get them or not.’

US EXPORT REPORT – IS PREMIUM AUSTRALIAN WINE THE WAY FORWARD IN THE U.S.?
For Australian wineries of any size, a key puzzle remains extracting results from traditional distributor partnerships.  Three-quarters of all wine sold in the United States is domestic, and large wine companies tend to occupy much of the mind share (not to mention monthly and annual sales targets) in the top distribution tier.  With two-thirds of the wholesale wine market belonging to the top 10 distributors, it remains challenging for large Australian portfolios to compete with Californian wine, and equally tricky for smaller houses looking to take a position on Australia to achieve traction alongside the majors.

Gary Gaines, Senior Vice President of Chains at the Winebow Group, which operates in 20 states and sells a mix of importer-sourced and direct-import Australian brands, cites premium price points combined with greater varietal diversity as key for the category’s future.  ‘If you look at where Australia is really performing today, it’s in the $14.99-19.99 retail segment,’ he said, adding that much of his portfolio’s growth is coming from family-owned wineries.

THE AUSTRALIAN WINE REVIVAL IN THE U.S. GAINS MOMENTUM
While California, the U.S.’s largest market for Australian wine, was marginally off in the 12 months to September, there are signs that independent volume retail is on the up.  Ryan Woodhouse, who buys the Australian wines at K&L Wine Merchants in California, is very upbeat about interest and sales in his stores.  ‘I think (Australian wine) has definitely turned a corner in perception. For years’ people have been saying that Aussie wines are bouncing back, but as of the last 12 months that’s finally ringing true.’

Inception of the American Viticulture and the French Winemakers

While one cannot speak of sustained French immigration to the American colonies, some notable examples can be cited. The Labadists were mystics who lived communally on their 4,000 acre Maryland farm. There were the French settlers of Gallipolis in Ohio who, it appears, produced a wine so poor in quality it was named méchant Suresne after a wine known for its sourness produced near Paris.

The arrival of French Huguenots in South Carolina is of particular interest because, for the first time, a large group of settlers reached the New World with the primary aim of growing grapes. They had left France for England to escape religious persecution and in 1763 petitioned the British Government to provide them with land in South Carolina so that they could “apply themselves to the cultivation of vines and of silk.”

The request was approved. Setting sail a year latter, the Huguenots reached South Carolina founding the township of New Bordeaux in the southern part of the colony. They were joined four years later by another group of co-religionists lead by the forceful Louis de Mesville de Saint Pierre. But now came a setback. The colony’s governing body refused to provide the settlers with the funds needed to purchase vine cuttings. Saint Pierre thereupon decided to return to England and appeal for financial aide to Lord Hillsborough secretary for the American Colonies, but to no avail.

Rumors had it that Hillsborough had received a 250,000 British pounds bribe from French wine 2 merchants dismayed at the prospect of losing the lucrative American and British markets. Budgetary constraints are a more likely explanation. A costly war with France had just ended forcing the British Government to reduce expenditures. It was about that time that Parliament, seeking new sources of revenue, passed the Stamp Tax and Revenue Act which set the stage for the American Revolution. Samples of New Bordeaux wine were submitted to the Royal Society earning for Saint Pierre a gold metal but nothing more.

Other personal appeals proving to be equally fruitless–one was even addressed to King George III– Saint Pierre decided to take his message to the public publishing a tract bearing the lengthy title, The Great Utility in Establishing the Culture of Vines and the Absolute necessity of Supporting the Infant Colony of French Protestants Settled in New Bordeaux South Carolina, who have brought the Culture of Vine and the Art of Raising Silk to Perfection.

When nothing came of this, Saint Pierre had no recourse but to sail back to South Carolina stopping off in Madeira, however, to purchase vine cuttings. (Had financial support been provided by wealthy Huguenots?) A final setback awaited his return for the cuttings died soon after being planted, victims of the root-boring lice, phylloxera. The New Bordeaux community eventually scattered, Saint Pierre being its last resident.

He would die in the first year of the American Revolution, the victim of an Indian attack. Although Saint Pierre was unable to create a productive vineyard, his efforts were not lost on future winemakers, especially those from Bordeaux who knew of the fledgling community across the ocean that bore the crescent city’s name, and of the valiant grape grower who had ventured there.

Some followed his example and many more seriously 3 considered doing so, for after Saint Pierre, sailing to the New World to grow grapes had become a realistic prospect appealing to adventurous souls willing to brave the unknown.
