Squeezing the Juice from the Fruit Beverage Market

Historically, a simple mention of “100% Juice” was sufficient to encourage a consumer to purchase fruit beverages based on what appeared to be a healthy choice. However, with greater consumer awareness of the sugar content of juice, the movement of consumers away from sugary beverages, and the decline of traditional breakfast habits, fruit beverage shipments have been on a recent decline. As manufacturers change their product lines to appeal to new consumer habits, a range of new beverage options marketed as healthy has entered the market.
