Growth of Energy Drinks
Energy drinks are up £200m in value year-on-year, and more than £100m of that is down to the Monster brand – the fastest-growing energy drinks brand in GB. Monster Co. brands have led the diversification of the energy sector in recent years, which has helped the sector to become more mainstream in line with wider soft drinks, appealing to more consumers, on more occasions. Energy drinks now offer the choice and great taste of soft drinks, but with added functional benefits and is now worth almost £801m in convenience, the largest soft drinks segment in the channel.
“The return of the on-the-go mission alongside the enduring home-based occasions that arose in lockdown – combined with consumer demand for zero sugar, innovative new flavours and drinks with added functionality – means the growth of energy drinks is set to continue,” said Pippa Collins, Associate Director of Commercial Development at CCEP GB.
“Coupled with strong brands and activation plans, the Sales Supercharged initiative is one of the ways we are supporting convenience retailers make their energy fixture work even harder. It was encouraging to hear the success stories from Amrit, Lucy and Stephen and we’d like to thank them for being part of the campaign, sharing business benefiting advice with their retailing peers.”
