" Entrust your contaminant analyses to a specialist "

Juice and drinks sector

This sector is divided into two families :

  • The fruit juice market,
  • Refreshing non-alcoholic drinks.

A fruit juice is defined as a liquid or drink made by crushing or squeezing fruit. It can be completely natural or produced by mixing various fruits, water and other chemical substances. This market is segmented into 4 main categories: pure juices, smoothies, juices from concentrate and fruit nectars.

The market for non-alcoholic soft drinks (BRSA) was marked by a drop in growth from 2016 onwards. This sector has undergone a facelift to meet a new challenge: adapting to the more demanding needs and demands of consumers. Today, a wide range of products can be found within the BRSAs, of different types, tastes and packaging: colas, lemonades, orangeades, lemonades, tonics, bitters, flavoured waters, iced teas, energy drinks, etc.

Several studies showed already in 2017 that beverage trends would be based on consumer demand for healthy and easy-to-eat foods. Indeed, the search for naturalness and wellness foods has been at the top of the list for several years.
