Current consumer demand for low- and no-calorie beverages is not a short-term trend. Foodservice and retail businesses can increase profitability not by replacing what they're already doing, but by adding choices.
Minute Maid represents a beverage category previously not available with Coca-Cola Freestyle. These selections are part of a strong lineup, where brands communicate quality and great taste in the minds of consumers.
According to recent sales numbers in the United States, 48% of Coca-Cola Freestyle drinks consumed are products that fall outside the traditional top 10. Just like with other retail industries, such as music or clothing, greater choice frequently leads to greater overall sales. Why? Because more choice means broader reach and personalized experiences relevant to the way today's consumers like to think about meals and snacks.
